Surrey is investing in Young People. Following a major transformation of our services for young people, we have realigned our resources to focus on three strategic objectives: to increase participation in education, training and employment; to keep young people safe from crime and anti social behaviour; and to deliver more quality youth work locally.

Our ambition is to achieve 100% participation by young people aged 16-19. A key element to this strategy is the creation of a new in-house Special Educational Needs Development Team, Pathways Team (SEND) to deliver a case work approach to young people who hold a Statement.

Our newly formed integrated Pathways Team (SEND) needs experienced and qualified practitioners to deliver the work in various locations across the county, particularly in the East of the County.

We have vacancies for qualified practitioners who can offer experience in Connexions, or IAG work.

As a Pathways Adviser you will be working with young people with Statements of SEN, their families, providers and professionals and will support the placement of young people aged 16 to 25 to ensure a successful transition from school to further education, training and employment opportunities.

You will deliver a range of services including 1-1 interviews, attend transition/annual reviews, completion of S139as. This may include work with young people who have high needs.

For an informal discussion about this role, please contact Penny Easton, 01483 519388, 07837 531083. .

An enhanced CRB disclosure and a Children’s and Adults barred list check will be required for this role.

Surrey County Council is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

We want to be an inclusive and diverse employer of first choice,
reflecting the community we serve and particularly welcome applications
from all under represented groups.
