Resilience – We support some of the most vulnerable children in society who have varying degrees of emotional behavioural difficulties, autism, ADHD and associated difficulties so there will be times where your resilience is challenged.
Communication – Communicating with our young people is vital to understand their needs. Good teamwork and communication plays a key part in ensuring important information is relayed to other staff.
Organisation – Strong organisational skills are important to support the class teacher and young people with educational activities
Caring – Our young people require the best care we can offer. If you are a naturally caring and compassionate person, this is the role for you.
