Closing date: 17/02/2022
Salary: £12,000 per annum
Employment type: Part-time
Are you imaginative and creative? Do you have experience of working with children and young people who have severe learning disabilities?
You'll join us as an Extended Curriculum Coordinator at our children's home in Wingrave. The young people all have learning disabilities and/or autism, and complex needs. We encourage them to learn new skills, continue their education at school or college, and get out and about in the local community, developing new interests and hobbies.
Your role will be to devise evening, weekend and holiday activities, promoting learning, engagement, interaction and fun.
Activities will be bespoke to each young person, drawing on their individual interests and aptitudes. You'll work with the Registered Manager to ensure that the activities are properly evaluated and monitored.
This role is part time 24 hours a week, with shifts agreed which will cover days, evenings and weekends.
MacIntyre School offers an innovative and challenging curriculum individually tailored to provide each student with the best possible learning opportunities and outcomes. It is focused on developing communication, functional skills and independence in context. Learning takes place throughout the waking day whether at school, in the residential houses or out in the community, where we provide an exciting range of off-site learning activities.
Examples of learning activities include: life skills (using public transport, shopping, cooking and cleaning), physical exercise (climbing, swimming, walking, water sports), work experience (for example on a farm), community access (shops or cafes) or class based activities (music, dance and creative arts).
Awarded “Good” at our recent Ofsted inspection, here are some of the reasons you'll enjoy joining our team:
'Adults never stop wanting the best for the pupils. They see what each pupil might be capable of and work patiently and determinedly towards it. This is a school of aspiration and positivity.''Leaders know their school well and have a deep understanding of the complex context. The strong leadership from senior leaders has already resulted in much success. Staff are extremely proud to work at this school, and rightly so.'

You must have experience of working with children and young people who have learning disabilities. It would be a big advantage if this experience was in a special school or residential setting.
You'll be able to identify and reach appropriate goals, solving problems in a flexible way appropriate for each young person.
It would be helpful if you have a relevant professional qualification or the ability to work towards one.
You must be a driver with your own transport which is insured for business use.
