Teacher - Inclusion & Wellbeing Service x 5 posts, 35 hours per week, closing date 18th February 2018

PLEASE NOTE THESE POST ARE FOR IMMEDIATE START

An exciting opportunity has arisen for teachers to become part of a new ‘forward thinking’ development within the additional support needs sector across West Lothian. As part of the re-modeling of the Additional Support Needs Service , which is now the Inclusion and Well- being Service, a scoping exercise of the Education Outreach Services took place. Following a consultation with all partners and stakeholders, the outcome was the creation of the Inclusion and Well-being support service and a HUB Model. This new model will both promote the ‘presumption of mainstream’ as well as support those young people who require a more therapeutic approach to their well-being. Staff within the Service will support children & young people across all our primary and secondary schools.

The successful candidate will have the necessary experience and leadership skills to assist in taking forward the principles of Curriculum for Excellence and GIRFEC in order to support the improvement agenda of the service. The successful candidate will support the vision for the service and implement strategies to achieve this vision. This is a key post which comes at an exciting and challenging time for education in the service.

West Lothian Council is committed to far reaching changes to the way we deliver our Education Services. These changes include giving you the support and environment that you need to get on with your job and develop your abilities. Our dedication is demonstrated by the whole council achievement of the Investors in People Standard and always aiming a little higher in our service delivery and improvements.

A relevant teaching qualification and registration with the General Teaching Council for Scotland is essential.
