Full and part time opportunities

Following a review and investment in SEND provision within Newcastle, exciting opportunities have arisen for SEND Caseworkers. You will be working as a key part of a new 0-25 SEND structure for Newcastle supporting children, young people and their families.

The role of SEND Caseworker is paramount. You will work closely with children and young people with SEN/D and their families to understand their needs and required support. You will be responsible for coordinating Education, Health and Care assessments, plans and reviews. You will support and advise schools and settings on inclusive practice and you will also coordinate various agency involvement whilst maintaining the focus on positive and beneficial support for children and young people with SEN/D and their families.

You will use your excellent communication and organisational skills, along with your knowledge and experience to ensure a joined up and informed approach to your work. A collaborative approach to working is key. You will have a dedication to learning and developing yourself in the role as well as sharing good practice, learning points and ideas with colleagues and the wider service for the benefit of the people who work within the service but also those who access our services.

Newcastle City Council offers the opportunity to work in a vibrant city within proactive and committed services with a genuine focus on establishing services and processes which support positive outcomes for the residents of Newcastle.

As an employee of NCC, you will access a flexible working scheme, have the ability to work from home as appropriate, as well as accessing annual leave and the Local Government Pension Scheme. As part of the SEND service you will join a positive, supportive and committed service, and will be a valued member where ideas and suggestions to continuously improve are shared and welcomed as part of a continual commitment to improvement.
