The University of Kent Academies Trust is seeking to recruit a proactive Speech and Language
Therapist to work across both Brompton Academy and Chatham Grammar. The post is suitable for
either an experienced or newly qualified practitioner, as there could be on-site supervision
through the preceptorship from the Lead Speech and Language Therapist.

The role involves working within our current inclusion team to deliver a specialist integrated
speech, language and communication service to secondary-aged SEND students. The SLT would
work jointly with and be supported by the Lead SLT/Therapy Lead as part of this role, which is a
flexible, part-time role, 3 days (22.5 hours) per week, term time only. The salary for this role is
equivalent to the upper end of NHS band 6 and the lower end of Band 7.

The role of the SLT is vital for a significant number of our students, particularly for those students
with EHCPs and/or underlying SLCN in mainstream and in our specialist provision, the Eliot Centre,
which is based at Brompton Academy. Working with the Therapy Lead, you will have the
opportunity to develop special areas of interest in SLCN and will be supported to access suitable
CPD to develop your role.

We are looking for a vibrant and energetic individual who wants to make a difference to the lives
of our students and who will engage with working as part of a highly committed and effective
team. You will need to be confident, resilient, approachable and a good communicator as you will
be required to liaise with students, staff, parents/carers and outside agencies. The successful
candidate will be expected to work with students from upper Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 5, and to
support and provide training to empower our staff to integrate specialist interventions and
techniques into the classroom.

The successful applicant will be coming to a multi-academy trust-wide supportive learning
environment characterised by open management, and in the knowledge that they will enjoy the
full support and care of the pragmatic (and down-to-earth) leadership team. We have a dynamic,
innovative team of professional staff who want to make a difference to the lives, aspirations and
opportunities of our young people. We would encourage applicants to visit the UKAT website to
view the many employee benefits on offer:

In order to follow social distancing guidance, visits to the Academy are not possible at this time,
but we would be happy to arrange a discussion or video call with a member of our Senior
Leadership Team to share our vision for this role with you. To arrange such a discussion, or for any
other queries about the role, please email recruitment@universityofkentacademiestrust.org.uk
