The Doctorate in Educational and Child Psychology (DECPsy) is a highly sought-after three-year, full-time professional training course for candidates interested in pursuing a career as an educational psychologist. This course will equip candidates with the necessary competencies to work in a range of autonomous and collaborative professional roles that are performed by educational psychologists (EPs) in a variety of contexts and with a range of client groups. The overall aim of the DECPSY programme is to enable trainee educational psychologists (TEPs) to effectively integrate theory and practice and become skilled and accountable professional practitioners. The doctorate programme will enable candidates to acquire an advanced knowledge and understanding of psychological theory, methods, evidence, research and practice. Moreover, it will provide candidates with the ability to apply psychological methods, insights and interventions in work with a wide array of clients, problems and contexts.

As a new professional training course, application has been made to the Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI) for accreditation of the DECPsy.
