About Us:


Children’s Services in Westminster City Council is a world of extraordinary stories. Where courageous and inspiring professionals bring everything to their work.

Sometimes this even includes heartbreak. Shofa is a shining example. Shofa’s brother suffered with his mental health and died tragically young. She uses his memory as motivation to give Westminster Youth Council members the opportunity to have a voice and get involved in decision making.

This passion resulted in her innovation: The Westminster Youth Market. Here local teenagers learn about entrepreneurship and develop their personal skills. This is an inclusive platform where everyone’s contribution and abilities are celebrated. 

Inspired by a promising life cut short, Shofa believes without vision there is no direction, and every young person should be supported to realise their dreams.

Please view the extraordinary story of Shofa’s Market here.

The Role:

As a Bi Borough PEP and Projects Strategic Lead, you can make your own powerful contribution. Join us, and combine the activities of two virtual schools into a bi-borough virtual school that gives vulnerable young people the support they need, and sets new benchmarks for the area.

It's a unique opportunity to work with a blank page. To develop supportive structures, processes and practices that will – and then put your ideas into action.

In practice, you’ll look at Pupil Premium Plus Grant Schools allocations and tracking, as well as quality assurance and the Personal Education Plan. 

That means collaborating closely with the Virtual School Headteacher, and other schools and professional. We’ll also look for you to maximise a Pupil Premium budget approach £500,000. 

Everything you do will be aimed at putting measures in place that improve efficiency and quality. The end result will be ever-better attendance and access to education.

About You:

RQF level 6-qualified (or with an equivalent degree or experience), you’ll have an impressive education or social care background, and understand the nuances of educational progress and attainment. 

Equally, you’ll be comfortable working with senior leaders in schools and other professionals in a fast-paced environment, and bring a real passion for breaking down the barriers that impact on the education of children in care. 

The Council and its partners are committed to achieving diverse shortlists for all vacancies at Band 4 or above to support our desire to increase the number of staff from underrepresented groups in our workforce.
