Level 4 Diploma in Educational Psychology

The impact of mental health on students' well-being and educational outcomes is receiving greater attention. The demand for educational psychologists has been increasing due to various factors, such as the growing recognition of the importance of addressing students' psychological and educational needs. The learning process during early childhood and adolescence is the main focus of this area of psychology. Nevertheless, it also delves into the cognitive, affective, and social mechanisms that underpin learning across the life course. The field of educational psychology incorporates several other disciplines, including developmental psychology, behavioural psychology, and cognitive psychology. Approaches to educational psychology include behavioural, developmental, cognitive, constructivist, and experiential perspectives.

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
