Teens+ (Transitional Education Extra Needs Support) provide a service for young people with complex communication needs, autism & its complexities, and behaviours that challenge traditional services. Our primary goal is to help individuals achieve their full potential through gentle, lifelong learning. Our Transitional Education service is designed to assist young adults who are not quite ready to take the step into post school education, work or to a new home. We also provide a befriending service out with the normal hours of our service operation which is tailor made to each student’s needs.
We are now seeking an individual to join the Senior Management Team, ensuring that we provide high-quality education and social care to our students. Reporting to the CEO, the role will be responsible for developing and delivering the services in line with our person-centred education ethos. The Head of Service will be the Registered Manager and will work closely with our new Chief Executive Officer to develop and deliver new projects that meet our aspirations for growth.
You will be a pro-active leader with a track record in managing Multi-Disciplinary Teams. You will be values oriented with strong stakeholder management skills and in-depth knowledge of social care and the Scottish regulatory framework. The ideal candidate will also have experience of leading teams through change in a positive and constructive manner. This is an exciting time to join TEENS+ as we embark on our next stages of development.
