The Sheiling Ringwood is an independent, residential special school and college for students with severe and moderate learning difficulties and disabilities. We offer day and residential care within a beautiful environment where staff - whatever their job role - have the opportunity to make a real and positive difference. In addition to positions based at our main site in Ringwood, working with children and young adults who are residential or day students, we also have posts supporting our young adults who are in our community-based supported living known as Sheiling Living located in Wimborne. Sheiling Living staff will support our young adults to attend the college and help them to develop broader life skills to enable them to live more independently within the local community.
Each year we provide a number of volunteer placements commencing at the end of August each year and lasting for a full 12 months. This provides an opportunity for successful candidates to live on site working alongside, and learning from, our highly experienced contracted staff, to develop the educational, social and personal skills of our students who have complex learning disabilities and special education needs.
