Youth worker required for specialist school in Bury

Job description

Teaching Personnel are working very closely with a Bury Secondary Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) who require two experienced youth and community studies Graduates to assist in engaging pupils within the classroom and those who are deemed at risk of exclusion.

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 eventually be able to be successfully reintegrated back into mainstream.

The Youth and Community studies Graduates will be required to support pupils with their academic studies within the classroom as a 1:1 or general classroom support. The Graduate 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.

Both positions are due to start in February on a rolling contract until the end of the academic year. Ideally the Youth and Community studies Graduate 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.

If you would like to be considered for this position, please email and up-to-date CV to James Johnson.

All applicants will require the appropriate qualification and training for this role. For teacher roles, we require a formally recognised teaching qualification. For Support staff our minimum requirement is GCSE English & Maths (A-C) or equivalent.

Teaching Personnel is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All candidates must undertake or have undertaken a valid enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. Full assistance provided.
