About the role
As a Life Skills Practitioner, you will work with individual students, or small groups of students to supervise their wellbeing and welfare whilst supporting and accessing learning. The college offers a curriculum that supports their communication, sensory, co-ordination, social and emotional development through a variety of motivating sessions. Our aim is to equip our students with a skillset to lead as independent a life as possible; things often taken for granted such as making a cup of tea, or something more complicated such as finding employment. We offer tailored programmes, which are designed to meet the individual needs of our students, as well as promoting self- confidence and maximising potential.
If you join us and enjoy the role we can always discuss any permanent roles we have available should you decide to make this your career. We will invest to support you in gaining qualifications and you’d also receive access to all our employed benefits which includes things such as pension, discounts for 100s of retailers, cycle to work scheme, salary finance (which offers advances on earned pay) and more. Lots of our existing team started as a Support Worker and have now progressed into senior roles.
Who are we looking for?
This role is ideal for those who have ad hoc availability to work maybe some days, nights, evenings or weekends but can’t currently commit to a permanent role with a fixed working pattern. No previous industry experience is required as we will provide full training and support which starts with a fantastic induction and continues when you are in post.
- For this role we can consider applicants with no previous experience, providing you have a passion for care, an understanding of autism and are now keen to begin a new career where you will work towards the Adult Education Teaching qualification (AET) and Care Certificate (funded by ourselves).
- This role is also ideal for those who have worked within the care / further education or school settings previously and are now interested in applying those skills within a day centre environment.
- You will be a confident communicator capable of interacting with students, parents and other healthcare professionals. You will be proactive and will be capable of adapting your approach to the situations at hand.
