Educational psychologists (EPs) are employed by local authorities, and it is for those authorities to determine how many to employ in light of their assessment of local needs and available resources, and to plan for future needs. The Department does not undertake any manpower planning assessment for this group of local employees.

The full-time equivalent number of EPs in post in local authorities in England, as at January 2006, was 2,200, with 109 full-time vacancies.
