We employ more than 500 people from a diverse range of backgrounds to work directly supporting autistic young people within our education and residential care settings, and in behind-the-scenes roles.

Most of our staff are based in our Learning and Wellbeing teams. They work directly with the young people we support to ensure they have the support to achieve our ambitions for them - to be healthy, happy, as independent as possible and able to access the world of work. This is why 100% of parents agree that Prior's Court staff are caring with their child - Parent Survey - 2023/24

The different skills, experiences and backgrounds our people bring to their roles create a workforce as diverse and individual as the young people we support. We actively seek and embrace differences in thinking, experience, ethnicity, age, gender, faith, personalities and styles.

We strive for an inclusive environment where employees feel safe, engaged and supported to make a difference.

An organisation is only as good as its people. That’s why Prior’s Court is committed to investing in our staff members, providing a package of training and support so they can become experts in their field and excel in their roles.
