Are you interested in embedding Youth Social Action (YSA) within your community? We’re looking to appoint a highly motivated apprentice with support from the Pears Foundation to work across 3 partner colleges in our area.

Apprenticeships are a great opportunity to gain skills knowledge and work in the community at the same time.

In this role you will raise awareness of Youth Social Action (YSA) and increase high quality youth social action opportunities for students within three partner colleges. You will also raise the positive profile of the partner colleges through YSA in the local community.

You will need to be qualified to Level 2 in English and Maths and passionate about developing young people and creating opportunities in YSA. You will also need excellent communication skills, the ability to develop good working relationships with students and staff across the partner colleges, and the ability to work in an inclusive way upholding the principles and values of youth work practice.

In return we will support you in achieving your Level 3 Youth Support Worker Apprenticeship and offer a wide range of staff benefits, as well as the opportunity to work within a vibrant and welcoming environment.

The post will be shortlisted against the essential and desirable criteria at application stage from the person specification. Please ensure that you have a look at this specification attached to the Role Profile and complete your application directly from this, as these specifications are an integral part of the selection process.
