Further information:

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced and capable psychologist or practitioner (clinical/educational psychology or other professional background, e.g. RCN, BCBA etc) to deliver DNA-V coaching services for children and staff in schools in South Gloucestershire. This is a two-year project funded as part of the South West NHSI Vanguard Programme and the post being offered is for a 12 month period.

The main duties are to coach and support SEND children and young people (CYP) at risk of exclusion to learn and use key psychological wellbeing skills. This work can be direct with the CYP, their school staff team and/or their family.  The primary model will be DNA-V coaching, but other evidence-based interventions will also be used, all within the context of a trauma-informed approach.

As part of this role you will use a range of function based assessment and formulation processes, psychometrics assessments, clinical interviews and direct observations in order to create intervention plans with the CYP and their network. You will also assess and support the management of complex risks for the CYP.

This post, and the establishment of the team within which it will sit, represents a unique and exciting opportunity to build a scientifically-grounded and innovative psychological service from the ground up, in order to genuinely promote educational and wider prosperity for young people including – but not limited to – those with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).  In addition, the innovative nature of the project extends into its evaluation, which includes active research links with psychology and education departments at Bangor University, University of Warwick and Bath University. 

You will participate in the delivery and development of the service as a member of the multi-disciplinary team, to include involvement in clinical activity, audit and evaluation of the service, outcome evaluation and governance.

You will be part of Enable Trust, the host, working in partnership with Pathways Learning Centre on this project.

South-West NHSE Vanguard Programme

In October 2020, South West Health & Justice, NHS England & Improvement (SW H&J NHSE/I) selected Bristol North Somerset and South Gloucestershire CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) to deliver the Framework for Integrated Care, as the vanguard site for the Southwest.  The Framework for Integrated Care, and the services it will underpin, has been developed as a response to the NHS Long Term Plan (LTP) commitment to provide additional support for the most vulnerable children and young people (CYP) with complex needs across multiple domains between the ages of 0-18.
