Two Portage Home Visitors required to support pre-school children with SEND and their families. These postholders will work in partnership with parents to model an educational programme of learning and development in the home, and offer support through a keyworking role using a family centred approach.

This is a great opportunity to work as a member of the Torbay Portage Service (and the wider SEND Services) delivering the ‘Portage model’ of support to pre-school children with complex disabilities/additional needs, and their families/carers.

The Home Visitor would be expected to have completed the National Portage Association Portage Workshop and hold a relevant child development qualification. Experience around working with children with disabilities/additional needs in a home based setting would be advantageous.

You will have an individual caseload of pre-school children, providing regular home visits using a teaching programme which follows ‘structured teaching’, ‘child led play’ and ‘family focus’ elements of the Portage Model.

Experience of working within a multi-agency framework would be beneficial. Portage Home Visitors have close links with a variety of agencies and services including Heath Therapy teams, Child development services, Early Year Settings, the SEND department and the Educational Psychology Service.

Torbay Council is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS check will be required for this role.

For further information please contact Mandy Astin, Portage Team Lead on 01803 208271.
