Category: News

We are looking for 2 research officers to join our team at the Rees Centre.

Further details below. Closing date for both posts is 5 Feb 2020.

PART-TIME RESEARCH OFFICER

The Alex Timpson Attachment and Trauma Programme (also known just as the “Timpson Programme”) is a 5-year study led by the Rees Centre and funded by the Alex Timpson Trust. It aims to increase understanding of the role of attachment and trauma in educational outcomes for children – especially those who are in care or vulnerable.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a major national study with far-reaching consequences for policy and practice in schools. In particular, we hope that the Timpson Programme will transform the ways in which the most vulnerable young people are supported to flourish, although our early findings suggest that all young people can benefit from being in a school that is attachment and trauma aware.

Grade 7: £32,236 – £39,609 with a discretionary range to £43,267 p.a. (pro rata)

An emphasis will be placed on the meaning and understanding of specialist and therapeutic foster care placements as well as issues related to the professionalisation of foster carers. The post holder will lead a systematic literature review, work with our Director Lisa Holmes and collaborate with the funders (The Hazel Project) to disseminate findings from the review for policy and practice.
