Are you an educator with SEN experience? Could you help transform the lives of children and young people with complex needs?

At our residential children's home in St Albans, we provide 24 x 7 care and support for up to five children and young people, aged 11 to 18. The home provides a residential therapeutic model for young people with autism and/or learning disabilities, and behaviour that challenges, who may also have a mental health condition.

Alongside this, the home offers a full extended curriculum designed to complement and reinforce the learning programme delivered at the young person’s school or college. This is where you come in!

You will plan, organise, monitor and evaluate after school/college, weekend and holiday activities for children and young people at the home, and support individual programmes that promote learning, engagement, interaction and fun.
