About the Team
Surrey Online School is part of the School Relationships & Support Service which operates within our Children, Families & Lifelong Learning directorate. We contribute significantly to the council’s commitment to “no one left behind” delivering a child-centred and coordinated approach for keeping children safe and supporting vulnerable learners.

About the Role
The Programme and Learning Coordinator plays a central part in the daily operations of Surrey Online School (SOS), a traded, front-line service. In this dynamic position you will provide high-quality, timely responses to enquiries from schools, council services and families working to deliver solutions for children to access education.
Your role involves developing and securing strong relationships with colleagues and partners in schools and education settings in Surrey, as well as children and families, ensuring that the services we deliver have a tangible impact on better outcomes for children and young people accessing SOS. You may be required to visit students at home or attend meetings in schools as part of the role. You will work closely with our commissioned lesson provider, including leaders, teachers, and SENCOs (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator), to find innovative solutions that inspire and create opportunities for success. You will be the Designated Safeguarding Lead for Surrey Online School, taking lead responsibility for safeguarding and oversight for attendance.
Working alongside colleagues in the wider School Relationships & Support Service teams, including Surrey Education Services, Free School Meal Checking Service and Area Schools Officers, you will play a key role in ensuring the continued delivery of high-quality traded services to schools and education settings.
Who are we looking for?

Someone with strong organisational and problem-solving skills, with the ability to prioritise and work effectively under pressure. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills and the ability to build quality relationships with diverse stakeholders is a must.
