Preston North End Community and Education Trust [PNECET] is recruiting a Mental Health Transformation Officer to support the transition of children moving from primary school to secondary school across Lancashire and South Cumbria.
The Trust will be working as a collective across the Lancashire and South Cumbria footprint to develop an innovative programme that will support Year 6 primary school children through their transition from primary to secondary school over the period of a year.
As Mental Health Transformation Officer (MHTO), the successful candidate will work within up to five primary schools within the city of Preston and will help to revolutionise the way we think, talk and act about mental health, providing an early intervention and prevention service for children, schools and families.
The aim of this two-year programme is to increase resilience and give pupils the necessary tools to thrive both within their education and lives.
The Mental Health Transformation Officer will work with the schools using a flexible approach to provide whole-class interventions at the earliest opportunity; providing education on coping strategies and self-management while also identifying those requiring one-to-one support, predominately pupils who are currently accessing Mental Health support services, or are at higher risk of requiring support.
The programme will aim to reduce the number of individuals and the demand on local CAMHS services which currently have large waiting lists.
