Learning & Care Support Workers required!

Vetro Recruitment require Learning Support Workers to join a Special Educational Needs Residential School in Hook- Hampshire. The company provides support, both within the on site residential units and within the school, for 28 children aged 8-19 who have Autism and the most severe and complex learning difficulties.

The basic salary will be between £16,874 - £17,935 depending on experience with an additional £77.50 per sleep in. You will do between 4-6 sleep ins per month. This will equate to a total salary between £21,000 - £23,515 a year.

You will be working within a 180-strong team to provide care and support 52 weeks of the year to up to 30 students with complex learning disabilities. Due to the nature of the disabilities the young people may also have additional needs such as autism, epilepsy, self-injury, aggression and general disruptive behaviours.
