Trailblazer Vacancies

Liverpool has been successful in gaining ‘Trailblazer’ status to take forward the government vision and commitment to developing integrated mental health teams in schools.

Building on the already successful ‘whole school approach’ to mental health and wellbeing, Liverpool is developing new Mental Health Support Teams to work with primary, secondary, AEPs, Further Education and special schools across the city to increase access to mental health interventions for children and young people aged 5-18 years.

As a result of this exciting opportunity, a number of vacancies are now available.

Young Person’s Advisory Service (YPAS) is seeking to recruit three clinical administrators to support the smooth running of the new Mental Health Support Teams.

YPAS is an independent Liverpool charity delivering counselling, advice, information and guidance to children aged 5-15 years and young people aged 16-25 years.

YPAS is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and families and expects all staff to share in this commitment.
