Re: Educational Psychology

Hi PsychPal,

Thanks for your reply. I have been working around 25 hours per week term time for the last 4 years in support positions in primary schools. I have been in each position roughly a year, but the latest is a year and a half so far. I am doing my degree part time with the OU.
