Prior’s Court offers education and residential care for young people aged five to twenty-five whose autism needs mean they require a lifetime of support. For these young people life can be extremely challenging. But with the right support, amazing things can be achieved.
student with staffWe believe in supporting each young person according to their specific needs so we ensure staff working with each young person gets to know them well and builds a trusting and healthy relationship.

From day one as a staff member, we will support you through training, whether that be helping you through your Level 3 Diploma in Childcare; providing specialist autism specific TEACCH training alongside experts from the University of North Carolina; or through shadowing and working in different areas of the School or Young Adult Provision to gain a full understanding of the needs of our students.

Our young people rely on support staff, teaching staff and therapy teams to guide them through their waking day; to make progress with learning; the management of behaviours and personal accomplishments; as well as supporting them throughout the night. It can be challenging but hugely rewarding when the young person in your care achieves something for the first time that others take for granted. 

Without the dedication of all at Prior's Court my son would not be where is today - being more able to cope with what is a very confusing world and for that we will always be grateful.

Hear from the mum of one of our students about the impact Prior's Court has had on her family:

You don’t necessarily need any qualifications or previous work experience because we provide comprehensive training to be sure of achieving the best results for our young people. It doesn’t matter about your background, age or knowledge of autism. What’s really important are your values and attitude towards working with people who need care, education and support. 

If you would like to embark on a rewarding career where you can and will make a difference to the lives of young people severely affected by autism, please take a look at our current vacancies or get in touch to find out more about the roles available.
