Job Advert Role Description

Priory Education and Children’s Services is a leading company in the UK offering independent behavioural care for commissioners across the UK. With over 100 high quality schools, colleges and homes we focus on making a real and lasting difference for everyone we support.

Set in a semi-rural location within four acres of beautifully mature grounds.

Part of the Priory’s specialist Education Service, Miles Lodge Children's  home is a registered home for up to eleven young people aged 7 to 19 who have complex needs which may include autistic spectrum disorders (ASD) and complex associated difficulties. This home is open 52 weeks per year.

We believe Miles Lodge Children’s Home is a very special home for children and young people where daily living experiences and activities are meaningful and memorable and are designed to meet the needs of individual children in areas that are personal to them.

Children may also have challenging behaviour as a result of their communication difficulties and lack of social understanding.

Within our safe, structured and predictable environment, pupils will develop the skills needed to live as independently as possible, so that they are able to enjoy their lives and make real life choices as they reach adulthood. 

 

Are you ready to make a real and lasting difference? Would you like to be part of a team committed to ensuring that our children and young people achieve their full potential?

As a Shift Leader you will lead your assigned shift taking responsibility for a small team of staff and a group of young people to ensure that the children and young people in your care are safe, healthy and able to make a positive contribution, realising their full potential through enjoyment, achievement and economic wellbeing. You will work in the children's home but will also spend time in school supporting during the academic day. This is a whole year role and you must be prepared to work on a shift system including weekend shifts.

What we’d like from you:

  -        The ability to support and motivate a team of professional                        

            support workers

•           Emotional resilience

•           Flexibility, resourcefulness

•           A strong 'can do' attitude

•           Highly developed organisational skills

•           Effective communication skills

•           Previous experience in a special needs environment/school

            would be desirable but not essential as full training will be  

            given.

 If you would like to find out more or if you have specific questions to ask before making an application please contact Dianne Price, School Business Manager on 07795 636193. 

If you would like to apply, please complete the application form fully as we cannot short list from a C.V.
