This is an exciting opportunity to join our team in the role of Inclusion Adviser, developing and delivering the inclusion agenda in Barking and Dagenham, supporting school improvement for SEND and Inclusion, and playing a key role in supporting vulnerable children across the borough.
Barking and Dagenham is the youngest, fastest growing borough in London. With a strong track-record of improving standards across our school community, driven by genuine partnership within and between schools and the council, ours is an exciting environment in which to work and develop your career.
With over 90% of our schools rated good or excellent, we have made great progress in recent years. But we’re not satisfied yet. We have created BDSIP to help drive further improvement in achieving the best possible outcomes for all our children and young people, particularly the most vulnerable.
Majority owned by local schools, we are a not-for-profit company delivering a broad range of services for schools and the council. With Barking and Dagenham’s population set to increase dramatically, we are well placed to grow with and beyond the borough.
You will have a passion for championing CYP with SEND to secure their wellbeing and ensure they achieve the best possible outcomes. You will have a proven track record in teaching CYP with SEND and will have significant experience of leading and supporting teams to drive the inclusion agenda. You will have highly effective interpersonal and presentational skills to engage a wide range of stakeholders across education, social care, health and business.
Working across the 3-19 age range, you will lead the design and delivery of high quality SEND and inclusion services for schools. This includes providing leadership, school improvement support, inclusion advice and high-quality CPD for SENCOs and inclusion teams working across mainstream and specialist provisions. You will play a key role in shaping our organisation and growing service offer. You will also ensure council commissioned service priorities are delivered responsively and effectively and will help lead the development of peer-to-peer support and collaborative working between schools.
If you think you have the expertise and leadership skills to take up this exciting challenge and to help shape our future, we would love to hear from you.
Interviews will be scheduled for Thursday 22nd and/or Friday 23rd April 2021.
