Vacancies within SEND Assessment & Commissioning Team
19 Jul
We are excited to be recruiting to the SENDACT Service. We are two roles, at different levels, within the service and would be grateful if you could share this opportunity with any members of your teams whom you think may be interested. In Kirklees, our ambition for our children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) is the same as for all children and young people – that they achieve well in their early years, at school and in college and lead happy and fulfilled lives. We are recruiting to two roles which are central to improving outcomes for our children and young people with SEND and helping us to achieve our ambition. The successful candidates would need to be passionate and committed to the positive impact the EHC assessment, planning and provision can have on a child and young person’s access to education and preparation for adult life. A knowledge of SEN legislation and the Code of Practice is a requirement of both posts however, the expected level of knowledge differs between the two roles and training will be provided. SEND Assessment and Commissioning Officer SEND Assessment and Review Co-ordinator Enjoy your summer break.
