Break Out Clubs offer a range of holiday clubs and weekly after school provision to meet the needs of children and young people aged 2-19 with Special Educational Needs.

The clubs provide opportunities for young people to spend time with their peers; allowing their family to take a break from their caring role. Activities include soft play, creative arts, music, crafts, sports and games, multi-sensory room, outdoor learning, computers and off-site activities.

As a Support Worker you will be part of a wider team offering you opportunities to use your existing skills, be creative and feed into the further development of the Break Out Club and ensure that we are delivering enriching and enjoyable activities.

There is a minimum of 4 hours per week work during term time on offer, plus an opportunity for additional hours in term time and in the school holidays.

The Break Out Clubs after school currently run from 3.30pm to 5:30pm weekdays at Hilltop, Kelford & Newman Schools in Rotherham.

The holiday clubs run during October half term, February half term, Easter holidays, Spring Bank Holidays and Summer holidays, 10am until 3pm.

There is no requirement to work at each venue; you have the flexibility to choose.
