Residential Support Worker - Newport
Axcis are currently recruiting for Residential Support Workers for various roles across South Wales - especially in Newport.
We are an education agency that specialise in special educational needs and disabilities and have work in mainstream, SEND schools, alternative provisions, care homes and PRU's. Job lengths vary depending on what the provision need from one day, to a few days, a few weeks to a whole term long.
We particularly want to talk to people who have worked with children or adults who have had SEND, and are unfazed by challenging behaviour and can remain calm under pressure. The ideal candidate will be patient, understanding and resilient. Those trained in Team Teach or MAPA will be at an advantage. Some of the children/adults we support have ADHD, Attachment disorders, SEMH, challenging behaviour and ODD, PMLD, SPLD - plus more.
If you are interested in transitioning to teaching assistant work, we work with a number of schools in the Newport and surrounding areas area who are looking for people experienced in challenging behaviour and emotional behavioural disorders.
We offer a fantastic refer a friend scheme, great rates of pay and regular work. The hours vary from 6 hour, 8 hour, 12 hour shifts and a mixture of mornings, afternoons and evenings across the 7 days. You will be offered training to support you through your own professional development by a confident and professional consultant. Many of our consultants have worked in the education or health and social care sector before; I myself was a support worker for eight years working with people with learning disabilities and mental health issues.
To work for us you will need to meet for a one hour registration meeting, you will need a DBS on the update service, if you don't have one on the update service ewe will need to get a new one which will cost £46 and we will also need a minimum of two references.
