Tommy Mackay, Helen M. Marwick, M. McIlvride

Research output: Book/ReportBook


In April 2004, Post-School Psychological Service (PSPS) Pathfinders were established for a 2-year period in 12 local authorities: Angus, Clackmannanshire, Dundee, Edinburgh, Falkirk, Fife, Glasgow, Midlothian, Perth & Kinross, South Lanarkshire, Stirling and West Lothian. These represented an extension of the existing work of educational psychology services with the 0-19 age group. Provision was also made for 2 Strategic Officers (SOs) to support local services and to work strategically at national level. PSPS works collaboratively with key stakeholders, and in particular with Scotland's Colleges, Careers Scotland, Scottish Enterprise and local training providers.
