Job Details:

An opportunity has become available to join our Emotional Wellbeing Service at National Star.  We are looking for a Behaviour Support Practitioner to support learners across our Ullenwood campus.

This role requires a dynamic, creative and proactive person who is able to work autonomously in managing their own caseload and who works collaboratively with other professionals in developing individualised behaviour support plans, delivering evidence-based interventions and providing professional advice, training and information to colleagues, families and carers.

The successful candidate will have a sound working knowledge and experience of using Functional Assessment and the Positive Behaviour Support approach to support young people and adults in improving their quality of life, consequently reducing the frequency and/or intensity of behaviour that challenges.

The post holder will be expected to work flexibly to meet the requirements of the role, as directed by the Team Leader.

The role is full time, equivalent to 37 hours per week over 52 weeks, with these hours being weighted to reflect the higher intensity of workload during term times; 40 hours per week (over 5 days) during term time and 28 hours per week (over 4 days) during holidays.
