About The Role

Fixed Term for 1 Year
Hours: Both part time and full time considered
Days: Mon - Fri
Location: Llanelli

We welcome applications from bilingual (Welsh/English) speakers.

As part of our growth and development in Wales we are delighted to be moving into new areas and setting up cluster based working across a number of schools.

In Llanelli we are setting up one cluster which will contain five primary schools.  We are seeking Mental Health Practitioners / Counsellors to work within the cluster.

What does this look like?

We are open to the cluster of five schools being supported by either one full time practitioner or two part time practitioners.  Two part time practitioners could mean either two 2.5 day posts or one 3 day post and one 2 day post.

About Place2Be

Place2Be is the leading children's mental health charity providing in-school support and professional development to improve the emotional wellbeing of children, young people, families, teachers and school staff.

The charity currently provides an embedded mental health service in almost 400 UK primary and secondary schools supporting a school community of around 225,000 children and young people.

Our teams provide a range of services in our partner schools to build resilience early in life through a range of universal and targeted  interventions:

  • therapeutic and psychoeducational group work
  • brief structured one to one work
  • self-referral drop in sessions for students
  • digital platforms in partnership with external providers
  • online and face to face parenting training and advice
  • consultation with school staff

All of these support a child’s ability to engage in school life and also support the mental health of the whole school community.  Our work, focused on early intervention, is part of the ‘comprehensive CAMHS system’.

What difference will I make, working as a Mental Health Practitioner/Counsellor at Place2Be? - Watch to see how you can change the lives of primary and secondary school children all across the UK 

 
 

Through our professional development programme, we are training c1200 Counsellors on Placement each year who build their mental health and counselling skills and experience through practice in our partner schools. We also provide a range of professional development programmes on mental health and wellbeing for school leaders, teachers and other professionals who work with children and young people, so we can help to build ‘mentally healthy’ schools and communities where all children can thrive and flourish. 

We continue to pilot, trial and explore new ways in which we can develop our practice as well as share learning, expertise and findings from the robust evidence and evaluation we gather. HRH The Duchess of Cambridge is our Royal Patron and Place2Be is one of the founding charity partners of Heads Together. We also work collaboratively with a range of charities and expert organisations to leverage best-in-class knowledge and expertise to inform, develop and improve outcomes for the children, families and schools we support.

We ask our staff team to share our core values of perseverance, integrity, compassion and creativity, and to have the skills and patience to support some of the UK’s most vulnerable children and families.
