Health Education England is committed to recruiting the best person for the job, based solely on their ability and individual merit as measured against the criteria for the role; through a process that is fair, open, consistent and free from discrimination. Health Education England supports the values and pledges of the NHS Constitution. 

We are committed to being a diverse and an inclusive employer and will build a culture where all employees are valued, respected and acknowledged. We strive to ensure that no individual receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of their gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, religion or belief, colour, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, pregnancy and maternity, marital or civil partnership status, transgender status, HIV status, social background, trade union membership or non-membership and is placed at a disadvantage by requirements or conditions that cannot be shown to be justifiable.  

HEE have policies and procedures in place to ensure that all applicants and employees are treated fairly and consistently.  We are proud to showcase our Disability Confident Employer accreditation, being an Inclusive Employer, a Stonewall Diversity Champion, our bronze award from the Defence Recognition Scheme, and we are delighted to support Apprenticeships and Tommy’s pregnancy at work scheme.

Project Choice is a supported internship programme that aims to support young adults with learning difficulties, disabilities or autism to become employment ready.

You will work closely with the Area Manager in delivering the project outcomes and maintaining an employment transition rate for students at above 75%. You will play a key role in ensuring the programme meets the needs of the students, employers and regulatory bodies.

The job coach's main duties will include attending work placements with the students to support and develop the learning and embedding of work based tasks. Maintaining weekly detailed individual records for each student that meet inspection requirements, is also a large part of this role.

Due to the bespoke nature of this project we cannot accurately predict the number of hours support the students will need, and the level of support may fluctuate across the academic year. For these reasons we cannot guarantee the number of hours per week offered - but will be a maximum of 37.

These posts are therefore only suited to applicants that do not require guaranteed full time hours and are able to be flexible on the hours worked, and areas worked within a local geographical area.

We are currently looking for candidates in the following areas: Tyneside, Durham, Darlington, Teeside, Sheffield, York, Doncaster and Hampshire.

 A passion for supporting students with SEN to meet their full potential is essential for this role.
