Are you passionate about making a difference for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities?
Do you have the values, skills, vision and drive to lead a successful Education, Health and Care (EHC) Planning Team? If yes, we may have the ideal role for you in Hammersmith & Fulham.
We are looking for an outstanding professional to lead our EHCP Casework Team and support our commitment to deliver a world-class special educational needs and disability service, ensuring improved outcomes for children, young people, and their families. We are looking for an accomplished special educational needs leader, with at least three years' leadership experience in special educational needs and the SEND legal framework. This is desirable and not essential.
To lead a successful EHCP Casework Team you will need a knowledge and understanding of the SEND legal framework (Children and Families Act 2014, Education Act 1996, SEND Code of Practice, among others) and their application to both effective casework and decision making.
The EHCP Casework Team Manager will lead casework and practice across the service, applying your knowledge to provide advice and guidance on complex casework. The role will oversee the delivery of effective, responsive and legally compliant delivery of EHC casework across the 0-25 years cohort.
Attitude is equally important to us, so you will need excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to motivate staff. You will need to effectively communicate your passion to make a difference to staff and develop the confidence of parents, schools and other stakeholders.
We value our people and take care in creating the right environment for staff to succeed at work. Our employees play a key role in shaping the service priorities, systems, and processes. There is a true sense of pride in Hammersmith and Fulham Council and joint enterprise to make a difference.
This is an opportunity to join Hammersmith & Fulham, a Council with a different perspective on local government. We want to be the best council in the country and that includes changing the way we support children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.
In your application, please be sure to include any experiences you have had with regards to effective casework and decision making.
