The Trainee Habilitation Specialist helps people with sight loss to live the life they choose by training to deliver specialist services that enable blind and partially-sighted children and young people to become more mobile and independent.

What is habilitation?

Habilitation involves one-to-one training for children and young people with a vision impairment. Starting from their existing skills, it aims to develop their personal mobility, navigation, and independent living skills.

At whatever age the training is started, the overriding goal is to maximise the child or young person’s independence, opening the way in the future, to further study, employment, and an independent life.

As an organisation, Guide Dogs are the largest employer of Habilitation Specialists in the UK and regularly have opportunities for trainee and qualified positions.

Trainee roles involve a combination of work-based learning and study. This will include the completion of the Graduate Diploma in Habilitation and Disabilities of Sight (Children and Young People) at University College London. This 2-year course is fully funded and supported by Guide Dogs. The salary whilst training is £22,000 per annum. It is a full time role.

On qualification, you would continue with the Organisation as a Qualified Habilitation Specialist with a current starting salary of £33,129.24
