Do you have experience of working with young people?
Are you engaging and friendly?
Can you support those who need it most?
We are looking for experienced youth workers to support young people within various settings, many of these young people being outside of mainstream education. These young people have additional needs in some form such as SEMH, being school refusers, anxiety, or other mental health issues. As a result, they are in need of a positive reinforcement, patience and care to guide them back into education or further education and training from a mentor or youth worker.
These pupils are school aged between 5-16 and may be in a number of settings or provisions such as mainstream school, care homes, family homes or alternative provisions such as PRU's. These young people will already be supported by either by the school or their Local Education Authority but will be in need of additional one-to-one support. The ideal youth workers would have:
- Experience of working with disengaged young people/ previous experience as youth worker.
- Evidence of making a positive impact in young people's lives.
- A calm and dedicated personality
- Desirable to have experience with challenging behaviour.
The pupils will be used in either homes or schools in the Rochdale area which has extensive transport links by road, bus, tram, or train.
To be successful in your application, you must be able to provide evidence of this as skills and experience.
Please be aware that all applicants will be subject to background checks and will need a current DBS certificate (update service registered). Teaching Personnel can support your application should this be required.
Working hours are between Monday to Friday, 8.30am-3.30pm approximately, but you may be offered additional duties and responsibilities outside of these hours.
Benefits of working with Teaching Personnel:
- A dedicated consultant to discuss current or future roles with you.
- Payment in house, meaning no fees from Umbrella companies.
- £10-15 an hour or above
- 13 weeks off per year
- Opportunities for further development in the form of CPD
