Although few careers require more responsibility than working in residential childcare, very few careers are as rewarding. It is an immense privilege to be able to play a role in transforming the lives of disadvantaged children.
Looking after children is much more than a job. It is an opportunity to use your skills, personality and experiences to make a difference to both individual children and society as a whole. What greater reward is there?
But for those who have never worked in residential childcare before, working in a children’s home might seem a little daunting. You might love children and want to work with them but wonder whether you have the right experience or qualifications for this role.
You might wonder what happens on a daily basis in a children’s home, or what the working hours and benefits are and whether this would fit in with your lifestyle. Or you might simply wonder if you have what it takes to do this important and life-changing career.
Well now there is no need to wonder! Over the coming weeks, we are going to be showcasing, through our website and our social media, what it is like to work in an AWW children’s home and to support our fantastic young people.
As well as information about career prospects, qualifications, training and benefits, we will be sharing the real experiences and activities of our teams and what daily life is like at AWW. We hope that this will give you some insight into this fulfilling role and enable you to see how you could contribute to transforming our children’s lives.
