We have an exciting opportunity for two full time Speech and Language Therapist to join our dynamic team. We have opportunities for the successful candidates to work in a Community Clinic setting and/or Mainstream School setting and / or Early Years Complex Needs, offering a range of clinical development. The CWP Speech and Language Therapy Service has a number of therapists with specialist knowledge to support generalist therapists and who provide second opinions as required. Regular supervision is provided by more senior staff and team meetings are used to share knowledge. Evidence based practise is encouraged. The Care Aims philosophy for delivering intervention is used throughout the service and we are also using TOMS (Therapy Outcome Measures). We have experienced SALTA’s and SALTAPs who undertake programmes under the direction of Speech and Language Therapists. The schools in the area work closely with the team and training the children’s workforce is a key priority for the service. EMIS, an electronic patient information system, is used within the service which enables the department to operate a shared caseload.

The service is split into three teams ; ‘Mainstream and Colleges’, ‘Community Clinic and Early Years’ and ‘Complex Needs and Dysphagia’. The makeup of sessions in the post will determine which team the post will sit under. The post will provide the successful candidates with experience of working with a range of ages in various settings. The caseload will include children who present with varying speech, language and communication needs and will provide a basis to develop skills in a wide range of clinical areas.
