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. 

Complete training and qualifications while you work 

From day one, we’ll support you with training. 

During your induction - you’ll have the chance to shadow others to help you gain a full understanding of the needs of the autistic young people with complex needs we support, or how your role supports these young people if you are in a business support position.

During your settling-in period - on-the-job training and support from your colleagues.

Once established in your role – mentoring new employees as they develop their careers at Prior’s Court. Many of our staff become experts in supporting those with autism and are able to progress to more senior roles with us.

If you work directly with young people, we can help you to achieve your HABC Level 3 Diploma for Residential Childcare (England) (RQF)- a qualification that goes with you if you move on to other roles in care. We’ll also provide our specialist autism-specific TEACCH training alongside experts from the University of North Carolina.

To support your personal development, you’ll have access to our online learning platform which offers modules in IT, leadership and management, health and safety, budgeting and finance, communication, and many more.

Supervision happens in several ways, including one-to-one supervision from a senior member of staff, team meetings, and appraisals.

Personal development at Prior’s Court is about allowing access to quality thinking and conversation, allowing our teams to thrive and perform at their best. 

Regular check-in meetings happen between staff and their managers. This is a time to discuss staff members’ goals for the year, their wellbeing, training opportunities and more.
