High aspirations? Looking for an exciting new challenge? Ready to make a real difference?
Due to expansion Priory Lyndhurst are seeking to recruit a Learning Support Assistant for our inpatient CAMHS unit based within Blandford Forum.
All of the young people aged 12-18 have mental health needs and therefore they need support to be able to access education and manage expectations.
We are ideally looking to have the right candidate in place for an immediate start.
Priory Blandford CAMHS education unit is a satellite provision of Priory Lyndhurst. The unit provides education to young people aged 12-
18 whilst they are inpatients of the Priory Blandford CAMHS provision. We offer quality education for young people who are unable to access their own school for medical or psychological reasons.
Young people join us following a referral supported by medical evidence. The Priory CAMHS education unit within Blandford Forum will work closely with young people's mainstream schools and is committed to creating links to promote educational inclusion.
Our role is to support, nurture, educate and enable young people to return to their home school when, and if, it is appropriate.
Each young person has a personalised timetable which includes access to both core and foundation subjects. We also offer a range of accreditation and a therapeutic curriculum.
Individual timetables are designed to meet young people's academic needs, whilst taking account of health and emotional factors.
We work in consultation with families and carers along with medical and nursing staff. The school operates within a multi-
disciplinary framework; working closely with a range of professionals including consultant doctors, mental health professionals, occupational therapists, speech therapists, fitness instructors and other agencies.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all our employees to share in this commitment.
