Here you will find blog posts by EFPTA members on various issues relevant to psychology education in high schools in Europe. You are invited to contribute!

Scroll further down to see the archive of EFPTA's Annual Newsletters, which this blog page now replaces, as we will no longer produce an Annual Newsletter - instead, we hope that this new blog page will provide an opportunity for more members to contribute to EFPTA activities! That said, we are keeping the archive here as there is a wealth of information in these old Newsletters, much of it still highly relevant today.
