The Aurora Group

The Aurora Group is an innovative provider of education and care for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.

Due to our continued expansion; we’re currently looking for a number of Support Workers in Westbury Park, Bristol where our Aurora Hyde Lodge living and learning environment; supports young adults with severe and complex learning difficulties.

Key Responsibilities:

The key to this role will be ensuring that all our young adults receive a high standard of care whilst living and learning in a safe, clean and homely environment where they are encouraged to be as active as they can be in their local community; encouraged to try new things and do the things they really want to do.

You will play a key role in facilitating a wide range of fun activities throughout the day and proactively contribute to the individual support plans we have in place for each individual that continually promotes choice and independence.

Naturally; you’ll understand what ‘good care’ looks like, be able to articulate and promote this; ensuring that any problems with the care/safety/environment are reported and escalated if necessary.

With full training and continued support you will take responsibility for the care of their clothes, bedrooms, personal belongings and ensure that all their medical needs are met at all times including the administering and recording of prescribed medication.

Experience:

Ultimately we are looking for people with a passion to positively change the lives of the young people that we work with.

If you do not already have a Level 2 Diploma for adults but believe this role is right for you, then we will provide the support (and cover the costs) for you to achieve this; and will continue to support your development throughout your career with us.

Successful candidates are likely to demonstrate:

  • Willingness to work towards achieving Level 2 Diploma or equivalent for Adults (funded by us).
  • Experience working within special needs and/or support/care roles (either in a paid or personal environment) – highly desirable but not essential.
  • A robust, positive and creative approach in meeting the needs of young adults.
  • Good interpersonal, communication and team working skills.
  • Able to work within the parameters of the physical demands of the job role.
  • Be able to work within a rota pattern (which includes evenings, weekends and some unsocial hours).
