Overview

Bucks County Council are on journey towards excellence and we want passionate people to join us in shaping the future for children. We believe all children have the potential for greatness and are looking for dedicated Educational Psychologist's to help our children achieve their full potential.

Now is a great time to join our newly formed Integrated SEN Service. You will be involved in helping shape the future of our newly formed service and ensuring that children's EHCP'S are well formulated and reflective of each child's needs.

About us

We have recently restructured our SEN, Educational Psychology and Special Teaching Service so that we can better meet increasing demands and to enable us to make a real difference to children and young people in Buckinghamshire.

At Bucks CC we consistently outperform our neighbouring counties in educational results, and our KS4 results recently exceeded the national results for disadvantaged pupils.

As a result, at the end of March 2019, 91.5% of pupils in Buckinghamshire attended a Good or Outstanding school compared to the national average of 85%. Our schools across the county continue to perform well which is very reassuring as this provides the children and young people in Buckinghamshire with the best opportunity to flourish.

About the role

We recognise the high demand for your skills the salary we currently offer includes a 6% market factor enhancement. The value of the market factor enhancement is reviewed each year. Additionally, you will receive a Golden Hello payment of GBP2000 (paid pro rata for part time hours).

We reward high performance and our Bucks CC Contribution Based Pay scheme means that your salary progression is linked to your end of year performance rating. In addition, those who demonstrate exceeding or outstanding performance may also be eligible for a bonus payment.

Regular CPD is provided to ensure that our Educational Psychologist's continue to meet high standards of practice and can demonstrate that they meet criteria for continued HCPC registration.

Our Educational Psychology Service operates from offices based in Aylesbury, Amersham and High Wycombe. We can also offer a relocation package of up to GBP8,000 (where applicable).

As well as the above, our generous reward package also includes:

  • New car lease scheme
  • 25 days Annual leave rising to 30 after 5 years employment
  • Annual leave purchase scheme
  • Local Government Pension Scheme with an employer contribution of 26%

About you

We are seeking qualified and experienced Educational Psychologists, as well as those newly qualified with experience of working with children in a range of contexts, including but not limited to teaching, youth work, and counselling, to help us fill a range of roles.

We are looking for reflective practitioners who can bring a broad range of psychological skills and thinking to bear on the problems we face professionally. You will be a good team player and make regular contributions to service development.

Naturally you will be a highly competent communicator able to demonstrate good interpersonal skills and be self-directed with excellent time-management skills.

You will be HCPC registered or be in the process of obtaining your registration.
