Hackney Learning Trust is the Education department within Hackney Council. It provides a range of statutory and traded services to support the education of children, young people and adults in the borough. Our vision is to provide excellent education for every child, young person and adult learner.
The Education, Health and Care Planning (EHCP) Team is recruiting an EHCP Area Coordinator (South Team).
The EHCP Team
The EHCP Team is responsible for processing EHC assessments, co-producing and reviewing EHCP plans for children and young people aged 0 to 25. EHC plans are issued for children whose special educational needs are severe enough to warrant support from the local authority in addition to that provided by their school.
EHC Area Coordinators and EHC Plan Coordinators
Each Area Team has an EHC Area Coordinator who manages a team of EHC Plan Coordinators who work on individual children’s cases. Cases are allocated according to the school or education setting that the child attends. The team works by assigning Plan coordinators to three areas across the borough: Central, North and South Hackney.
