Engagement Support Workers: x3 (York, West and North & East, hourly paid,37 hours per week, min 30 weeks per year) Prov The Prince’s Trust team programme is an intensive 12 week course designed to develop confidence, employability and team skills in young people (16-25). The course involves some ‘classroom’ based delivery but also includes community projects, work placements and a mandatory 1 week outward bound type residential element. To be part of this team you will need considerable creativity, boundless energy, complete commitment, total enthusiasm and a real passion for working with young people who are often both challenged and challenging. For all posts an enthusiasm for, understanding of and commitment to NEET engagement is absolutely essential.
Experience and qualifications in careers guidance/youth/social work would be a distinct advantage. Whilst land based skills are not essential, practical skills of some kind (e.g. construction, motor vehicle, the arts, outdoor pursuits etc) are very useful. Flexibility and the ability to travel to outreach venues (probably using own transport) and to spend at least 3 weeks per year on residential is a fundamental requirement of all roles.
An enhanced CRB will be required for all staff.
