Our goal is to support students to develop academically, professionally, and socially; in the context of the SEND Code of Practice 2015 and preparation for adulthood this includes employment and apprenticeships, progression to higher education (HE), independent living, relationships and building confidence in different communities.
As part of an expansion to our team, we have an exciting opportunity for an Independent Living Skills Lecturer, reporting to the Head of SEND Support. This role will be central to a new provision which will focus on developing independent living skills for young people with EHCPs, with related outcomes, on vocational study programmes at Levels 1 to 3.
