Jobs at BILD


Positive Behaviour Support Consultants

Join our team to help us enable excellent support, champion the rights and improve the quality of life of people with disabilities.

Professor Gerry Simon set up the British Institute of Learning Disabilities – now known as BILD – in 1971 because he was convinced there could be better support in the community for people with disabilities. We’ve been championing the rights of people with disabilities ever since.

BILD uses its knowledge and experience to turn research into practice, solve problems and improve support. In working with government departments, local authorities, heath trusts, service providers and mainstream organisations, our aim is to improve the quality of life of people with disabilities.

Our vision is a society where people with disabilities are equal citizens, able to enjoy the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. We endorse ethical evidence based approaches that promote human rights, inclusion in society and equality of opportunities.

BILD has been a leader in the advancement of Positive Behaviour Support (PBS), both nationally and internationally, and is currently working with more than 100 organisations – helping them to increase the quality of life for the people they support by adopting a PBS framework.

The Centre for the Advancement of Positive Behaviour Support (CAPBS) facilitates organisational and workforce development programmes and consultancy. CAPBS consultants work alongside organisations to enable them to continually improve PBS practice and reduce the use of restrictive practices.

The role

We are looking for highly motivated, articulate and responsive consultants who can work for a minimum of five days per year. We are looking for consultants from a range of backgrounds in social care, health and education who can support the work of CAPBS in either of the following two ways. We are particularly interested in consultants who have backgrounds in schools or mental health.

1. Delivering level one PBS workforce development programmes to a range of service types and teams. 2. Facilitating level two programmes (Coaches Programmes) and consultancy support. The Coaches Programme is a highly regarded programme and change agent and needs consultants who are excellent facilitators and also understand organisational implementation of PBS.

For both roles you will need to demonstrate to us that you understand the underpinning value base of Positive Behaviour Support as well as having a psychological understanding of behaviour.

If you are interested and would enjoy either of these opportunities for professional development, please download further information:

 

Email Tom Evans if you would like to have a chat about either role at: t.evans@bild.org.uk

Send your CV and a covering letter to g.pardoe@bild.org.uk explaining why you would be a great addition to our team.

No agencies.

Deadline for applications: Friday 11 August

Interviews will be held in Birmingham on Tuesday 22 August



BILD Physical Intervention Training Accreditation Scheme Assessors

Join our team to help us enable excellent support, champion the rights and improve the quality of life of people with disabilities.

Professor Gerry Simon set up the British Institute of Learning Disabilities – now known as BILD – in 1971 because he was convinced there could be better support in the community for people with disabilities. We’ve been championing the rights of people with disabilities ever since. 

BILD uses its knowledge and experience to turn research into practice, solve problems and improve support. In working with government departments, local authorities, heath trusts, service providers and mainstream organisations, our aim is to improve the quality of life of people with disabilities. 

Our vision is a society where people with disabilities are equal citizens, able to enjoy the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. We endorse ethical evidence based approaches that promote human rights, inclusion in society and equality of opportunities. 

The BILD Physical Intervention Training Accreditation Scheme (PITAS) has long been seen as an indicator of quality and good practice for those providing training in physical intervention techniques and for those commissioning such training into their service. For further information, download the information sheet. 

The role

The role of the assessor is to undertake a range of assessments as directed by the PITAS Scheme Administrator which is an essential part of the accreditation and      re-accreditation process. The assessment uses the standards in the 2014 edition of the BILD Code of Practice (now in its fourth edition) to assess the quality and safety of training offered by the organisations that apply for accreditation and re-accreditation.

Assessors will need to be able to demonstrate a commitment to the values that underpin BILD, which include reducing unnecessary restrictive practices and improving quality of life. Assessors work a minimum of five days per annum and need to be able to work independently and be willing to travel. They need to be able to carry out objective assessments and work within the requirements of the BILD Code of Practice and the Assessor’s Handbook.

We are particularly interested in recruiting assessors from a mental health background.
