The Childcare Leaders are responsible for taking a key role in the provision of a service aimed at meeting the needs of children and young people looked after by Positive Care. The Childcare Leaders act as models for the rest of the Team in delivering child care to the children being looked after in the house. While reporting to the Unit Manager / Deputy Manager and following their direction in terms of the child care, they contribute their experience and skills to creatively designing child care packages which meet the needs of the children in the house.
The Childcare Leader acts as the team leader of the shift in which they are working. Together the Childcare Leaders are members of the management team of the team, working with the Unit Manager and Deputy Manager to ensure that the young people living in the house are looked after safely, professionally and in a way which ensures they achieve their maximum potential, in line with Positive Care’s mission and vision statement.
