Some of our young people are very active but at the same time are vulnerable if left on their own. Some young people can behave in a way that is challenging to others and part of our role is to teach young people safer and more effective ways of communicating their needs, however a level of challenge still exists; this can be physical or a reluctance to engage. For these reasons this role requires someone who is physically fit. MacIntyre Academies will, where possible, look to make reasonable adjustments to comply with the Equality Act 2010.

We can offer up to 34 hours per week; 39 weeks per year (Term-Time only). We can also offer a variety of hours through relief shifts.
