Barnsley Educational, Child and Community Psychology Service (BECCPS) are a highly regarded forward thinking team, with a shared commitment to working collaboratively with others to build capacity and bring about positive change for children and young people. We are a high-profile service and key in informing and delivering strategic outcomes to promote positive change for children and young people with SEN. We are currently practicing within the full range of settings across Barnsley and provide a psychology service to the Youth Offending Team and Virtual school.

 

BECCPS sits within the Education Inclusion Service (EIS) with the Principal Educational Psychologists managing the Social Communication and Interaction Service and the Portage Service alongside the BECCPS, and the Specialist Senior Educational Psychologist managing the Sensory Team.  As an Educational Psychologist in Barnsley you would be working within a robust needs-led service model that supports a graduated approach with a focus on building capacity at SEN support. We value joint working, and you would have the opportunity to work collaboratively with colleagues to deliver centralised training and drive forward LA SEND agendas through task and finish working party groups.

 

Consultation approaches are at the heart of our service model, and you would be able to further develop your consultation skills to facilitate collaborative working and strengthen existing inclusive practice across Barnsley.  As a team we are committed to working with children, young people, parents/carers and other professionals through person centered, strength-based approaches that are outcome focused.

 

Here at Barnsley, we live and work by four important values: honesty, teamwork, excellent services, and taking pride in what we do. We are a service committed to Professional Development and offer a range of supervision that includes individual supervision, peer group support, and group problem solving sessions.

 

We are looking to recruit enthusiastic, creative colleagues to join a dedicated, innovative supportive team of professionals who want to play a key role in shaping future approaches to inclusion at a local authority level.  We offer excellent town centre office space, remote working, flexible working and promote a good work life balance.  We offer a full induction from a welcoming and supportive team.

 

If you are interested in joining a forward thinking, enthusiastic and committed team we would welcome and look forward to hearing from you.

 

All candidates must be professionally qualified and registered with the HCPC or be currently in training.

 

As part of this role, you will be required to travel to schools and settings out in the community.
