Designated Safeguarding Lead (Maternity cover - with the strong possibility of becoming a permanent post)
The Complete Works are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and self-motivated Designated Safeguarding Lead for maternity cover, with the strong possibility of becoming a permanent post.
TCW is an innovative alternative education provider that offers a unique and alternative way of delivering education. Our child-centred approach to learning allows students to feel empowered and respected. We recognise every student is different and tailor our education experience to try and meet those different needs and strengths. We offer education for key stage 1-4 in a number of small centres and/or in homes/libraries on a one-to-one basis. Many of our students have missed significant periods of education, have SEN and may have been permanently excluded from their mainstream schools. Under the banner of ‘Learning Creatively, Achieving Academically’ TCW recruit our staff from a variety of backgrounds, all of whom are committed to helping these vulnerable young people with the skills that they have, and are keen to develop as teachers to further the impact they can make on our students.
Safeguarding children in our school is everyone’s responsibility, but this role is pivotal in ensuring that we keep all our students and staff safe.
All safeguarding concerns are reported to the DSL in a timely manner and the DSL advises, coordinates and records the actions to be taken. The nature of the young people that TCW works with, coupled with the remote teaching that takes place, makes this a demanding, but rewarding role and the DSL a key and highly respected member of staff.
The successful candidate will need to be highly committed, detail oriented and thorough with a high level of emotional intelligence and resilience.
TCW is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An Enhanced DBS clearance is required for this post.
