Groundwork London is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all members of the community. We are particularly seeking applicants from under-represented backgrounds including but not exclusive to, males, transgender people and those from an Asian background.


Join our ambitious and passionate team which provides a range of vital therapeutic interventions across primary and secondary schools in Southwark. The Mental Health Support Team (MHST) works to improve children, young people and their families’ mental health and wellbeing through a range of early intervention and prevention programmes across the diverse borough of Southwark.


Groundwork’s MHST is part of a national, government-funded, pioneering programme transforming mental health and wellbeing provision for children and young people via early intervention. The service was launched in Southwark in January 2022 and currently works across 20 schools, with plans to expand over the academic year. The MHST is dynamic, flexible and diverse, representing the community which we serve. We have been awarded funding to continue our expansion, and are therefore seeking four passionate, experienced and skilled individuals to train as Educational Mental Health Practitioners (EMHPs) and work within our service.


The EMHP role is a unique paid training opportunity, where candidates study a one-year Diploma in Education Mental Health Practice at King’s College London (Denmark Hill campus), and work alongside existing MHST staff to deliver evidence-based individual low-intensity CBT interventions with children, young people and their parents/carers. EMHPs also deliver one-off workshops within schools and in the community, group work, remote courses and staff training.


 Please contact us if you have:


  • Experience working with children and young people
  • Experience or interest in mental health and wellbeing.
  •  Knowledge and understanding of the barriers children and families face when accessing support
  • An awareness of working to safeguard children, including relevant training
  • The ability to work to a high academic standard expected at postgraduate level

Applicants will need to be ready to start work in early January 2024 and posts cannot be offered to candidates unless they can guarantee this start date.

Applicants will need to have submitted a successful application form and be accepted on the Diploma in Education Mental Health Practice at King’s College London. Please visit https://apply.kcl.ac.uk/ to apply 

The application to KCL must be completed at the same time as your application to the post with Groundwork. Please review the supporting documents for more details about the course.
