Inclusion is at the heart of the Tarka Learning Partnership (TLP) which is a multi-academy trust where seeking to serve all within our community of North Devon is at our core. We will achieve this through supporting and developing the highest quality practice in our schools and across the Trust.
This role is a real opportunity to make a difference to the lives of children and young people in North Devon through applying psychological understanding to the educational world to have an impact in the short, medium and long term. This impact will be delivered through work with individuals, groups and educational settings through systemic and direct work.
We are seeking to appoint a highly effective Educational Psychologist to promote the educational and personal development of children and young people through the delivery of an effective educational psychology service in TLP schools.
This role will require the post holder to work across all TLP schools as well as supporting schools outside the trust with the same high quality working on a traded basis.
Growth and development is a key part of the values of the Trust and as such this person will be expected to be keen to develop their own practice through seeking to be involved in their own development opportunities – the Trust will seek to support this. Regular supervision is offered, as well as opportunities to work alongside another highly experienced EP.
There will also be opportunities for action research projects to support the development of excellent inclusive practice across the Trust.
Applicants must be professionally qualified and registered with the HCPC.
