Priory Education and Children’s Services is a leading company in the UK offering independent behavioural care for commissioners across the UK. With over 100 high quality schools, colleges and homes we focus on making a real and lasting difference for everyone we support.
Farleigh FE College is a residential Specialist College of Further Education for young people with Asperger’s Syndrome and associated disorders. We provide our learners opportunities to fulfil their academic potential by studying in mainstream FE Colleges and having the benefit of a broad range of courses, including A Levels.
Education is continued within the Farleigh residential setting with opportunities for sessions on literacy, numeracy and one to one sessions on independent living skills.
As a Night Waking Support Worker you will be a key member of our team, providing high standards of person-centred support and care to our service users. Through a creative and caring approach, you will build good relationships with both service users and their families, supporting service users in the planning of goals and in living as independently as possible. Both personal care and participation in activities are key tasks for the role, so energy and initiative is vital; experience however is not essential, providing you have a willingness to learn and the compassion and patience needed to support.
Supporting students during the evening/night you will also carry out a number of admin and domestic tasks. You will ensure that the residences are secure throughout the hours of 10pm – 8am. You will be alert and observant with regards to the well being of the learners and aware of the specific needs of learners with Asperger’s Syndrome. You will work as a member of the team, sharing and recording information as appropriate.
From education to hospitals, care homes and secure facilities, the Priory Group of Companies offers individually tailored, multidisciplinary treatment programmes for those with complex educational needs or requiring acute, long-term and respite mental healthcare.
The integrated strength of each service provides a seamless transition for the individual as they progress between higher and lower dependency care and across services. This unique approach ensures that every individual has the opportunity to achieve the best possible outcomes and quality of life with the Priory Group.
As 85% of our services are publicly funded and delivered in partnership with commissioners, our teams work with commissioning bodies across the country to provide transparent pricing models and evidence-based care programmes.
