This is a varied role where practitioners hold a 50/50 workload between working closely with professionals, children and young people, families and the wider school community to deliver engaging Whole School Approach (WSA) activites, and a supervised clinical caseload to deliver high-quality; outcome-informed, evidence-based interventions for children and young people experiencing mild to moderate anxiety, low mood and behavioral difficulties. 

Ongoing CPD and service experience will equip post holders with the necessary knowledge, attitude and capabilities to ensure that children and young people will have access to high quality, evidence based mental health support and to influence the whole school culture in relation to mental health and wellbeing.
