Support children and young people through supporting panel members – become a Panel Practice Advisor.

The Children's Hearings System is Scotland's unique care and justice system for children and young people in need of care, protection and support.

The system is unique because it is unsalaried, lay tribunal members - the panel members - who are the decision makers at Children's Hearings. This is done by considering the needs, circumstances and best interests of the children and young people before them and making decisions accordingly.

Panel Practice Advisors (PPAs) play a critical role within Area Support Teams (ASTs) - those responsible for the delivery and administration of the Children's Hearings System at a local level across Scotland. PPA's are responsible for selecting and recommending panel members for appointment to the National Convener. They also regularly observe panel member practice within children's hearings and contribute to practice development within their AST area.

Orkney AST is looking to recruit one PPA so if you have good assessment, observation, interviewing and communication skills and are able to regularly give your time to the Children's Hearings System, please send completed application forms to Annette Feeney annette.feeney@orkney.gov.uk.
