This role is solely for those who have a passion for young people, are patient and resilient. These young people have come from a range of different backgrounds and environments that have affected and shaped their emotional needs and thought process to life.

To work in this school you must endure patience, have a young person-centred approach, strong communication skills and a non-judgemental approach. These are key components to a successful candidate for this position. The children at this school have extreme challenging behaviour and require firm and consistent support.
