Are you enthusiastic about supporting the mental health and wellbeing of children & young people?
Do you have experience supporting pupils that can find it difficult to build social & emotional relationships?
With some pupils having spent some time outside of the classroom this year, there is a massive focus on supporting the mental health of pupils who have been impacted by this turbulence. We are currently seeking practitioners to support these pupils on a 1:1 basis for the rest of the academic year in a range of schools across Bristol (with an option of progressing onto contract with the right school). As a Youth Mental Health Support Worker, you will be involved in not only supporting pupils within the classroom but will also be comfortable with doing activities with the pupil/s outside of the classroom as well. Alongside the class teacher, you will also provide support with ensuring the right support is in place for the pupil.
This will be on a full time basis and full support & guidance will be given. There will also be opportunities to complete additional training, including Team Teach.This is a fantastic opportunity for someone that has experience of supporting pupils in school or a residential setting but we will also be considering people without this experience.
