There was a culture of blame and upper management were reactionary instead of proactive. I left because of an unsafe environment and management not putting proper procedures in place during emergencies. Ofsted have now shut down the site.
Pros
Free lunch

The organisation was in a period of great change during my time there. I saw lots of positive changes happening and the CEO and Executive Board were focusing heavily on improving the culture of the organisation.

Job Culture
There is NO work life balance 12 hour shifts 4 on 4 off! means you have hardly any weekends off and no enhancements for working weekends or bank holidays! No support from SLT or management, inexperienced staff running shifts, no breaks and no respite from 1:1 students, sometimes spending a 12 hour shift with one student. Unsafe practices with medication, students spending all day in their rooms without safety checks. Many students with extreme mental health problems not getting the right support. Location is remote and unsuitable for the residential students. Support staff are expected to do excessive amounts of paperwork with not enough time to complete it properly yet get chastised if not completed. Poor communication between teams and management. Most staff on shift are agency and the staff turnover is huge, staff moral is low. Working here drains you mentally and makes you question your values. Management make you feel unvalued unappreciated. AVOID if you value your own mental health.

No support from Seniors, Managers or Principal.
Anything goes wrong, Support Workers get the blame. The College says they promote independence yet the students do nothing. All they want is to be taken out for take aways. If students do not get their own way they smash up the College. Staff turnover is massive, not to staff not coping with the job, it’s due to having no support from managers.

High staff turnover especially in Lancashire.
