Use of Delphi methodology to define professional competencies in educational psychology training

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This paper discusses two applications of the Delphi technique, an approach which allows consensus amongst experts in relation to particular issues. Two examples of using Delphi are described here. The first application involves the development of a core curriculum for working with young people aged 16-25 for providers of initial educational psychology (EP) training programmes. The second centres on the revision of the Division of Educational and Child Psychology Training Committee (DECPTC) competencies for the British Psychology Society (BPS) standards.
