Solihull Specialist Inclusion Support Service (SISS) is a well-established, highly valued, local service working closely with Solihull schools and settings to support children and young people with a range of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic Inclusion Support Practitioner to join our team of SISS staff supporting pupils with Speech, Language and Communication Disorders (SLCD) across the borough.

In this role you will liaise closely with Speech and Language Therapists, mainstream staff and the children’s families to ensure pupils’ needs are assessed holistically and specialist programmes are integrated as fully as possible into their education. This will involve developing intervention plans, in collaboration with the Team Co-ordinator and demonstrating specialist resources and modelling appropriate activities and strategies for teachers and teaching & learning assistants.

You will be based at Elmwood Place, Smiths Wood, working under the direction of the Team Co-ordinator, and travelling around the borough during the day to provide time limited educational interventions for identified pupils in mainstream schools and settings.

You will be a skilled Teaching & Learning Assistant with a Level 3 qualification in child care/child development and possess substantial experience of meeting speech, language and communication needs in an educational setting. You have effective communication skills and will be committed to working collaboratively with families and other professional colleagues in the context of the SEN Code of Practice.

As part of our commitment to staff development we offer training opportunities to ensure staff maintain and update their knowledge and skills.

Solihull Local Authority has a responsibility for, and is committed to, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults, and requires all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. A DBS check will be required for this post.

If you wish to discuss this post in more detail please contact Hilary Peace (Interim Team coordinator: SLCD Team) on 0121 704 6690

Closing date: Thurs 1st March 2018

Interviews will be held on Monday 12th March 2018
