  • Would you like the opportunity to support a child in their hour of need?

Our aim is to ensure all parts of the community receive a high level of education, whether it be through mainstream education, adult education or instances where a young person cannot attend school through medical or physical or emotional and mental health needs.

There is a need for teachers and tutors across the county to provide tuition away from mainstream education and this is where you come in.

There are various roles on offer, listed by their respective services below.

If you believe you can help us make a difference to young people and adults - we want to hear from you.

The Children and Young People's Service brings together education and children’s social care to provide joined up, integrated services for children, young people and their families. The service is also responsible for the provision of adult learning across the county.

The key objectives of the Children and Young People's Service are set out in 'The Young and Yorkshire 2' plan.

The plan covers:

  • Our vision and our approach to all we do for children and young people;
  • The key considerations we will use to test we are truly making a difference;
  • The outcomes we want to achieve for all children and young people; and
  • Our priorities and actions.

You can read more about 'The Young and Yorkshire 2' plan here.

The Children's Trust Board (led by the County Council and involving partners such as the North Yorkshire and York Primary Care Trust, district councils, North Yorkshire Police, North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, and the private and voluntary sector) works to ensure effective local, integrated services are available for all children and young people.

There are six service groups within the Children and Young People's Service:

  • inclusion
  • children's and families
  • strategy and commissioning
  • education and skills
  • strategic resources
  • HR

Roles in the Inclusion Service

The Inclusion Service works in partnership with all schools and settings within North Yorkshire. We aim to ensure that children and young people with special education needs and disabilities and social, emotional and mental health needs achieve in education and are able to live fulfilling lives.

We plan to make certain high quality local provision meets the identified care and educational needs of these children and young people. It aims to strengthen choice, control and influence for parents / carers, children and young people as well as improving educational outcomes.

This may involve children excluded from school where they will receive their education in their home until another provision has been made to get the child back into mainstream school or a young person who due to medical reasons cannot access mainstream education for a period of time.

This can be a challenging but a rewarding role.

If you have experience of working with young people with physical or emotional needs we would like to hear from you!
