Do you want to join a revolution, supporting individuals with Autistic Spectrum Conditions and mental health problems to use assistive technology to fulfil their potential?
Specialist Trainers: Self-Employed, UK-Wide, Competitive Hourly Rate
We are always interested to hear from outstanding, motivated individuals with the skills to support end-users to
- Set-up their Brain in Hand accounts
- identify barriers to achieving their goals
- build strategies to overcome them
- input their strategies and so they are available when they need them the most.
Sessions may be delivered in users’ own home, or at their place of work or education. On occasion you may also train small teams of supporters to use the system and appropriately implement Brain in Hand into their working practices.
Trainers will need to have professional or personal experience of supporting those with mental health difficulties, autism or brain injury and an understanding of the impact these conditions may have on learning, confidence and independence would be very valuable in this role.
An understanding of person-centred working and solution-focused techniques is essential, as well as experience in coaching/training/mentoring individuals. However, most important is the ability to communicate and quickly build rapport with people who might find communication difficult.
A good working knowledge of support and funding available within health/social care/education would be an advantage, but not essential. However, you must be confident working with basic technology – iOS and android phones, downloading apps, accessing the internet on laptops/PCs, using Skype, etc.
This is an open-ended application process and we would currently particularly like to hear from individuals in Scotland, London and the South East. Applicants must have their own transport.
