Job Title: Manager 16+ Team : Virtual School for Children looked After and Care Leavers
Salary Range: £44,697 progressing to £47,579 pa
Hours: 37 per week
The gap between the achievement of our children in care and that of other Hertfordshire children is wide and grows wider as the young people get older. We are determined to change this so that our most vulnerable children and young people will have a better chance of a successful adult life. We are looking for a dynamic professional to take on this exciting role working with care leavers aged 16-19, colleges/universities, training providers and other partners to narrow the achievement and employment gap for this group.
Providing advice and support on effective participation strategies to teachers, further or higher education professionals, social workers, carers and employers, you will help raise aspirations and narrow the achievement gap so that young people leaving secondary school can make the best use of further education, training or employment.
The post holder must be experienced in a related teaching, youth work or social care profession with at least 5 years’ experience. Middle or senior leadership experience with a track record of proven excellence will also be essential. Experience of working with children looked after or care leavers would be a strong advantage. A current driving license will be required.
