This is an exciting opportunity at a time of significant change for a suitably qualified and experienced person to manage and co-ordinate the Inclusion Service. The Inclusion Service provides support for schools and families for children and young people with a wide range and high level of additional learning needs (ALN). The Service consists of a number of services including the Additional Learning Needs Support Service 0-16 and post 16, the Educational Psychology and School Based Counselling Service, the Support for Learning Service and the Wellbeing and Behaviour Service, along with commissioned services. The successful candidate will be committed to effective partnership working with other agencies to provide the best possible outcomes for children with ALN, while planning for the implementation of new legislation and practices through ALN reform.

You will need to be resilient and resourceful; you will have stamina and possess proven leadership skills. You will be able to give sound advice to mainstream and special schools about how best to support pupils with ALN and you will have the credibility to foster and develop excellent working relations with schools, families and wider agencies in NPT. You will ensure that all the most vulnerable pupils in NPT are given access to the highest quality learning experience that we can provide.

You will be committed to a Person Centred Practice (PCP) approach to working, providing high quality training, support and intervention. You will work with a range of services to ensure effective processes to provide high quality planning, while placing the child at the centre of decision making.

You will provide vision, direction and strategic leadership for the Inclusion Service, embrace challenge and be a passionate supporter of achievement for all. You will be committed to the concept of inclusive education and will have an excellent understanding of the challenges facing schools, children and young people and their families within NPT.
