Surrey County Council is committed to improving services to children with additional needs.  The Team Around the School (TAS) Pilot Project aims to provide support to children and young people with additional needs at the earliest opportunity without waiting for a diagnosis or Education, Health and Care Plan.

The TAS Manager (Pilot) will work closely with: Head Teachers from a number of schools, schools’ staff, Council services, Health services, the Mental Health Alliance and the voluntary sector to ensure that the needs of children and young people are met immediately without recourse to statutory processes.

The TAS Manager will be accountable to a project Steering Group and will coordinate and support schools in using a multi-agency approach to bring together staff from a range of professions to collectively decide on the best way to support individual young people.

The project will be instrumental in aligning a number of County initiatives alongside the TAS including: Time for Kids, the i–THRIVE model and a new Neuro developmental pathway.

To be successful in this role you will need to have good communication, written and organisational skills. In addition, you should have good negotiation skills and considerable experience of working across disciplines and with partner agencies. You will be expected to understand how schools function and have a good knowledge of statutory processes within health, social care and education. 

In this role you will be responsible for the implementation of the TAS pilot and will be expected to provide update reports and monitoring reports to the TAS Steering Group and other partnership bodies as required.

We are looking for someone who is committed to working in new ways to meet the additional needs of children and who will be able to support changes to culture and behaviours across a diverse and dynamic partnership. You will play a significant part in delivering the Council’s commitment to improved outcomes for vulnerable children and young people and improving the experience of families.

The role is fixed term for one year in the first instance with the potential to extend depending on the needs of the project.
