Our Smarter2gether service supports young people (aged 11-18) who need extra help with education. We support young people with behaviours that challenge as a result of the complicated emotions they experience by giving our young people a trusted person they can talk to, as well as someone who can support them with their learning.
Our young people may have experienced trauma in their lives and feel that no-one understands them. Some may have a chaotic home life, and are risk of being taken into care, far away from their own community. Others are already living in care, and experiencing the complicated feelings that come with it. All of these factors can cause a lot of stress and worry. In turn, this can make school a difficult environment to be in.
As a Young People’s Worker Social Education, you will work in partnership with the school and other relevant agencies to provide a holistic approach to the support we offer our young people. You will work both individually and provide group work programmes for our young people within the school setting. You will be based between Annan Academy and ourAnnan Service. You will work 24 hours per week term time, 38 weeks of the year. This post is currently funded through PEF funding from August 2021 until August 2023.
We are looking for someone who will empower our young people and give them a voice. It is essential that you are able to demonstrate an understanding and commitment to young people’s rights. You will have experience of working with young people either within a community or residential setting. You will hold, or be willing to work towards, a relevant professional qualification at SCQF level 7 or above.
