We are Bräcke diakoni, one of the biggest non-profit organisations within the healthcare sector in Sweden. Our aim is to make society more humane. Since we started our cause almost a 100 years ago, we’ve understood that both heart and mind need to be involved in order to take really good care of people – and that the magic happens in the daily encounters between our employees and the people we are here to help. We operate about forty units in areas such as healthcare and rehabilitation centres, elderly care and different kinds of activities and homes for children with disabilities. Some units are large, some smaller – but all are equally important. Find out more by visiting www.brackediakoni.se
Stegen is a preschool for children between the ages of 1 and 6 who have special needs and disabilities. All the children here at Stegen have some kind of physical disability, combined with other disabilities such as hearing and/or visual impairment, decreased cognitive functions and communicative difficulties.
At Stegen, we practice conductive education. The aim is to offer the children an environment that is fun, safe and educational, regardless of his/her disabilities and needs. We believe in all children’s ability to develop and learn and use reachable goals as a means to allow the children to succeed and grow with our help. Next door to Stegen is our preschool Spåret, which is open to all children, with or without disabilities. The close proximity of the preschools allow us to integrate the children from Stegen and Spåret so they can learn and develop together. Learn more about what we do at www.brackediakoni.se/stegen.
Are you our new conductor?
Since one of our conductors is leaving us, we are now looking for her replacement. You will be a part of an environment where we together with the children meet and conquer great challenges but also share the joy in the children’s achievements.
What will your job consist of?
You will work with motor skills, communication, perception of reality, ADL’s and creativity, based on the preschool curriculum Lpfö 18. Don’t know the curriculum? Don’t worry. You’ll have several colleagues who will help you get the hang of it.
With us, you will be a part of an engaging and wonderful team of colleagues with different professions. You will be responsible or partly responsible for the educational planning and documentation – in other words to plan, lead, evaluate and document activities, based on the guidelines in the curriculum and/or conductive education together with you colleagues.
Who are we looking for?
We want you to have a degree in conductive education as well as experience in working with children.
If you speak Swedish or have experience in alternative ways of communication (TAKK etc.) that’s a plus, but not an absolute requirement.
It is very important to us that you are driven, positive, work well with others and always see the children as individuals. We trust you to always find the children’s strengths, and see possibilities instead of difficulties. Our key words are: I want, I can, I dare.
