• Ensure set targets and outcomes are met relating to your caseload and contractual requirements in programme delivery.
• Assess young people’s skills and identify their needs and support required in order to produce an individual training plan, which is agreed and understood by them.
• Plan and organise a range of individual or group activities (in-house/outside) to best support the needs of young people.
• Resource, prepare and deliver training, obtaining feedback from young people to assess programme effectiveness and identify areas for improvement.
What do we give you in return? We provide you with a competitive salary, 35 days annual leave, health benefits, a pension plan, a generous range of benefits and job satisfaction with a real opportunity to make a difference every day.
We are committed to the safeguarding and welfare of all young people and use a thorough and rigorous recruitment and selection process including PVG Scheme checks to ensure this commitment is not compromised.
