Job Introduction

Education Assessment Lead

At A Wilderness Way, you have the chance to profoundly impact a child's life. As an Education Assessment Lead, your role involves working closely with individual children in eight designated homes. You'll help them build confidence in their learning by helping them understand their educational strengths, challenges, and unique learning preferences. Using these insights, you'll develop tailored strategies and resources to support their academic progress and foster a positive learning environment where they can thrive. In addition to delivering 1:1 learning sessions, you'll experience a diverse range of tasks. This includes contributing to individual education plans and meetings, creating engaging educational materials, and facilitating hands-on activities/trips to build on each child’s interests. 

You'll also collaborate with our residential care teams, Clinical team and our Outdoor practitioners to help ensure holistic support and engagement are achieved in each child’s placement with us. This would typically be 17 weeks for outreach services, through to longer-term in our dual occupancy placement homes.
