And no, it's not all mainly "older people" with reams of experience who get the places! In my training cohort, our age span (a...

Re: Educational Psychology

Absolutely yes, Early Years teacher is seen as relevant experience. What makes you concerned that it might not be? It is still an educational setting; EPs do not work just in 'school' (5-16) settings, but are expected to work across - and therefore have skills and experience across - all kinds of se...

Re: Educational Psychology

Obviously since its a PhD It's not a PhD. It will sound pedantic to say so, but please make sure you understand the difference between a PhD (which the training is not) and an Applied Doctorate (which it is).

Re: Educational Psychology

my 6,000 words is plenty of space to cover all that I have done! Please take care to note that the length of the personal statement is limited to 6,000 characters (including lines and spaces), not 6,000 words - you may not have as much space as you think :) (See P.32 of the application handbook)
