Integrated Services for Learning is a multi-disciplinary service comprising of Specialist Advice and Support Service, Educational Psychologists and Statutory and SEND services that works across Hertfordshire.

A key function of ISL Specialist Advice and Support Service is to ensure that the educational and developmental progress of children and young people (0-25), with a range of SEND, are met in line with the Hertfordshire Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Strategy and HCC strategic objectives.

The post holder will have a minimum of five years teaching experience and evidence of senior management responsibilities. Although this post is currently based at County Hall, the post holder may be required to work at another location in county.
