Student Welfare Manager & DDSL job summary

We are looking for a Student Welfare Manager to be the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead in school and to support the DSL in being able to implement the safeguarding policy effectively.  The successful candidate will support in all aspects of pastoral care including supporting our most vulnerable students.

The role forms part of a supportive team including Heads of Phase, Tutors, School Counsellor, School Nurse, Pastoral Assistants, Pastoral Administrator and Attendance Officer.

This is a high profile role within the school reporting to the Strategic Leadership Team and would suit someone who has previously worked in a school setting or similar environment.

Education has the power to change lives, communities and society for the better. At RLT we believe that we can achieve more for our pupils, trainees, staff and communities by working together rather than alone. Schools in RLT are united by a common belief in the benefits of working together, and by our commitment to shared principles.

OUR VISION is for our schools and SCITT to improve rapidly, continuously and sustainably: to be better faster together.

Our employees benefit from a wide variety of support including extensive  continuing professional learning and development opportunities, wellbeing and staff networks and access to Defined Benefit Pension Schemes (TPS and LGPS) for all staff.
