The Doctorate in Educational, Child and Adolescent Psychology (DECAP) seeks to provide qualified educational psychologists to work in Northern Ireland.

The DECAP is a three year (36 month) postgraduate professional training course, approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) as conferring eligibility for chartered status and for employment as a qualified educational psychologist. The course is based in the School of Psychology at Queen’s University Belfast and placements are undertaken in a variety of educational, health or community settings.

Graduates who have a good Honours degree (with GBC) in Psychology are eligible to apply for the DECAP course once they have had relevant experience in working in an appropriate setting with children or young people.
In the normal course of events, this experience is likely to follow the award of the degree: successful applicants are those who are able to communicate to the course selection panels the ways in which they have brought to the work experience the psychological knowledge, theories, evidence and practices which they have learned, and how these have informed and influenced their work. There is no strict criterion in terms of length or quantity of the experience: quality, relevance and the application of psychological knowledge in practice are likely to be the most important factors - broad rule of thumb would be at least two years’ full-time equivalent.
