About the Role

As part of a team of experienced staff, you will work alongside professionals  drawing up and delivering bespoke packages of support. This will involve mentoring the pupil, as well as working with the family and school to establish positive, effective working relationships.

A skilled practitioner, you will have experience of working with children and their families and the confidence to help those with behavioural and/or attendance problems. As well as a genuine interest in this area, you’ll also bring sound observation and evaluation skills and the ability to engage effectively with young people.

If successful:

- You will access a comprehensive induction programme.

- A peer mentor will be allocated to you.

- Ongoing peer supervision will be available.

- You will receive regular supervision with your line manager. As an Extended Support Practitioner you will provide 1:1 support and group sessions to parents and carers in need of some advice and guidance around parenting strategies; you will also be responsible for working with permanently excluded children and young people and ensuring they have a successful transition and reintegration to their ongoing school placement.

The post will work Countywide but will be based at St Mark’s House in Eastbourne.
