Further information

The Portage Home Visitor will have responsibility for delivering Portage educational programmes to children 0-5 years, with a wide range of disabilities and additional support needs; working collaboratively with parents/carers to achieve positive outcomes for children.

The successful candidate will have professional and practical experience of working with very young children, as well as knowledge of effective strategies used for working with children with complex additional support needs. You will have the ability to work in partnership with families, stakeholder agencies and colleagues.
You will have excellent report-writing skills and an ability to set accurate targets.
You will also have an understanding of the Portage approach, however, formal Portage training will be provided.
An Early Years qualification will be necessary for this role and knowledge and experience of working with children with SEND would be of benefit. This is a varied and challenging role, where each visit will be different. It is essential to have daily use of a car as you will be managing your own caseload, visiting families across the city and transporting equipment.

For an informal discussion or further information please contact: Sarah Bernard, Portage Coordinator on 01733 864720.
