Approximately 17% of children that suffer from autism are suspended from school. Can you imagine being suspended from school for something you have no control over?


If you believe that all young people should grow up in a positive environment with the necessary support to succeed then read on.


Apply today for an opportunity to work as a support worker for young people aged 7 - 20 in a residential/educational facility. The service users supported typically have diagnoses of Asperger's or associated learning difficulties on the autistic spectrum.


Give a young person the freedom to flourish and grow with your support and guidance.


Benefits:
* Competitive Salary
* Both residential and educational
* A national organisation that supports vulnerable young people with a number of needs and requirements from ASD to mental health and learning disabilities.
* Training, development and progression (great for psychology graduates)
* Company benefits
* DBS paid for by the company
* Dental and travel insurance
* Last but not least an extremely rewarding role helping enhance the lives of young people.

Responsibilities:

This is a fantastic opportunity to help a young person to flourish at a pivotal moment in their life.
* Helping young people to make positive choices in every aspect of their lives
* Supporting young people with learning difficulties and autism
* Supporting vulnerable children to build healthy relationships
* Documenting challenging behaviour and understanding triggers
* Working long shifts that do include weekends
* Safeguarding and protecting vulnerable young people
* Providing stability and building trust with the children and young people
* Being open to take part in a number of activities

Requirements:
