Outwood Academy Portland places students at the centre of everything it does, with a focus on creating a culture of success, a positive climate for learning, and increased student outcomes whilst developing their social and emotional resilience.
We are seeking to recruit a female* Healthcare Assistant to assist in the domestic care and general welfare of specific pupils in respect of personal hygiene programmes and at meal times, using specialist equipment where necessary, including assisting with physio. As the post is to support students in the academy with physical needs it is temporary whilst they are on roll at the academy.
As our ideal candidate, you will be passionate about working in education and working with young people, and dedicated to building a strong relationship with students with medical needs, priding yourself on providing the highest level of care and support. A proactive individual, you will display a warm and nurturing approach with students and be comfortable assisting with their personal care. This role is restricted to female applicants only as it involves working on a one to one basis with a female student and assisting with personal care.
To be successful, you must have good interpersonal and communication skills and be able to manage your time effectively. Having the ability to maintain confidentially at all times is also essential. You will need to be extremely well organised, literate, numerate, and have excellent communication skills - both written and verbal.
