An exciting opportunity has become available with one of our clients based in Gloucester to become part of a team of Residential Support Workers who support a number of young people with learning difficulties within a residential and college setting.
The students benefit from an extensive range of nutritional, therapeutic and medical support within the college setting.
Each core element of the educational cycle is designed to establish active and positive relationships with nature, people and the community through a holistic approach to human development and supports three key stages: overcoming barriers to learning, becoming skilled, and being ready to engage and give back to the community. This is reflected in the college sessions and within the residential provision. This is a great opportunity for anyone wanting a career crossing both care and education.
