Cluster Educational Psychologist
Do you want to make a genuine difference in young people’s lives? Then here is a great role, in a great group to do just that. We are looking to appoint a Cluster Educational Psychologist for East Midlands and Oxfordshire cluster of schools. Working across four large secondaries (Northampton Academy, Kettering Buccleuch Academy, North Oxfordshire Academy and Campion School), this role will require a high-quality candidate to provide psychological support for students in the school setting. You will provide assessments and appropriate consultation for schools, working closely with school SENCo and leaders. This will also include delivering training to teachers and other key workers to promote an outcome focused approach.
The role will need someone who is positive, transparent and works well with all key stakeholders. Candidates applying will have an HCPC registration as an Educational Psychologist along with ideally a minimum of 2 years’ experience working with children and young people.
As this role involves working across four schools set apart geographically, the successful applicant must be able to drive or commute between the four schools.
The cluster schools are part of United Learning, a large, and growing group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England. Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.
As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.
We are working hard to become a more diverse organisation – which is key to our commitment to bringing out the best in everyone. We welcome applications from everyone committed to this ethos and would particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic candidates, who are currently under-represented in the Group as a whole. We always appoint on merit. We are open to discussing flexible working options.
Contract type – Permanent
Hours – Term time, training days + 1 week in school closure periods
Salary – highly competitive for the right candidate
Closing date – Thursday, 4th January 2024 at 12 noon
