We are a forward thinking and expanding SEN Team who are excited to offer the opportunity for 2 SEN Review Officers to join us in providing a quality service to help children, young people, and their families achieve their aspirations.
The post of SEN Review Officer is central for the Local Authority to meet its statutory duties regarding the annual reviews of EHC plans and transitions between key phases of education.

The work is varied and challenging, and it can often be demanding, as you would be working to statutory timescales, and liaising with a range of agencies, professionals, parents/carers and young people.
A high degree of organisational and self-management skills, as well as a positive attitude are essential, as is a sense of humour.
