About the role
We are looking for two creative and innovative individuals who will specialise in either the primary or secondary phase and can demonstrate their success in securing positive and trusting relationships with families to drive this new initiative forward. The postholders will be responsible for creating bespoke packages of educational support for each child or young person with a view to helping them to fully re-engage with their learning, reach their full potential and move to a more permanent setting. Therefore, the ability to negotiate, influence and challenge across a wide range of stakeholders is essential to ensure that all partners commit to the delivery of bespoke programme so that we can achieve the best outcomes for some of our most vulnerable learners.
