The Disabled Children’s Team works citywide across Nottingham, to provide support to children and young people (and their families) who are identified with a disability. The team carries out assessments and reviews and then implements care and support according to their assessed needs and in line with current legislation. The Disabled Children’s Team can also deal with Safeguarding concerns and works closely with other practitioners and teams on Child Protection plans where necessary.
Social Workers at Level 3 will work within current legislation, the CityCouncil’s policies and core values, and Departmental policies and procedures. Social Workers at Level 3 are expected to have completed ASYE or equivalent, carry a full and complex caseload, work with minimal supervision and provide guidance to Social Workers level 1-2 and unqualified staff, leading Child Protection investigations.
The main role of a Social Worker at Level 3 is to ensure the delivery of appropriate services to children and their families, according to their assessed needs. This will include assessing the needs of children and their families against the Department’s agreed threshold criteria and in accordance with National Guidance within set timescales, and the creation and implementation of culturally appropriate care plans that demonstrate flexibility and innovative use of resources.
Social Workers at Level 3 will also take part in team duty systems, providing an immediate and responsive service as the need arises in emergency work, and represent the Authority in court routinely, providing reports and acting as the lead witness and providing support to less experienced colleagues and witnesses as required.
• Professional Social Work qualification (CQSW, CSS, Dip SW), ASYE or equivalent, and HCPC Registration;
• Direct experience working with children in a child care setting;
• Knowledge of relevant child care legislation and Government Guidance, as well as understanding of the department’s responsibilities to children who are in care / subject to Child Protection plans;
