Contract Length – 3-6-month agency contract with a view to being extended on an ongoing basis.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate expert knowledge of the SEND Code of Practice and have experience managing a complex caseload within a SEND service for a local authority.

We are looking for someone who has experience of working within a PFA (preparing for adulthood) team previously.

Key Responsibilities:

The coordinator will be expected to undertake duties in an efficient and timely manner, reaching appropriate placement decisions for children and young people aged 13/14-25, including being responsible for managing the arrangements for Phase Transfer and transitions through liaison with Social Care and Health services, schools/Colleges and parents/carers.
