This is an exciting opportunity for a fully qualified, sensory integration trained Occupational Therapist who wants to develop their career, skills and knowledge in a specialist and Ofsted rated “outstanding” educational setting from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 5.

As an OT with at least 2 years’ experience of working with children, you will have the opportunity to work within an expanding team with clinical responsibility for OT and SI input.

You will enjoy the chance to work within a well-resourced department, (including a resourced Sensory Integration room) with a complex caseload, where intensive therapy with pupils is part of the routine. You will have access to external clinical supervision and a Mentor and take part in regular CPD sessions. If you believe you can help our young people to develop their potential at school, in our residential setting, at home and in their communities and are looking for a fresh challenge, then this role may be just what you are looking for. Feedback from a parent; “Over the past year I have been fortunate to be involved in your (OT) therapy sessions via Zoom and I see immediately the beam on his face and the excitement in his conversation about the time he is spending with you.”
