You will provide high quality safeguarding and inclusion advice, support and guidance across Camden’s schools, working with senior leaders to continue to improve delivery in this area and to keep Camden school students safe. This will include ensuring schools can access high quality training and support which is delivered by suitably experienced and qualified professionals.

This is a great opportunity for someone who is looking for a hands-on role where you can really make an impact. The successful candidate will champion the educational engagement and attainment for young people with actual or potential wellbeing and/or safeguarding issues through innovative practices.
