PSHE education subject specialist – supporting police in schools

Full time role available for a contract of one year initially

We are starting an exciting partnership with the Police and are seeking a dynamic and enthusiastic PSHE specialist to lead this work at the PSHE Association.

The Police recognise that a good quality PSHE curriculum covers some of the most pressing issues facing young people today including sex and relationships, mental health, staying safe from online dangers, challenging extremism and radicalisation and preparing for a volatile jobs market.

The Police are keen to identify how they can work most effectively with schools. Getting it right can prevent young people from suffering harm and they want to work with us as the national organisation for PSHE to explore how they can be best involved in supporting school PSHE programmes.  To lead this work, we are looking for a PSHE subject specialist to join our busy team. 

As the national body for PSHE education, we exist to serve our members. We are delighted to be recruiting for a proactive, self-motivated subject specialist to join our London office to help us in this task. We are looking for someone with the drive, initiative and organisational skills to thrive in a busy but friendly charity where we all work hard to ensure that every school pupil gets an education which prepares them for life and work in modern Britain.

The applicant will be expected to work closely with the National Police Chiefs Council Children and Young Person Portfolio lead and take responsibility for developing advice for schools and police, be creative in the design and development of resources and be able to deliver training to officers and teachers.

Please read the attached job description and person specification for more details and to apply by 9am on Monday 19 February
