Throughout, you’ll engage successfully with the children and make sure that their voices are heard and recorded consistently.

We’ll also expect you to contribute to the team – helping us develop and improve standards. In return, we will give you the time and support you need to make a difference. We are driving down caseloads and investing heavily in better IT and mobile working technology to help staff spend more quality time doing what matters.

In return, we will give you the time and support you need to make a difference. Though we’re not complacent, we believe that our training, development and support is among the best in London – and we have plenty more in store for 2017. We are driving down caseloads and investing heavily in better IT and mobile working technology to help staff spend more quality time doing what matters.
