About Camden Learning
Camden Learning is a local education partnership established in 2017 and jointly owned by Camden Council and Camden’s schools. A company limited by guarantee, it was created for the benefit of all our children and schools, with a core focus on school improvement. We have made good progress in building Camden Learning and developing greater capacity locally for a school-led system. We have a strong relationship with schools and have worked closely with leaders to put the architecture in place to provide stronger and more creative connections between them.
Camden also has a strong and vibrant supplementary school sector, which is reflective of the diversity of communities that make up Camden, as well as a wide range of out of school settings. This post will work with those supplementary schools, out of school settings and VCS organisations to deliver quality education to their communities and ensure children are safe. The post holder needs to have an awareness of supplementary schools and effective safeguarding arrangements. They will also need to be organised, self-motivated, be able to work independently and be able to engage with a diverse range of people.
Out of school settings is an overarching term that refers to any organisation that is providing educational support or activities to children under the age of 18 outside of school hours, including supplementary schools and other organisations.
We have a fantastic opportunity for a highly organised and diligent Adviser to lead on developing and implementing Camden’s Out of School Settings Strategy, ensuring compliance with DfE guidance, with a specific focus on safeguarding arrangements. The post holder will be responsible for provision of support, information and advice for supplementary schools, with an emphasis on quality of education and safeguarding. One of the main objectives is to build effective relationships across supplementary schools through the development of sector networks.
The post holder will be expected to work flexibly as the role will require them to regularly work outside of regular office hours.
This post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act and will require an Enhanced DBS.
To be considered for this exciting opportunity it is essential the successful candidate is educated to degree level in a relevant subject or professional qualification of an equivalent level in education, health, youth or social care.

Additionally, you’ll have previous demonstrable experience of working with supplementary schools, out of school settings and community groups to keep children safe, raise aspirations and support educational achievement.
The ideal candidate will possess excellent interpersonal skills including the ability to cultivate and maintain strong networks and relationships to influence out of school settings to raise standards in organisations external to Camden Learning and the Council.
