What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking for an enthusiastic, highly skilled, and flexible Family Support Worker to work across our schools.

The successful candidate will play a crucial role in offering practical and emotional support to our pupils, parents, and families. This post would suit someone who has worked in a welfare capacity, who is non-judgemental with a commitment to supporting others and to help us expand our early help offer and support safeguarding our children and their futures.

The Family Support worker will carry out planned programmes of work with individuals and support schools and their families. This will ensure children and young people get the best start in life. The post holder should be prepared at times to work alone in families’ homes and have an ability to respond quickly to changing needs and circumstances; this may include travelling to other service areas.

The Role:

  • Provide a consistent, reliable and outcome focused support service to a caseload of families.
  • Work with parents, carers and children promoting their emotional health and well-being through a relationship-based approach
  • Develop a portfolio of resources, interventions, and training
  • Undertake a family assessment and develop a clear set of objectives and targeted outcomes.
  • Establish and maintain effective multi-agency links with key partner agencies to promote an integrated and joined up approach.
  • Ensure that programmes of support for parents are available both formally and informally. This will be initiated through assessment and local intelligence gathering to ascertain needs of the family.
  • Be alerted to safeguarding issues within a family, raising these as appropriate.
  • Support and enable families to feel confident so exit the service successfully.
  • Attend and participate in relevant multi-agency meetings, and prepare detailed reports.
  • Develop excellent relationships with a range of staff across Early Help, Adult and Children’s Services as well as with non-statutory partner agencies.

Further details about the role

As an organisation assessing applicants’ suitability for positions which are included in the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order using criminal record checks processed through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), TEAM Education Trust complies fully with the code of practice and undertakes to treat all applicants for positions fairly. TEAM Education Trust undertakes not to discriminate unfairly against any subject of a criminal record check on the basis of a conviction or other information revealed.

TEAM Education Trust is committed to the fair treatment of its staff and potential staff, regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, responsibilities for dependants, age, physical/mental disability or offending background. We actively promote equality of opportunity for all with the right mix of talent, skills and potential and welcome applications from a wide range of candidates, including those with criminal records.

Having a criminal record will not necessarily bar a person from working in school. This will depend on the nature of the position and the circumstances and background of the offence(s).

At Application stage, you will be asked to declare Criminal Records. At interview, or in a separate discussion, TEAM Education Trust ensures that an open and measured discussion takes place on the subject of any offences or other matter that might be relevant to the position. Failure to reveal information that is directly relevant to the position sought could lead to withdrawal of an offer of employment.

Failure to declare a relevant conviction, caution or pending police action, will disqualify the applicant from appointment or result in summary dismissal if the discrepancy comes to light later.
