Supporting the young people within the residential setting to develop and become independent whilst watching them learn new skills, is an incredibly REWARDING role for the right candidate who is PASSIONATE and enjoys working hands-on.

The setting's craft curriculum stems from the cultural history of the area, with such sessions as weaving and felting, green woodwork, animal husbandry, and metalwork in the Iron Age Forge.


Benefits:

  • 33 days annual leave, raising to 38 with service, company pension scheme plus a great benefits package
  • The opportunity to become qualified in practical skills activities such as pottery and felting!
  • Comprehensive Training Package including scheduled ongoing face-to-face training and CPD planning
  • Plenty of opportunities to maximise earnings and career development
  • Fully funded NVQ Level 3 in Adults Health and Social Care
  • Perk Box and Cycle to Work Scheme
  • Enhanced disclosure cost coverage


Responsibilities of the support worker role:

  • To encourage the young people to do activities and take responsibility for their own lives depending on their age.
  • To keep the homely, friendly culture and environment of the homes.
  • To be able to deal with challenging behaviours when needed.
  • Protect children and young people from risks to their health and welfare.
  • Provide support for the children and young people in the home and promote their independence and well-being.
  • Maintain a safe environment for the young people.
  • Ensuring the safety of the students and maintaining an up-to-date knowledge of the individual's; care plan, guidelines, reward system, and preferred method of communication.
  • Supporting taxing behaviour safely and sympathetically.


Requirements:

  • Experience working as an adult support worker in a similar setting is desirable.
  • NVQ or QCF level 3 in Adult Social Care
  • A passion for supporting young people with a holistic approach.
