South Tyneside Council are one of 75 Local Authorities who have been awarded grant funding to implement, develop and sustain a Family Hubs Network working with families of children aged 0-19 and up to 25 with SEND.  We want all families in South Tyneside to have access to the services and the support they need within easy reach of their home, so we’re making sure our families are at the heart of everything we do. 
We’re looking to recruit an Early Years Practitioner to support the development of this large scale, fast moving, exciting programme which is about giving families the best possible support in their community by bringing services together and empowering families to take advantage of a whole new range of services. 
The Family Hubs programme in South Tyneside calls for the creation of transformation roles and experts in the field of family services to drive forward new ways of working and meet the extensive requirements. 
We are seeking applicants who will bring a can-do approach, with a positive energy and strengths based aspirational outlook for the families and communities they are responsible for serving.
The postholder will undertake the delivery of Home Learning interventions through direct parent/carer support and role modelling practice with children, ensuring high quality practice and provision to enable children to reach their optimum potential.
The role will provide universal, prevention and intervention support, activities and programmes to children, parents/carers and families in line with the Family Hub Home Learning offer. 
The postholder will facilitate and co-facilitate packages of innovative and evidence-based group work and individual programmes to improve outcomes for children.
A sound understanding of child development, ability to engage families, and experience of providing group programmes is required, but most important is the enthusiasm to assure our services are the very best they can be. Postholders will bring experience of working in partnership with parents and multi-agency working.
For full details of the positions, please see the attached job description and person specification.
