What the school offers its staff

The Wandsworth Hospital and Home Tuition Service (HHTS) has an exciting opportunity for an Educational Care Coordinator (ECC) who is able to use BSL to join our service.

We are looking for an outstanding, innovative and compassionate person who is willing and able to engage vulnerable children, many of whom will have additional needs.

The successful applicant will predominantly be based within Corner House, but will be able to develop their expertise through working across the service as part of our skilled, multi-disciplinary team; supporting and leading activities/liaising with key professionals.

Corner House is a unique setting – it is the only National CAMHS Deaf Inpatient Unit for children and young people aged 5-18, who are experiencing a mental health crisis in the UK. It is currently undergoing a period of structural change and as a result is closed until January 2023. The re-opening offers an exciting opportunity for a dynamic and ambitious candidate, who will have the chance to develop entirely new practices and partnerships within a wide multidisciplinary team to support the children and young people holistically throughout their admission.

You will be joining our creative, caring and enthusiastic team and will receive training to support you in your role and to further develop your professional expertise.

A minimum of BSL Level 2 is required, with higher levels of BSL being desirable.
