This new post based at Levenmouth Community Enterprise Centre in Methil Fife, is responsible for the delivery of activities related to the operation of Brag’s delivery on behalf of the Fife Employability and Training Consortium (Fife-ETC).

The core of this work is providing training around addressing poor mental health. This includes how to make changes to improve individual’s health and wellbeing whilst preparing to move into and sustain education and/or work.

This involves working to support those who either are long-term unemployed or have multiple barriers into positive progressions, including education and employment. Brag works to provide training, support and guidance to all participants on the programme in order for them to increase their confidence, skills and experience. All such training services will be implemented to Quality Standards, with fair and equal opportunity for all concerned carried out in a healthy and safe environment and in a positive manner suitable to all learners needs.

The Mental Health Inclusion Worker will lead requirements for training sessions by holding focus groups initially in Methil and Crosshill, rolling out to other areas as need arises. This will include understanding what services the focus group participants have been involved with and the success of this to ascertain what was good or bad and what gaps in existing provision we can fill. To enter into discussions with Mental Health staff, OTs, CPNs etc., as this will also shed light into any gaps in provision. Once this data is gathered then the Mental Health Inclusion Worker will devise sessions that are of real value to those accessing our services to address the problems caused by poor mental health and to move them towards attaining and sustaining work. This can encompass both group work and 1-2-1 provision. This training will then be rolled out across Fife, facilitated by the Mental Health Inclusion Worker, for participants involved with Fife-ETC. Close working with colleagues in Fife-ETC will be required to gain referrals however close links with local providers must be forged to ensure there is a flow of participants as this role has targets.

We are looking for people who thrive in delivering a person centred approach and can be adaptable to reflect the ever-changing needs of our client base. You will be experienced in coaching and supporting with an ability to ensure you can keep focused and deliver quality training and support whilst retaining a flexible approach.

It is the nature of the work of the post that tasks and responsibilities are, in many circumstances, unpredictable and varied. All staff are therefore expected to work in a flexible way when the occasion arises so that tasks, which are not specifically covered in their job description, can be undertaken. This post works 100% as part of the Fife Employability and Training Consortium and is funded by European Social Investment Funds 2019-22 through the Opportunities Fife partnership
