Intermediate Level Apprenticeship
The services in the Hordle area are Deaf services based across 3 Supported living homes, as well as Deaf Outreach covering the whole of Hampshire.
Therefore you will need to already be fluent in British Sigh Language to level 2 or above, working towards that level if BSL is not you first language or willing to learn.
Deaf or Hearing candidates are welcome.
The people we support are Deaf and use British Sign language as their first language. The team use BSL to communicate between themselves as well as the people we support.
The homes are in close proximity to each other so travel between them shouldn’t cause an issue. The outreach work will not be part of your requirements until qualified or deemed to have the appropriate qualities required.
You will be working to support adults who have a learning difficulty and may have some physical disabilities as well as being Deaf, to support them with everyday tasks in the home and to access the community in a safe way to empower them to be an active part of their life choices.
You will be trained on day to day duties, these include, but are not limited to:
Supporting service users with day-to-day tasks such as housework, shopping, cooking, cleaning, managing finances
Personal care may feature. This could mean assisting with using the toilet, bathing and showering.
Ensuring service users are safe and well, whilst enabling choices at all times
Accompanying service users out of the service as they attend hobbies, part time jobs, college, shopping trips, etc
Attending training as required
Working shifts throughout the working week (Monday-Sunday 5 x 8 hour shifts with 30 minute unpaid lunch)
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the nature of the work, please only apply if you are over 18.
