A Great opportunity in the Brent Early Years Inclusion Support Team
 
Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent’s diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.
 
The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community so it is an exciting time to join us.
 
The Post

In this exciting role you will work as part of the multi-disciplinary Brent Early Years Inclusion Support Team.  You will support the development of high-quality early years Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) provision in Early Years settings across the borough.  The post-holder will have key support and advisory responsibilities within the Private, Voluntary and Independent pre-school sector and will support SENCOs to high quality implementation of the SEND Code of Practice 2014 through the graduated approach.  

During school holiday periods there are opportunities for targeted Early Years SEND project work and continuous support for year-round settings.

The Person

Do you have clearly evidenced knowledge and experience of working in the Early years sector with children with a range of SEND across the four broad areas of need?  If you are passionate about providing and advising on high quality SEND practice, strategies and interventions to support this group of children then this could be the role for you.

We are looking for a team player who has excellent intrapersonal and communication skills and is confident in liaising with parents/carers, early years setting staff and a range of multi-agency colleagues across health, social care and education.  The post holder will need to be able to demonstrate excellent child development knowledge and a commitment to inclusion and equal opportunities as well as evidence of relevant training in early years SEND interventions.  Knowledge of legislation relating to Early Years and Special Educational Needs is essential and well as in depth knowledge of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.  

This post holder will have proven experience of working effectively as a SENCO in an early years setting and effective implementation of Assess, Plan, Do Review cycles to support and promote progress.  We are also ideally looking for someone who has some experience of leading training in the area of Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities. You will need to be a confident practitioner who can take initiative and have excellent decision making skills as well as the ability to reflect and work in partnership with settings in order to achieve best outcomes.

In this role you will travel within the borough visiting settings and meeting with practitioners, SENCOs, Managers and families.  You will spend time in early years settings observing children referred to you and advising on the most appropriate support required accordingly.

If you are an experienced Early Years SEND Practitioner who wants to make a difference to the lives of young children and their families in Brent through delivering dedicated child centred services focusing on quality SEND provision, we would welcome your application.
