SEND Officer

We are looking to appoint enthusiastic and dedicated staff to work within our Education, Lifelong Learning and Culture Service. The service has just undergone a rapid transformation and we are looking for proactive individuals to join us in moving forward with continuous improvement and working towards robust and positive outcomes for our children and young people.

On a day to day basis you will be working with colleagues in one of our SEND teams, supporting families of children with special needs and disabilities within the Post-14 Team. You will be providing bespoke delivery plans that best assist the child and the family. A passionate approach will drive forward improvement and your effective organisation and communication skills will ensure you deliver high-quality work.
