SPEECH AND LANGUAGE THERAPY

PAEDIATRIC SPECIALIST SPEECH AND LANGUAGE THERAPIST

Band 6

1.0 WTE fixed term till 30-07-2018

We are seeking to appoint to a Specialist Speech and Language Therapy post within the West Lothian area to support the opportunities provided by an increased Service Level Agreement with Education as a result of Pupil Equity Funding.

The post holder will be responsible for providing support within mainstream primaries and nurseries working closely with Education staff to train and support or will backfill for existing members of staff who take on these roles. Family support work will also be covered in these roles.

Applicants should have recent experience of working in a paediatric setting and of being proactive and supportive of innovative initiatives. They should have experience in delivering training to Education staff. As the posts are funded by Education applicants should aim to take annual leave during school holidays.

The service is well established and there are strong links with the local schools and nurseries. The SLT service places great importance on working with families and on inter-disciplinary working.

This post offers an opportunity to work within an innovative enthusiastic and supportive team of therapists who are committed to providing a high quality service for all children.

Applicants must be registered with HPC
