Apex Inclusion is a key component in delivery of our early and effective intervention strategy. The Inclusion service is funded to work alongside the schools to equip pupils with the motivation and skills required to engage in a formal learning environment; reduce exclusion; raise aspiration; tackle ingrained behaviour and attitudes; improve family relationships and increase attainment and attendance, contributing to more young people entering positive destinations when they leave school.
In Fife we work in partnership with two secondary schools to provide a full time Inclusion service. This award-winning model is also delivered in schools in Aberdeen and Dundee.
Due to changes in the structure and staffing within our school Inclusion services, we now require to fill two roles within our team: a Team Leader and an Inclusion worker.
The post below is for Team Leader only. The Inclusion worker vacancy is shown on a separate page. Job share applications will be considered.
To be considered for both posts please use one application form and quote reference IW/BOTH, otherwise please use the reference given for each individual part-time post.
The role of the Team Leader is to support the Schools Development Manager in operational areas including attendance management, staff development and training, induction, quality assurance, evidence gathering and statistics and representing Apex at meetings and forums.
For this post you will have experience of working with socially excluded young people and be able to develop and deliver a training programme that identifies and meets the needs of individuals. Experience of delivering group work and one to ones to young people overcoming multiple barriers are essential for supporting participants to achieve their potential. The ability to work with a range of other disciplines is also essential. As this post is school based, staff will be required to take annual leave during school holiday periods and not during school term time.
Due to the area covered in the Team Leader role, a driving licence or access to a means of transport would be an advantage but not essential.
In view of the nature of this post, the successful candidate will be required to join the PVG scheme for working with children.
