How you’ll make a difference

You will make a difference as a Practice Manager by creating an atmosphere and culture where your team members can provide an excellent service to the children, young people and families they work with. You will be part of a team that works with families, supporting them to gain the confidence, skills and knowledge to address problems and issues they might be facing and to prevent these from getting worse, which might otherwise lead to avoidable poor outcomes such as family breakdown, children coming in to care, school exclusion.

What does a typical day look like?

In a typical day you will have regular contact with your own colleagues as well as discussing cases with social care staff, school staff and the Compass Team. You will be focused on how we can get the right service to the right families at the right time.
The team also includes a function to support young people who experience additional challenges to access alternative accreditation opportunities (such as ASDAN and Duke of Edinburgh Award) and a statutory function to track and report on the Education, Employment and Training (EET) destinations of all 16-18 year olds in the area.

You will be responsible for ensuring records are kept in accordance with professional standards and prepare and present reports on cases and issues.

Therefore it is important you have a clear understanding of the national issues relating to children, young people and families and an understanding of successful strategies to improve outcomes for children, young people and families.

What’s special here is the strength of the team ethos, the support and the training.??

What we need from you:

You will have a recognised and relevant professional qualification (e.g. youth work, early years or social care – as relevant to job role) and/or a significant post qualification experience in a children’s services setting that must include experience of staff supervision.

You will have a detailed understanding of successful strategies to improve outcomes for children, young people and families and provide evidence of ongoing continuous professional development and a thorough knowledge of current legislation and practice relating to children and young people’s services.

Our teams at South Gloucestershire Council are making a real difference to the lives of people who live, work and learn here.
