“No act of Kindness, however small, is wasted”

Career Development

Here at Prosperity Children’s Services, we pride ourselves on staff development and growth within the company. We believe that developing staff by focusing on improving skills, capabilities, understanding of therapeutic care and empowering our people is the best way to provide excellent nurture and care to the children in our care.  Our Training and Development Manager develops and leads the delivery of learning and development initiatives, face to face, within teams and remotely, to promote continuous learning, skill enhancement, and career advancement and to help build confidence and personal growth.

We have an established career pathway within our Residential Services.  Our staff also have the opportunity to move within the three different divisions at Prosperity, depending on qualifications and experience.  If you have had little or no experience in children’s residential services, once you have passed your probation, we will enrol you on our Level 3 qualification in Children’s Residential Care.  This helps equip you for your role and also gives you a lifelong qualification to help enhance your career.  You can then progress through our roles to potentially become a senior residential support worker, deputy manager or even a Registered Home Manager over time.

As we are a growing company, the opportunities to progress are plentiful, as are the opportunities to care for, nurture and help shape the future of our children and young people.
