Training to be an EP

The route to becoming an EP in the UK is not the same for each country but there are some common things that you’ll need:

  • Evidence of work with children and families for at least a year
  • A driving license (usually)
  • Knowledge of the EP role and current issues within the profession
  • Awareness and knowledge of research skills
  • Knowledge and a commitment to equal opportunities
