Prior's Court was set up by Founding Patron Dame Stephanie Shirley, whose vision of a centre of excellence for children with autism became reality with the opening of Prior's Court School in 1999. We have since grown to support around 80 young people with autism aged between 5-25 years with the opening of Prior's Court Young Adult Provision in 2011.

We offer a range of specialist services within a residential children’s home, school and adult provision to support children and young people severely challenged by their autism. 


In conjunction with the Registered Manager and Care Management Team (CMT), you will be responsible for the overall management of the health and wellbeing of the young people, the staff team, and the environment they live in.

You will be expected to manage a Home to the highest professional standards and to ensure that the provision of care meets the fundamental standards as outlined by CQC and Ofsted and to be fully aware of all relevant statutory legislation and requirements, and ensure compliance within their home.

To apply for this role you will need to have NVQ Level 3 in Health and Social Care (or equivalent), Leadership and Management in Care Services Level 4 or Health and Social Care Diploma Level 5 (or willing to work towards this) together with experience of working in a social care setting and proven team working skills. Experience of working with individuals with learning disabilities is essential and a knowledge of autism would be beneficial. Good knowledge of National Standards of Care, excellent communication and time management skills as well as proven experience in managing and developing a staff team are essential to this role.


Our care teams are key to the progress and achievements of young people at Prior’s Court and we aim to make them feel valued and supported with training in autism along with knowledge and skills they need to do a great job and develop their careers. Find out more about the benefits we offer.
