Social Worker Based at an Alternative Provision

Social Work Grade I – K, with spinal points 29-42, depending on experience.

London East AP (LEAP) is a successful, high-achieving KS3, KS4 and Post-16 alternative provision school located in Tower Hamlets.

We are seeking to appoint an experienced social worker who has a particular passion for vulnerable young people who have been permanently excluded from school.

These young people often are in complex and cooccurring circumstances. This post will require a social worker who has an in-depth understanding and passion for multisystemic and multiagency working.

LEAP is part of a national pilot programme by the Department of Education, the Alternative Provision Specialist Taskforce and is seeking to appoint a social worker who will be part of this team whose ultimate goal is to reduce youth violence in one of the most deprived parts of the country. This role is initially funded for 2 years.

The role will require collaboration with partners both within LEAP and the AP Specialist workforce team. This post would also benefit from a social care colleague that has a thorough understanding of the contextual safeguarding needs in the local area as well as the central role education has in the mitigation of these risks. We are looking for a compassionate and dedicated school based social worker to assist in addressing the social care needs of our students. The school social worker's responsibilities include providing information to students, parents, and school staff.

They will also be working in collaboration with colleagues and partner agencies to address issues such as school attendance, abuse, child criminal exploitation, child sexual exploitation, the impacts of deprivation and peer on peer abuse.

If you are interested and have 2 years or more post qualifying experience please complete the short application form and forward your CV, detailing why you would like to be considered, relevant experience and what you would bring to the role.


Deadline for submission of applications Friday, 21st January 2022.
