The ability to be alert to the ethical dimensions of practice and to acquire professional knowledge and skills to make informed ethical decisions is a core competency of educational psychologists. This chapter focuses on a review of approaches to teaching and learning about ethics on one professional training programme for educational psychologists in Scotland. The framework for this review incorporated documentary analysis of professional codes, the accreditation handbook and the programme handbook; literature on moral development and ethical behaviour, ethical theories, positive psychology, and teaching and learning about ethics; dialogue with colleagues from different disciplines; and an exploratory investigation into the ethical perspectives of a group of student educational psychologists at the beginning of their professional training. The chapter concludes with a consideration of how the review led to a re-evaluation of approaches to teaching and learning about ethics on the professional training programme and lessons for other training programmes in the UK and further afield.
