How much will I get paid?

In England and Wales pay and conditions are negotiated with local government employers (Soulbury Committee) by four trade Unions: the Association of Educational Psychologists, the Association of Professionals in Education and Children’s Trusts, the National Union of Teachers and the National Association of Youth and Community Education Officers.

In Northern Ireland educational psychologists are employed by the provinces five education and library boards, and salaries are also negotiated within the Soulbury Committee. 

Structured professional assessments have been introduced to recognise the contributions of the Soulbury paid officers. These operate locally but according to agreed national criteria.

For up to date salary information please contact the Association of Educational Psychologists or the National Union of Teachers.
