About Us and Our Professional Standards
We are members of the British Psychological Society and a founder member of the Association of Business Psychologists. We are also Registered with the HPC as Occupational Psychologists – the HPC is the UK Government’s Regulatory Body for Psychologists.
To qualify as a Chartered Occupational Psychologist it is essential to have a first degree in Psychology, and a Masters degree, followed by intensive practical training under the supervision of an existing Chartered Occupational Psychologist. Chartered Occupational Psychologists are also required to maintain active Continuing Professional Development activities.
Any unqualified or unregulated individual can offer career guidance services under the title of ‘work’, ‘organisational’, ‘career’ or ‘business’ psychologist. However, the title ‘Occupational Psychologist’ is protected in law and only those who have reached the qualification threshold for registration with the HPC and hold current HPC Registration are allowed to use it.
We develop and publish Psychometric Tests and were one of the first firms in the UK to pioneer On-Line Psychometric Assessment.
