The hours of work are flexible to a degree but will need to meet the requirements of the service ,although we are looking for 3 days a week as described above.

It will be critical to be flexible and adaptable to working in new ways. We are seeking someone that will embrace the use of new technologies and new ways of working as we emerge from the Coronavirus Pandemic and help children with health issues to make academic progress in spite of their personal barriers to learning.

Information about the school

Each hub has a mixture of teaching and other specialist staff and provides advice and guidance to schools and services on working with pupils with both mental health and physical health needs as well as the provision of shot term educational placements. Pupils are supported with their education in one of the specialist hubs either full or part time and a growing number are supported by online learning means. These are intended to be short term placements, and are provided as part of a supported reintegration programme. Access to E-learning and tuition in the service is also possible. This is an important appointment in the development of the service.
