Youth Worker Required for Alternative Provision

Job description

Teaching Personnel are working very closely with a Bury secondary Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) who requires experienced youth workers to assist in engaging pupils with the classroom and those who are deemed at risk.

Pupils within this school range between the ages of 11 - 16 and have all been permanently excluded from their mainstream school. Some pupils will be attending this school on a short stay basis with a restorative approach in the hope that they will be able to successfully reintegrate into mainstream.

The youth worker will be required to support pupils with their academic studies within the classroom as a 1:1 or general classroom support. The youth worker may also be required to support pupils outside the classroom if they are struggling to engage. The school has 'safe spaces' that are designed to help regulate pupils who have reached the point of crisis, support may be needed when in this space.

This position is due to start immediately on a rolling contract until the end of the academic year. Ideally the youth worker will have a DBS on the update service to allow for a quick turn around; however Teaching Personnel can assist with the application if necessary.
