Beaumont College is a very special place. We provide highly personalised pathways for special school leavers, and we support them in the journey to become adults, and to live independent and fulfilling lives as far as possible.
Our main college is located on a 7 acre site with a wide range of accommodation for students to live and learn. As part of therapy team you will be working with a wide interdisciplinary team to support students to reach their full potential with their health and wellbeing and prepare for adulthood.

The Beaumont College family work closely together to provide opportunities for special school leavers to prepare for full and busy lives as adults. Empathy, patience and understanding of special educational needs or a willingness and aptitude to learn are key to the post holders appointment.

As an experienced OT you will have the opportunity to work directly with named students over the duration of your employment, providing innovative and creative clinical inventions designed to equip our learners to be their best self. Our learners range from those considered PMLD, with long term health conditions to those who could sustain voluntary or paid employment in the right role. No two days are the same, but the students you work with remain consistent. If you long to make a sustainable different to the opportunities and access for some of our vulnerable young people, this role is for you. Although this is currently a temporary role to cover maternity leave, we are happy to consider applicants seeking a more permanent change.
