Consultant Practitioner (Team Development and Learning) 
Ref: 57 & 58
£31,754 - £35,430 p.a. plus an additional £2,150 p. a. Market payment
37 hrs per week

This specialist role will personally support newly qualified and less experienced staff through training, mentoring and coaching so that they develop the confidence and competence to deliver quality social work to very vulnerable children.

During the last year our fostering service has separated into two teams; one for support of foster carer’s and the other for recruitment. This has enabled us to increase our numbers of foster carer’s and reduce our need to use agency carer’s. The team has now been formed for a year and we require a Senior Practitioner to add to the current management within the team.
