The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families supports distressed children and their families through innovative therapeutic practice and research, training and promoting awareness of mental health issues. In April 2019, the Centre opened its new Centre of Excellence located in King’s Cross.
The Centre values diversity and aims to have a workforce that reflects this. We encourage applications from all sections of the community.
Our Schools Division has rapidly expanded over the past few years. In the Training and National Programmes Department, we have increased the number of Department for Education (DfE) and Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) funded programmes and our Schools in Mind network, which shares clinical and academic expertise regarding the mental health and wellbeing issues that affect schools, has grown to over 10,000 members.
There is a growing demand for schools and colleges to be trained in a range of issues related to the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people. The Centre is currently delivering government-funded training programmes and also delivers an expert training programme for a range of school professionals nationwide.
The Schools Engagement Trainer will deliver a portfolio of Centre trainings aimed at education professionals. This will largely include the national delivery of the Mental Health and Schools and Colleges Link Programme (The Link Programme).
The Link Programme, funded by the DfE, brings together mental health leads in schools and colleges and Children and Young People’s Mental Health Services (CYPMHS) to embed long term collaboration and integrated working. The programme comprises two workshops delivered at least six weeks apart to mental health and school and college professionals with the aim to better improve mental health and resilience in children and young people. We will be delivering the programme to all schools and colleges across England over the next four years, running up to four workshops per day during term time.
We are actively seeking to recruit a Schools Engagement Trainer to deliver training virtually, and when safe to do so, the post will require travel to various locations across England to deliver the workshops.
The post-holder will be home-based, which is not location-specific and can be anywhere in the country. On occasion and when required, the post-holder may be required to visit the Anna Freud Centre, 4-8 Rodney Street, London N1 9JH or our Northern Hub (central Manchester office).
Please email Recruitment@annafreud.org if you require assistance or experience difficulties in applying. Please note all our posts require candidates to have the Right to Work in the UK at the time of applying and we do not hold a sponsorship licence.
Fixed-term, 12 months in the first instance.
