The table below outlines the amount the Department for Education has allocated to the training of educational psychologists in the last five financial years. This is 54% of the total cost of the three year doctorate. The remaining 46% is funded by employers of educational psychologists (96% are local authorities) who provide a bursary or a salary while trainees are on practice placement in years two and three.
