Introduction to Educational Psychology Certificate Course

Educational psychology is essentially the study of how individuals learn. Once primarily focussed on the development of children from infancy through to adolescence, the discipline has expanded over time to also include the adult learning process and this course will take you by the hand and guide you through all of the relevant concepts. The field of educational psychology looks at the process by which humans learn and store knowledge, especially in educational settings and takes into account the emotional, social and cognitive factors involved.

Although educational psychologists can use a wide variety of theoretical perspectives to evaluate problems within educational settings, there are 5 perspectives that are commonly relied upon. These are the behavioural, developmental, cognitive, social cognitive and constructivist perspectives.

This course will introduce you to all the relevant facts and details connected with the field of educational psychology. It will also help you to apply this discipline in typical scenarios in our modern world and help you to better understand why there are calls for such professionals within the workplace and educational settings.

I would like to say that I have completely enjoyed the course online and I am very pleased with the resources and information that was given. My father is very proud of me completing the course in a short amount of time and I can only give credit to New Skills Academy for giving me the opportunity to complete a qualification that will benefit me in the future. I say this because my preferred job role is a human resources manager or even assistant to start off with. Many thanks for this amazing experience and the importance of this qualification as a whole.

Would recommend the course to anyone! Considering estate agency as a career gives a clear insight into the role and regulation and was easy to digest. I was able to easily fit this in with my busy work schedule. I was able to complete this course in less than a month which I originally expected to take a lot longer. The course material is really helpful and the assignments help you to identify if you have a clear understanding of what you have read and usually don't take too long to complete. I am now looking into doing a more advance course in estate agency and looking for a trainee position in my local area.

Samantha Giles

It was great, lots of knowledge and able to learn at my own pace was fantastic, and that I have access to it after completing exam is great too!

I am excited to start further learning and will likely try another course provided from this website! Exam was easy and straight forward, and provided you with the questions you did not get correct so that you are able to further study.

I have recommended this site to friends and family, and will continue learning! Thank you so much New Skills Academy! You are an amazing site and I am grateful!

Anahita Dehghani

I’ve been searching for courses based around animals for a long time. Finally found a provider that has a lot of courses in this area. I’m really enjoying this course so far, and can’t wait to do the next one.

The course is very easy to follow, with highlighted text so that you can remember the important parts of each module and the fact you can learn at your own speed and access the course for life is great. I am a very busy working mum, and I can now fit my learning around my other commitments in my life.

Bring on future learning!

Sarah Robinson

This short course was actually very informative and interesting, and learned far more than what you can read on the internet. The modules are an excellent way to learn, as you can complete each module in your own time.

I feel as though I’ve learned a lot from this course and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in starting a career in alternative medicine or as a starter in your own business. This certificate can lead onto other courses in this field.

The customer service was excellent, quick and easy to apply online and even better, you can pay by PayPal.

Caroline Gray

Absolutely fantastic! I would definitely recommend doing this course if you are a beginner, and I would also say that you definitely do not have to worry as all three learning types are covered! It is also great to have the ability to get in touch with a tutor if stuck, especially if you haven’t got someone at home or work to help you understand something!

If I hadn’t of already completed this course and chosen to start the next level up, I would happily do this course again. However, I would recommend this course, even more so for someone who is trying to learn for a career change! Exactly what I did and because of this very reason, and feared that it would expensive to change my career, and was amazed how easy and cheap it was!
