Pembrokeshire County Council
Job Description

Grade 6 - £25,979 for 37 hours per week for 45.8 weeks per annum equating to £22,820.07 pro rata.

Pembrokeshire County Council have an exciting opportunity to join the Education Welfare Service, as an Elective Home Education Assistant for the Electively Home Educated community, working on a term-time only basis.

The post holder will join an already established EHE Advisor, working at the heart of a well-regarded and high performing Education Welfare team, ensuring home educated children are receiving a high-quality education which allows them to reach their potential.

As the EHE Assistant you would be responsible for supporting the EHE Advisors to provide advice and guidance to parents/carers wishing to, or who are currently, electively home educating their children in Pembrokeshire. This role requires strong relationships to be built with families to ensure good support is provided. The development of family engagement opportunities such as parent forums, support groups and educational activities will be key in providing support to our families.

We are looking for someone who is passionate and committed to supporting positive, solution focused outcomes for children and young people.

The role involves liaising with professionals to ensure electively home educated children are adequately safeguarded, learning and enjoying their education.

To carry out the role you will need high levels of communication and organisational skills as you will need to prioritise and work independently. You will also need to be open minded and have a creative understanding of educational provision.

You will need emotional resilience for this role, and be committed to Pembrokeshire County Council's values.

We are offering agile working arrangements with a base in County Hall, Haverfordwest.
