Full job description


Do you want to be part of a new, dynamic team?

The Limes College is a shining example of an Alternative Provision which works in a holistic and truly Multi-Agency way. It has consistently led the way in its innovative delivery of education and support of vulnerable young people in the London Borough of Sutton.

We work very closely with our Mainstream Schools and partnership agencies to ensure the children, young people and families we work with can access the help and support they need to access the pathways to qualifications, jobs, healthy relationships and lives. For some children this is a return to mainstream school after a permanent exclusion, for others it is support into a specialist school, whichever prepares them better for their next steps towards adult life. We also do a wide range of in and out reach in the Borough and run a variety of projects which are aimed at supporting children vulnerable to permanent exclusion.

We aim to extend the project into our permanent offer to the local area, based on the National AP Taskforce pilot run by the DfE. We are looking to recruit 3 dynamic, skilled, motivated staff to join our team working with children who are both at Limes College and also out in our Mainstream Schools.

The Taskforce will be made up of a team of professionals including Speech and Language Therapists, Mental Health Specialists, Educational Psychology, SENCO, Post 16 Transition Coach, DSL, Social Worker, Family Worker and Youth (justice) Worker.

  • Work with siblings and families of these children to avoid familial patterns – Early Intervention
  • Screening and Assessment of children for undiagnosed SEND making them vulnerable to PEX and contextual issues – Early Intervention for SEND
  • Medium term therapeutic intervention to support need and or mental health crises
  • Parental support – those who are losing or have lost the ability to parent or keep their children safe due to DA, MH
  • Increase attendance
  • Reduce waiting times for children/families needing a range of support
  • Lowering Youth Violence and ASB and those known to YOT
