Ardor Health’s School Careers

Ardor Health School Careers

Ardor Health Solutions began almost 20 years with the creation of its school program. Since then, we’ve helped hundreds of Speech Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists and School Psychologists find amazing positions all over the country in a variety of different schools. We offer positions in private, public, charter and special education schools. We know your passion is helping others, and we love that! That’s why we take care of finding you the position you want, negotiating the contract for you and setting you up with full benefits, that way you can help children in need.

Why Schools?

Every year, there is a growing need for SLPs, OTs, PTs, SSPs, and Special Education Teachers all across the country in hundreds of schools. Why? Unfortunately, there is a shortage of qualified clinicians like yourself provide care to children who need it the most. Because of that shortage, thousands of children go without care every year. But that changes when you come in! Your expert level of care can help reduce the number of children who will go a whole year without the qualified care they need.

Higher Pay & Benefits

There are plenty of reasons to travel for school assignments. In addition to providing care to the children who need it the most, there are a host of benefits for your career as well! Because of the large demand, travel school assignments typically result in higher pay because of the urgent need of that position since school districts are legally obligated to provide these services for children. Keep in mind, those great rates will extend for the life of the contract, which typically average 42 weeks. In addition, you’ll be set with full Health Insurance Coverage and 401k enrollment from day one.

Stability and Time Off

One of the major concerns we hear from most of our travelers is the concern about the length of typical travel contracts which are 13-weeks. One of the major benefits of school contracts is there 42 week length and the stability of a steady paycheck that they provide. In addition, you get to enjoy built-in time off because of school holidays and get paid for it! This gives you time to take on PRN work or plan vacations with your family.

Changing Lives

The monetary benefits and vacation incentives are all fantastic reasons to travel for a School System position, but it’s your passion to help children which will ultimately result in your love of the job. You may have the option to work in a variety of facilities, but we believe a school system could you use your sharp skills and caring heart.
