You'll possess a deep care for their welfare and possess the skills to assess and address their complex needs. Working collaboratively, you'll engage respectfully and curiously to empower them to reach their potential while ensuring their safety. Collaborating with professionals and organisations, you'll utilise evidence-based approaches, exercising judgment and regularly evaluating the effectiveness of your methods. In a residential care role, you'll develop and implement placement plans to support children's well-being and potential. Alternatively, in a community-focused role, you'll emphasise early intervention and safeguarding, working across diverse settings and agencies to enhance outcomes for children, young people, and families, fostering independence and overcoming barriers. Through reflective practice and high-quality interventions, your work will make a tangible difference in their lives.
