Bi-borough Children’s Services for The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster City Council is seeking to appoint a skilled and experienced education professional to join its School Standards Team as a Senior Adviser (School Inclusion) promoting high quality inclusive educational practice across mainstream, special and alternative provision in both boroughs.
Along with contributing to the wider strategic Children’s Services’ priority of achieving the best outcomes for children and young people, this role will also have a specific responsibility for working with education partners to support strong learning pathways for vulnerable young people, including ensuring that effective action is being taken to improve attendance, prevent exclusions and young people being out of education.

Central to your duties for this role will be:

  • Making an effective contribution to the planning, implementation and continuous monitoring of the Education Service’s key strategic priorities and objectives for raising the achievement of all children and young people and promoting inclusive practice.
  • Sharing responsibility for management of bi-borough school standards and education priorities, and leadership on the bi-borough vision for education as part of the service management team.
  • To take a lead on strategic priorities for the delivery of effective SEND provision.
  • To be the designated education link adviser for alternative provision settings, special schools and mainstream schools with resource bases.
  • To support the development of alternative vocational learning pathways and high quality local careers advice for the most vulnerable and those at risk of not progressing into post 16 education or training.  

For this post we are looking for someone with a commitment to supporting the best outcomes for young people and who can demonstrate the difference they have already made to education achievement, particularly for the most vulnerable. With a teaching background, you will have had successful leadership experience in a mainstream, special school or alternative provision or setting and a thorough and up to date knowledge of educational developments and high quality inclusive practice. You will also need to be able to demonstrate excellent communication and interpersonal skills, and the ability to work effectively in partnership with schools, local authority colleagues and local stakeholders.
