Are you looking for an enriching and rewarding experience?
Then consider spending a year as a co-worker supporting, educating and caring for children with learning difficulties and challenging needs.
Ochil Tower is a school and a Camphill Community where we live and work together to support and develop children with a variety of disabilities. We live together in five houses and aim to share all aspects of home life in a community based manner, at the same time it is also our aim to give the best quality care and education to those who have been entrusted to us. The community consists of children, some long-term co-workers, some BASP students, some retired former co-workers, some employed staff and at least 10 to 12 young people who join each year for a break in their studies or to do soemthing different. This mixture helps to create a busy and vibrant community and many visitors who come to our school speak of the warmth, enthusiasm, commitment and friendship that they experience here.
