You will be responsible for liaising with the statutory Attendance, Exclusion & Licensing Team to ensure compliance with legislation.

You will model delivery and provide advice and guidance with regard to more complex cases to the rest of the team.

You will promote high professional standards within the team to ensure consistency in the way in which team members deliver the service across multiple schools and academies both within and external to South Gloucestershire.

You will hold a degree or equivalent professional qualification e.g. a professional qualification in Social Work, Teaching, Youth Work, Education Welfare Studies or an equivalent qualification with appropriate professional registration.

You will have substantial post qualification experience within a similar service area.

You will have an excellent understanding of the legal framework for attendance.

You will have good leadership and management skills.
