Skylarks charity is seeking a SENIOR SEND EDUCATION ADVISER who will be part of a small enthusiastic and growing team supporting children with additional needs and their families. This post will complement our existing services and grow our organisational capacity.
Since launching in April 2020, The SEND Advice Service has supported over 1000 families who need legally-based advice in relation to the education needs of their child or young person with SEND. We are adapting to meet demand. This is an excellent opportunity to develop your skills in a rewarding role and gain a strong sense of achievement.
As the Senior Send Education Adviser, you will provide high-quality information, advice and support to children and young people with SEND aged 0-25 years and their parents and carers in line with the SEN Code of Practice and associated legal framework. You will answer queries from the public and provide support in a range of areas relating to SEND education. Most of our queries are in relation to Education, Health and Care plans (EHCPs)
You will manage a small team and oversee the caseload. Your line manager will provide support, guidance and additional training opportunities.
No two days are the same and this is an interesting and varied role that would suit someone who has a good working knowledge of SEN Legislation and the statutory guidance. You will have relevant experience providing support and giving legally-based advice to people seeking help in relation to EHCPs, SEND education and associated matters.
Ideally, the candidate would have completed all of the IPSEA SEN Law training levels 1-3.
The majority of the service is delivered via phone or via video call appointments across the working week during office hours. We also provide weekly in-person meetings which take place at our centre in Twickenham or occasional outreach centres, including our new centre in Hounslow opening next spring. The role will also involve providing training for parent-carers via F2F workshops and webinars.
You will be required to:
interpret complex information;
be able to explain complex concepts;
record the advice given;
liaise with other key professionals;
compile formal letters;
support parents in meetings with other professionals (usually via video call)
deliver webinars to train parents/guardians on key topics.
Skylarks works in conjunction with a third-party organisation, AMC LTD, on occasion where more specialist advice is needed. Skylarks is looking to increase the knowledge and support offered in-house but will continue to utilise the third party for more complex cases. We also work closely with other education advisers, law firms and statutory services such as SENDIASS, to ensure the best possible outcomes for families and this role will involve building on those relationships.
We currently do not provide support with appeals to the SEND First Tier Tribunal, but we are looking to do so. It would therefore be an advantage if you had some experience in supporting individuals with appeals.

UWC (United World Colleges) is a global family of schools with a powerful difference. With a shared goal of working towards global peace and sustainability, we bring together young people from around the world to study in one of our eighteen schools on four continents. There they don’t just learn how to be great at passing exams. They learn how to communicate across cultural boundaries. They develop the skills to be a changemaker. They design and engage in initiatives that transform their lives and the lives of those around them for the better. And they stay a “UWC-er” for life, becoming part of a global community of 60,000 changemakers transforming the lives of others.
One of the things that makes us the most proud is our network of over 4,000 dedicated volunteers, who make up the UWC national committees in charge of finding and selecting students in more than 150 countries worldwide. Our national committee volunteers - UWC alumni, parents of UWC students or alumni, education professionals and community leaders who believe in UWC’s mission - make it possible to seek out the most promising and diverse students in each country, with over 80% of students selected by UWC national committees receiving a scholarship.
Do you want to support our UWC national committees and make sure many more young people get this life-changing opportunity?
Working with us will inspire and challenge you
Driving a mission to make the UWC experience available to tomorrow’s changemakers, irrespective of their background, beliefs and economic means demands colleagues with passion and dedication, and a talent for transformation. Our students go on to become leaders in politics, NGOs, social enterprises, community movements, charities, and business.

Despite there being many Black students who take economics into further education, economics is far from diverse. From senior positions at banks, to board memberships in think-tanks, Black people are under-represented across the field. This lack of diversity can bring about implications pertinent to Black minority groups. From narrow perspectives to a lack of attention to minority interests; this lack of diversity can feed into decision making in industry, economic research and policy decisions.
Additionally, this lack of visibility (coupled with there being little to no initiatives at higher levels to address this), has meant that there exists no official platform to encourage and support aspiring/current Black professionals in economics and related fields.
We are looking for someone to support the programme coordination for The Black Economist Network (TBEN) and you will get stuck in from day one doing:
- Coordinating and managing the day-to-day activities of TBEN, including organising events, workshops, and webinars to foster networking, knowledge sharing, and community building.

- Assisting in the planning, development, and execution of TBEN's communication strategy, including managing social media accounts, website content, newsletters, and promotional materials.
- Liaising with TBEN members, responding to enquiries, providing support, and ensuring a high level of member engagement and satisfaction.
- Coordinating and overseeing various projects, ensuring adherence to timelines, budgets, and quality standards.
- Collecting and analysing data to measure the impact of TBEN's activities and reporting on key performance indicators.
- Contributing to the continuous improvement of TBEN's processes, operations, and initiatives.
- Be willing to assist with other operational duties as and when required.
The Black Economists Network (TBEN) is an organisation dedicated to providing a platform through which professionals and students of Black African and Caribbean descent in economics can connect, collaborate, share ideas and support each other. We also seek to challenge the lack of diversity within economics related fields by bringing together and raising the profile of black people in economics by working alongside other organisations on their diversity strategies.
