We're creating several exciting opportunities for graduate trainees to join us at the forefront of pioneering social care - and to get an MSc in Applied Behaviour Analysis along the way.

Position: Graduate Trainee Expert Practitioner
Location: Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire
Contract type: Full Time, Permanent
Salary: c£20k per annum, rising to c£24k dependent on performance and achieving qualification, plus benefits (including relocation if applicable)

Closing date: 30 April 2018
Assessment date: 14 May 2018

About the role:

We're changing the way care is designed. Radically.

Are you a newly qualified graduate or a graduate with experience? We'd like to hear from you.

As an established charity dedicated to empowering people with learning disabilities to live the best life possible,
we're now embarking on an innovative, new project that will challenge the way support is designed and delivered.

Over the last 18 months, we've been researching, measuring and evidencing how we can improve outcomes for the people we support. In September, with the backing of the funding authority, we launched the Hft Expert Practitioner Model in a transition service for young adults with very complex needs and challenging behaviour.
This pioneering project promises to revolutionise the way support services are delivered; success here would mean radical innovation in how care and support is delivered across the nation.

For you, it's a unique opportunity to embark on a progressive career in the social care sector and gain a post graduate diploma, which will start this year, fully funded by Hft. You will also have the opportunity to buddy-up' with the first cohort of Graduate Trainee Expert Practitioners and gain the valuable experience in the role before you start your academic study.

As one of 6 Graduate Trainee Expert Practitioners, you'll creatively support adults with complex needs to meaningfully engage in their local community and live the best life possible, by balancing hands-on, daily support activities with the application of academic theory. That includes gaining an in-depth understanding of why a person might exhibit challenging behaviour and developing outcomes-based ways of measuring behavioural change.

You'll also be supported in completing a two-year training programme starting in September 2018, that combines on-the-job and distance learning to achieve a post graduate diploma in Applied Behaviour Analysis. Along the way, you'll be tasked with completing self-directed study across a range of subjects, from syndromes and diagnosis to business and management skills.

About you:

Whether you're an undergraduate looking for a post-graduate opportunity or first career step, or an experienced, degree qualified Support Worker, you'll be comfortable both providing hands on personal care and continuing your studies. More importantly, you'll be keen to develop your support skills in preparation for the academic study which will help develop your ideas into action and get a buzz from supporting people to develop and grow. And, most importantly, you'll be passionate about and committed to championing change in care that delivers benefits for all.

NO AGENCIES PLEASE.

You may have experience of the following: Graduate Trainee Expert Practitioner, Graduate Expert Practitioner, Trainee Expert Practitioner, Trainee Service Manager, Service Manager, Practitioner Manager, Practice Manager, Registered Manager, Social Care Manager, Care Manager, Charity, Charities, Third Sector, NFP, Not for Profit etc.
