LEVEL 4 CHILDREN, YOUNG PEOPLE AND FAMILIES PRACTITIONER – RESIDENTIAL CARE
Residential care practitioners work with children, young people and families, including carers, to achieve positive and sustainable change in their lives.
Residential care practitioners are higly skilled in recognising and assessing the complex needs that children, young people and families often present.
Apprentices will work alongside other professionals and organisations to share the responsibility for improving outcomes. Each piece of work with a child or family will be different and you will exercise judgement on a range of evidence-based approaches to inform your practice. You will regularly evaluate the effectiveness of your methods and actions. Regular supervision with an experienced practitioner will encourage reflection on your practice. At the end of the apprenticeship the high quality of your practice will be making a real difference to those that you work with.
You could be working in a number of settings e.g. a children’s home, a residential special school or a secure children’s home. The children might be living on their own or in a larger group. You will take the lead in developing and delivering the child’s placement plan and will work with the child to support their health, education, social and day to day needs, playing a significant role in helping them to thrive and fulfil their potential
