Clinical Education Development and Research (CEDAR)

What we do

Training the current and future psychological workforce

Our innovative training for psychological practitioners is designed around part-time study, so trainees can accommodate training and study whilst continuing to work.

This allows trainees to apply what they learn immediately into their service contexts and maximise the impact of their training.

We support professional development through flexible and bespoke training packages including CPD, masterclasses and short courses.

Enhancing access to psychological interventions

Through a close relationship between research, training and consultancy, we promote access to evidence-based psychological practice that leads to positive outcomes for service users, service providers and funders, both in England and internationally.

Research, development and innovation

We are a unique team of professionally-qualified clinicians and academics, offering specialisms in psychological practice, therapies and applied clinical research.

We develop new training and therapeutic approaches, and work closely with NHS England, Health Education England (HEE) and international partners to implement these in practice.

Consultancy and transformation

We support service improvement via bespoke consultancy and transformation: including staff training, operational guidance and leadership development, to build accessible and outcome-led services and pathways.

As leaders in the field, our staff team regularly contribute to national policy and curriculum development within the NHS.
