Some Vision Rehabilitation Workers specialise in particular areas, such as learning disability. However, the core elements of the Vision Rehabilitation Worker role are common to all jobs and are essential components in achieving a qualification.
The Vision Rehabilitation Worker (or ROVI: Rehabilitation Officer Visual Impairment) standard job description was consulted upon and agreed in 2014. The Job Description is based on the relevant National Occupational Standards and contains the core skills identified above.
Job descriptions for the role of Assistant Rehabilitation Officer vary. We are grateful to Rhondda Cynon Taff for allowing us to share their Assistant Rehabilitation Worker JD. Senior Vision Rehabilitation Worker roles are more standardised. Our thanks to the Southern Health and Care Trust in Northern Ireland, Sight Support and Lancashire Derbyshire for sharing their Senior Rehabilitation Worker/Sensory Impairment Team Leader JDs.Rehabilitation Worker Job Description
