Are you an organised self-starter, who can multi-task and prioritise work?
The Learner’s Single Point of Access (L-SPA) has been created as part of Surrey’s vision and drive to ensure that all our children have access to a good quality education and receive help and support in a timely way.
When there is a concern about the development and/or learning needs of a child/young person, the L-SPA team can help families and professionals to navigate to services, support and specialist advice quickly so that children and young people can be supported faster and earlier.
The L-SPA team has three elements, the Contact Centre, the Triage Team and the Multi-Disciplinary Team, that all work closely together.
These teams work collectively to support professionals and parents/carers to the right advice/service to meet the needs of a child/young person at the earliest opportunity. The Triage team receive initial contacts from parents/carers and professionals (e.g. education, health) and undertake the initial analysis of requirements. The multi-disciplinary team is made up of several education and other professionals, such as an Educational Psychologist, Specialist Teacher, Speech and Language Therapist and health colleagues who work together to consider queries such as Requests for Support and Requests for EHC Needs Assessment and work closely with the SEND teams across Surrey.
