Working with Education & Children's Services

RSW roles - Your chance to support young people with special and challenging needs
As a Residential Support Worker, you’ll make a lasting difference for young people with complex needs. We are seeking caring and committed individuals to provide individually tailored care to young people with Emotional & Behavioural Difficulties (EBD) and challenging behaviours. Based in one of our schools or residential homes for young people, you’ll build strong relationships and help to give them their best chance in life. You’ll need a caring nature, but you don’t necessarily need professional care experience. What matters most is your commitment and initiative in making change happen for young people whose behaviour will pose challenges.

 

Priory Education and Children's Services provide specialist education and care for young people from 5 to 25 years old. Today, we have 26 schools and colleges designed to meet the needs of children with:

  •  challenging emotional and behavioural difficulties
  •  autistic spectrum disorders including Asperger’s syndrome
  •  complex and severe learning difficulties
  •  specific learning difficulties associated with dyslexia

In addition, we have a small fostering service for up to 60 people, all of whom are educated in local authority schools.

Our goal is clear: to provide the highest quality of education and care in a safe and positive environment that enables every child to achieve the best possible outcomes. That involves listening to every young person in our school and involving them in their own education, care and transition plans.

More than that, we work hard to equip the young people in our care with the skills to live independently and also offer them stimulating and engaging activities that contribute to their physical and mental health.

Whether you are a teacher, a therapist, a child care worker, a support worker or registered manager, you could find the perfect role as part of our growing team. As long as you enjoy working with young people and want to be part of a team that is setting standards of innovation in their education and care, we can promise you an excellent career environment.
