Job Title: Young persons mental health support worker
Pay: 85-110 per day
Are you enthusiastic about supporting the mental health and well-being of children and young people?
Do you have experience supporting individuals that can find it difficult to build social and emotional relationships?
With some students having spent outside the classroom in previous years, 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 Essex (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 running activities with the pupil/s outside the classroom as well. Alongside the class teacher, you will also provide support with ensuring the right support is in place for the students.
This position is on a full-time basis and full support and guidance will be given. There will also be opportunities to complete additional training whilst in the role.
This would be a great opportunity for someone that has experience supporting pupils in school or an alternative setting, but we will also be considering people without this experience.
If you are interested in this role, please apply online today.
