This exciting opportunity has arisen within our mainstream primary schools service based at Netley Campus, Camden (near Euston/Warren street stations)

Camden Language and Communication Service is a unique jointly commissioned and co-located team of speech and language therapists and specialist language and communication teachers. All Camden mainstream primary schools have access to this team who provide support at universal, targeted and specialist levels. Speech and language therapists are sited with their educational colleagues to enable continuity and coordinated support for children, families and schools, as well as resources, CPD, knowledge and skill sharing for staff. In addition some of our therapists work across primary and into our SLT Service for Young People aged 11+, and so this opportunity may also arise once you are in post. Our service for young people supports children in secondary schools and a range of other settings.

CLCS are looking for keen and dynamic therapists interested in developing your clinical skills whilst working in education. These post holders will autonomously manage a small caseload of schools, providing assessment/diagnosis, direct and indirect, face to face and virtual therapy as required, as well as training to teachers, teaching assistants and parents. You will be working with children who have a wide range of SLCN, many of whom have an EHCP.

If you have the interest and some experience of working with children in educational mainstream settings, this will offer you invaluable professional development opportunities. Interest, enthusiasm, confidence and flexibility will be essential and in return we can offer structured support, supervision, service management, and professional development, as well as a large team of friendly and helpful colleagues both within your team and right across the Whittington Health SLT Services.

Camden is a central London borough that has a culturally and socially diverse population, including vulnerable populations that require additional support and understanding. It is a vibrant place to work, with access to great amenities, transport links and links with the Speech and Language Therapy Departments at City University and University College London.

 We offer:

      • A team of highly skilled, friendly, and supportive colleagues
      • A well-developed support, supervision and appraisal structure, in a service with strong professional leadership
      • Opportunities for continuing professional development
      • A full induction programme
      • Season ticket loan scheme
