Are you a parent or carer of a child with autism or a professional with experience in supporting families who have a child with autism and/or special educational needs?

We believe that in order to make an informed choice for their child, parents need sensible, informative and supportive advice.

We are looking for a skilled individual who can offer empathetic support to families who enquire about a prospective placement at either Eagle House School. Initial contact will be via the Group website, telephone or email and involve talking to parents, arranging school visits, organising new parent open days as well as sign posting parents to relevant services. The parent liaison officer will offer support throughout the application process and will work directly with the Group Admissions Manager to ensure that parents receive a friendly, supportive and seemless service.

We are keen to find someone who is energetic, open minded, non-judgemental and has the right attitude to support parents, wherever they are in their very individual journey with their child. You will need to have excellent verbal, literacy and written communication skills, together with experience in ICT including MS Office. Experience and knowledge of the systems that support children with SEN are therefore essential as is a knowledge and understanding of part 3 of the Children and Families Act 2014.

You will need to be able to provide proactive support to parents from initial enquiry, right through to their child’s admission maintaining accurate information on our School Information Management System.

As our Parent Liaison Officer you will:

 Use your initiative when responding to enquires from parents to proactively support them

 Engage parents positively by setting up, marketing and maintaining Open Days and visits, and by providing information, training and workshop sessions etc.

 Demonstrate a keen interest in child development and want to help the team grow public awareness of our service and its impact.

 Have experience of working with schools and families, in formal and informal situations.

 Have knowledge of relevant legislation, guidelines, procedures and policies.

 Have knowledge of relevant services and activity structures for young people, ideally including local contacts
