Paces Sheffield is seeking an Adult Services Conductor.
Description of Paces Sheffield:
Paces Sheffield is a specialist centre and charity for children and adults with neurological conditions. Paces delivers Conductive Education: a holistic package of support that aims to help individuals obtain the greatest level of independence through delivery of a supportive person centred programmes.
Paces meets the physical and cognitive needs of individuals which are often not met holistically elsewhere.
Paces Sheffield was established in 1995; the organisation was born out of the experiences of parenting children with physical disabilities and their related learning difficulties.
Paces School (rated Good by Ofsted in 2019) currently supports 47 children from ages 3-18, the school provides a personalised curriculum based on the National Curriculum through the medium of Conductive Education. The school also operates Paces Outreach Programme that supports 21 children aged 0-4.
Paces school is to move to new premises (Thorncliffe Hall) in September 2022 which will increase our capacity to support more children, helping to meet significant need for SEN school places.
Paces also operates an Adult Day Service and Adult Sessional Service.
Paces Adult Day Service supports young adults to continue life-long learning at Paces. Programmes assist young people to live independently or in supported accommodation.
Paces Sessional Conductive Education Programme supports adults with Parkinson’s and people who have experienced a stroke. We presently support 11 adults and also offer remote sessions through our website and one-to-one Zoom sessions.
Our Family Services Team support Paces parents, family members and carers.
Paces recently moved its Adult Service Provision to Smithy Wood Business Park, increasing its ability to support a higher number of adults in both its Adult Day Service and its Adult Sessional Programme.
We are seeking to grow both services and employing a Conductor is essential to meeting that aim.
The postholder will deliver both day service provision and our sessional programme, it is thought at this time that the post will be split 2.5 days / 2.5 days between both services (but this split may be determined by demand for the service).
The postholder will oversee the production, promotion and delivery of Conductive Education programmes for people with neurological conditions, ensuring that resources are in place and key relationships are established to achieve high quality outcomes that promote self-reliance, nurture independence, and foster a sense of wellbeing.
