Term time plus non pupil days and one additional week, 37 hours per week
An exciting opportunity has arisen to appoint a Psychology graduate to the well-established position of Psychology Intervention Manager due to the success of our current post holder gaining a place on the highly competitive Educational Psychology Doctorate programme.
The school is looking to appoint someone with enthusiasm and creativity and excellent interpersonal skills. The successful candidate will need to be a team player who has the confidence to speak in front of members of staff and also good listening skills and empathy. It is essential that you have experience of working with children and highly desirable that you studied child development as part of your Psychology degree. Experience of solution focused approaches, research and CBT work would be ideal.
The role will include leading small group sessions such as a social skills group for students with ASD, observing identified students in lessons followed by using coaching techniques to help break down barriers for learning, mentoring sessions with students, and contributing to person-centered meetings. The successful candidate will work closely with the Learning Support Department and Pastoral Team at The Boswells School, as well as the school’s Educational Psychologist and other outside agencies. It is expected the successful candidate will contribute to the further development of the role once in post.
