Residential Care Worker

Job description

Are you an experienced Residential Child Care Worker? Have you worked with a range of complex additional needs? Teaching Personnel could have the ideal role for you!

I am working closely with a client School that is based in North York, Acomb that caters for Primary aged children with a range of additional and complex Special Educational Needs. The School has 15 classes, with between 6 and 8 students in the class, alongside a main class teacher and 3-4 additional Support Staff. The School provides an education for students that have a vast range of SEN, which includes Autism, Non-Verbal, PMLD, SLD and Physical Disabilities. The School need staff to work at short notice for day to day, medium and long term placements, so being local to the area is key.

Working with Teaching Personnel will offer you the flexibility to choose when and how long you agree to working placements for. Ideally you will have a minimum of 2 days availability each week. As the ideal candidate, you should have recent working experience in a position as either an SEN Teaching Assistant or as a Child Care Worker or Practitioner. Personality wise, the School looks for staff that are out-going, confident in their ability to communicate and build trusting relationships with the children and are able to get stuck into the different activities that the School offers. Although the students are up to 11 years old, most of the classes follow a tailored lesson plan, according to the EYFS curriculum.

If you have undertaken any CPD courses, such as Moving and Handling, Team Teach or PILLARS, Autism Awareness or Safeguarding, be sure to mention this on your CV!
