Joining and benefits
Membership of the division is open to members of the British Psychological Society.
If you are not already a member you can join at the same time as applying for membership of the Society.
Members of the British Psychological Society who join the Division of Educational and Child Psychology (DECP) enjoy a number of benefits.
Membership is available at the following levels:
Students membership is for Psychology students who do not yet hold graduate basis for chartered membership of the British Psychological Society (GBC). Student membership is discounted and offers unparalleled opportunities for early-career psychologists to learn about the profession, engage with current issues and access information and resources.
Those who hold GBC are eligible to become graduate members of the DECP. The DECP supports and caters for graduates and trainee educational psychologists by offering reduced membership fees, full access to resources and CPD opportunities, and by hosting dedicated events including the annual TEP conference.
Qualified psychologists with chartered membership have additional opportunities to become involved in the work of the DECP. They may be appointed or co-opted as DECP committee members and they may also nominate or receive awards for contributions to the profession.
