Our client provides a range of social care, special education, community support and consultancy services in the North West of England. The charity is one of the North West’s largest providers of residential homes for children from short-term emergency care to long-term placements. Their fostering service provides family placements in the North West and neighbouring regions.

They provide some of the leading specialist education services in the North West region, operating a range of special schools, a further education college and centres supporting those who cannot attend mainstream schools. In addition, they offer a wide range of training, consultancy and support services for parents and carers.

They are now looking to appoint a Special Educational Needs Transport Escort to supervise pupils being transported by mini from home to school. This role is for 10 hours per week – two hours per morning in term time only.

As a Special Educational Needs Transport Escort, you must ensure the pupils behave in a suitable manner and not distract the driver whilst the vehicle is in motion. Supervising pupils at all times, you will ensure pupils are safely seated, bags are safely stored and that on arrival at school, pupils are handed over to a member of school staff.

Previous experience is not essential – all that we ask is that you are a highly patient individual, have excellent customer service skills and a good understanding of the individual needs of the young people.

Those who are First Aid qualified are highly desirable as are those who are trained in Safeguarding vulnerable children.
