Support Worker - Residential SEN School - Andover
Academics are recruiting for experienced Support Workers to start ASAP to work in an SEN Residential School in the Andover area. This is a full-time, temporary to permanent role working shifts, for example from 7.30am-3pm and 3pm-10.30pm, 38 and 52 week a year contracts available. This will involve some weekend work. This is suitable for candidates looking to gain a permanent contract so must be committed long term.
The job involves enabling young people to develop and make progress by providing physical, emotional and nurturing support. The position involves working as part of a team to maintain a stable, happy and caring environment that makes the health, safety, care and welfare of young people a priority.
To be successful in this role you will be a strong team player, confident and motivated and well organised. Patience and commitment are essential, but above all you'll be someone with a genuine desire to help others. Childcare qualifications are desirable, but full training is provided.
You will be required to predominantly work in the residential homes which are on the same site as the school. Experience of working in a school or care setting with children with SEN would be an advantage but not essential for the role.
If this position is of interest to you, you are available full-time including weekends and you are able to commute to the Andover area for work, please apply using the link provided.
As part of the vetting checks to clear you for work, you must either have a Child Workforce related DBS which is registered to the DBS Update Service, or be prepared to pay for a new one at the cost of £50.60.
