What is expected of me as a support worker?

Your main role is to keep the children safe. You need to be engaging with them and encourage them to participate. Some of the children need more support than others and you will be responsible for ensuring that all their needs are met, including personal care, feeding and medication. All work is completed as part of a team so there is always someone available to support if needed.
