Working 36.5 hours per week. A skilled and experienced teacher is required to join Children In Care Education Service (LACES) Outreach Team to support and promote the education of Birmingham’s Looked after Children for those placed within the city and out of authority.
You will work directly with children and young people, from birth to 25 years, some of whom have complex needs in a variety of settings, including early years’ provision, schools, colleges and children’s homes. You will develop strategies and programmes of work to improve the attainment and attendance of our children and young people, and promote ambitious aspirations. Close partnership working is a vital part of our role; we support designated teachers in all educational settings ensuring appropriate support is planned and reviewed for each looked after child in that setting. We provide training to a number of professionals and agencies including foster carers, residential workers and social workers.
You would take a strategic lead in educational priorities of the service and organise and lead on the promotion of educational achievement with our partner agencies.
There may be an opportunity for an additional part-time position (pro rota)
We are keen to appoint an enthusiastic and motivated teacher to join an experienced and highly committed team. As this post is for one of our Outreach Teams some travel will be required.
