Are you interested in working with children with SEND? This setting in Almondsbury is looking for a profession, caring, enthusiastic support worker to work with children aged 8 to 18 with complex needs and physical disabilities such as Downs, autism (ASD) profound and multiple learning difficulties. The young people stay at the centre for the day or for a longer time for respite.
The young people here do sometimes present challenging behaviour although this is very rare. The centre does not use a positive handling method as they have not needed to in the past. for this role, you would be required and expected to do everything you can to ensure the needs of the young people are met and they enjoy their break at the centre as much as possible. It is essential that you are a caring person with an interest in SEND and enjoy working (and playing) with young people.
You do not necessarily need any previous experience for this role, but you will need to be motivated and understanding of SENDs. The hours for this role are on a rota basis to include some weekends and night shifts. The hours are 36 per week and the salary is between £15550 and £17230 depending on experience
