Tribunal support service volunteer
Our tribunal support service volunteers provide individual casework support for tribunal appeals on behalf of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities. Our tribunal support service line volunteers work remotely and support cases in their local area.
Could this be you?
Whatever skills you already have you will be able to put them to use in a completely new environment. A genuine concern for helping get the right education for children with special education needs and disabilities is essential. You’ll need to keep things confidential and have the time to support families and represent them at tribunal. You will need to be reliable, willing to get involved and communicate effectively.
For more details about the role, please see the attached role profile.
What can you expect from us?
The opportunity for training and development on a personal level. Before volunteering with the tribunal support service you’ll need to complete our comprehensive three stage training. You’ll then have access to our ongoing training and online library of resources.
You’ll be assigned a supervisor for the entire time you’re volunteering with IPSEA. They’ll be on hand to offer feedback about your performance and support your development in the role.
Finally, you’ll have the opportunity to make a real difference to young people.
