Job Title: SEND Expert by Experience Advisor
Salary Range: £22,462 - £24,799
Hours: 37 hours per week
Contract: Fixed Term - 1 Year
Hertfordshire County Council is currently going through an exciting review and transformation of its Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) provision across the county.
There is a widespread review in place across all aspects of housing, employment, health, social care and leisure and Hertfordshire County Council requires increased understanding of how these services are being delivered from someone with first-hand experience.
This is your opportunity to help shape the local offer of SEND, and have a direct input in to the services that are provided to young people with learning needs across Hertfordshire.
Within the role you will attend a number of meetings alongside existing members of the SEND Transformation team and you will be a valuable voice to both advice and direct all attendees on key decisions. You will form part of a Hertfordshire County Council consultation team to the public, private and voluntary sectors by using your experiences of special educational needs and disabilities. The experiences that you will have been through in regards to housing, employment, health, social care and leisure will give the team an invaluable insight and will help shape how each of these will be delivered for future young people with SEND.
In taking on this role you will have a positive impact on future young people with SEND in Hertfordshire, and help ensure they have the most appropriate and varied options available to them as they enter adulthood.
