Hi - I am an EP and I have to say that I've met plenty of inspiring EP's depsite post 18's comments!!! Take a look at the TES new research column and you'll see that lots of the contributions are from EP's. In terms of Asst EP's mentioned in the posting above, I was an Asst EP in Essex and I simply found my ad in the local newspaper - Essex has about 10 places per year - I know Norfolk has some Asst EP posts as does Milton Keynes area - there are probably loads more around the UK. A good place to look is to join the BPS and get their adverts bulletin - that often has Asst Psychologist posts (which seems to be more common now than Asst EP psychs - I've seen a few lately). Also I think something like a TA working with BESD pupils in schools/specialist services would look good on an application to be an EP. Good luck with your applications.
