Job Description
An Education Welfare Officer post has become available within the Education Welfare Service.

The Education Welfare Service is a statutory service that offers a quality provision to children, their families and schools. The aim of the service is to enable children and young people to benefit from the educational opportunities available. This can be through supporting families to resolve any problems of non-attendance or increasing education from reduced timetables to accessing opportunities full time

This is an exciting time to become part of the EWS team, due to the impact that COVID had upon school attendance both locally and nationally

This Authority is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment by supporting schools with welfare concerns as well as having their own professional curiosity and acting upon it appropriately

Candidates must also possess a full driving licence and have access to a vehicle.*

The post is subject to Enhanced DBS disclosure.

We welcome applications from the BAME community.

Council employees are required to abide by the ethical standards embodied by the 7 NOLAN principles of conduct in public life. These include selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership.

For informal discussion please contact Helen McCabe Team Manager for Education Welfare Service and Engagement 07766366941
