Celsian Education are looking to recruit a number of Residential Support Workers for a number of positions based around Stockport for one of our clients.

Experience working with a number of Special Educational Needs such as:
- Autism
- Social Emotional Mental Health/Emotional Behavioural Difficulties (SEMH/EBD)
- Profound multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD)
- Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD)
- Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD)

Candidates must have relevant experience and can be gained in one of the following ways:
- Working or volunteering at a youth club
- Personal experience of caring for a family member
- Working as a social work assistant
- Paid or voluntary work in a care home, nursery or relevant charity

Residential support Workers should have the ability to get on with people all ages and backgrounds and the ability to build a relationship on trust. The way that you do this is by showing patience and understanding. Mental strength is a must as you must be able to cope with challenging situations (children can become aggressive) and able to adapt quickly to changes.

The children/young adults you will be looking after could have multiple needs and should be able to help them in any situation such as with personal care (please let us know if you are uncomfortable with this, as not all positions require this).

As part of your role you will be responsible for checking childrens/young adults needs, teaching them life skills such as budgeting, paying bills and shopping. You will also be responsible to provide engaging sessions in a safe environment and helping residents to become independent.

If you feel you have all the relevant skills and qualities then please apply to the position, please be aware that relevant qualifications and training such as Team Teach and First Aid will help you with your application. If you wish to gain more information on the position then please contact Adam on (Apply online only).
