Current educational psychology trainees

Online finance system

For trainees in the 2008, 2009 and 2010 cohorts, you can access the online finance system here.

Rental agreements

Trainees requiring evidence of receipt of bursary from LGE or from us should first check whether or not the agent will accept the signed offer letter from LGE or from us as sufficient evidence of previous income.

We do not employ trainees, and cannot under any circumstances sign on behalf of an employer.

We ask that where possible you use your confirmation of training letter as evidence that you are in receipt of a bursary from us rather than making individual requests.


We will be paying fees for all existing funded trainees, including those going into Years 2 and 3 these will be paid directly to training providers. Payment of fees will be made directly to the training provider.

This does not apply to self-funded trainees.

Trainee vacancies

We have invited all local authorities to put a notice on this website to advertise current trainee vacancies for years 2 and 3 of the training programme.

We do not hold any additional information about these vacancies: please use the contact details provided in the notices of trainee vacancies for years 2 and 3 trainees. 

Please go to our educational psychology trainee vacancies page. Other sources of trainee vacancy information include the AEP bulletin and local authority websites.
