Educational Psychology Performance
As a learning organisation the educational psychology service continually evaluate our work in a variety of ways. We do this through self evaluation and seeking the views of those we work with collaboratively. The information below gives a flavour of how we do this.
Supervision and Support
Aberdeenshire Educational Psychologists abide by the Ethics and Code of Conduct outlined by the British Psychological Society. All psychologists participate in formal and informal supervision on a regular basis. This takes the form of both line management and peer support. This support is further extended through regular team meetings and whole service development days.
Aberdeenshire Council is committed to providing high quality services and delivering high standards of customer service. As a customer of Aberdeenshire Council, you have the right to be treated fairly and considerately when using any of our services whether in person, by phone, in writing or by e-mail. The EPS Standards and Performance document highlights the level of service you should expect and gives you the opportunity to let us know if we do not meet these standards.

Customer Service Excellence (CSE)
Customer Service Excellence is a government approved quality improvement tool for organisations. It replaces Charter Mark, but maintains the aim of helping an organisation develop a clear understanding of its current and potential customer base. It emphasises the need for an organisation to adapt its practice to meet more effectively the needs of service users.
Customer Service Excellence demands that an organisation "listens, acts and delivers" for the benefit of its service users.
Aberdeenshire Educational Psychology Service is proud to continue to maintain the Customer Service Excellence Accreditation.
Validated Self-Evaluation (VSE)
Aberdeenshire Educational Psychology Service took part in a week of Validated Self-Evaluation (VSE) activities in collaboration with the Local Authority and Education Scotland during the week beginning 3 October 2016. This led to the successful validation of the service’s self-evaluation, highlighting the strengths of the service and identifying agreed next steps to further improve our self-evaluation processes. For further information please view the service's own report and action plan (pdf 390KB) and Education Scotland’s report.
