Pupils who are unable to attend lessons within the MET base are offered 1-1 sessions or small group classes via Teams and in some instances within the home or school setting.

The successful candidate will work alongside a team of committed teachers and support staff and will be based at our Worcester unit, which shares a site with Newbridge PRU.  The site is open to pupils from Monday – Thursday the successful candidate is required to be on site for a minimum of 3 days, with the potential for flexible working arrangements to be made on the 4th day.
The caseworker has responsibility for the children accessing the Worcester MET and developing Individual Education Plans to support each child’s learning.  The caseworker will also line manage a core department, the staff who work within the unit and will work collaboratively with the Medical Education Team lead and other Senior Teachers to ensure that children accessing the MET across the County are provided with equitable opportunities to address gaps in their learning and thrive within education whilst preparing for reintegration or their next steps in education.
