To deliver Specialist interventions that include individual/group therapy as well as in-setting support, and are developed and delivered in consultation with teaching staff, parents and children as appropriate.

To prepare and deliver Targeted and Universal interventions such as training and collaborative work, to develop the awareness and skills of teaching staff, parents and other stakeholders, so that they are able to support the development of children’s communication skills.

To communicate effectively with parents and schools, through written reports, meetings etc, reflecting the needs of a culturally- and linguistically-diverse school population.

To collaborate with other professionals such as Specialist Advisory Teachers and Educational Psychologists.

To monitor, assess, record and report on the impacts of interventions to schools, funders and other stakeholders.

The service is well-resourced and the successful candidate will have access to appropriate support and development opportunities, such as clinical supervision and CPD.
