Our partnership with social enterprise Catalyst Psychology provides valuable student placements


Catalyst Psychology is a social enterprise providing child and educational psychology services within the Greater Manchester area. This is supported by a team of qualified Educational Psychologists, Assistant Psychologists and administrative staff who help deliver a number of psychological services in schools.

Catalyst Psychology has been a partner of Edge Hill University for a number of years, and has supported many undergraduate psychology students on placement to enable them to gain invaluable experience relating to the role of an Educational Psychologist. Additionally, Catalyst Psychology contributes to our undergraduate curriculum, specifically within the BSc Educational Psychology strand of our programmes.

“All students who have been fortunate to undertake placement work with Catalyst have reported having extremely rewarding and meaningful experiences. This has translated not only into enriched opportunities for the purpose of course assignments, but also in developing key transferable skills relevant to a range of educational-based roles.”

Dr Linda Kaye, Educational Psychology Programme Leader
