Practical Vocations Lead - Day Service for Young People with Social, Emotional and Mental Health Needs in Fareham


Are you looking for a unique and diverse role where you can make a positive impact on the lives of young people with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs?

NXT is an innovative service and environment, based in Fareham, created to provide specialist support to help young people aged 16 and above with SEMH needs, who are at risk of becoming or already NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) after leaving school. Our service aims to re-engage our service users in some form of education, training or employment, which we do by blending vocational and work-based training with enriching opportunities for social and personal development, alongside employment, numeracy, literacy and life skills.

We're looking for someone special to join our fresh, new, start-up service. It'll be challenging at times but extremely rewarding and you really will be making a difference to the young people we work with. We are looking for an enthusiastic and personable individual with a background or experience in any/all of the following:
Painting and decorating
Light motor mechanics
Bike maintenance
to lead engaging and motivating workshops to our service users on a 1:1 basis up to small groups, with the assistance of support workers.

Experience in education or care isn't essential as full training will be provided. What we're looking for is someone who can interact and build a rapport with young people, all the while introducing guidance, skills and knowledge to our young audience. Having an understanding of what our service users have experienced in their short lives is key; their behaviour can be difficult or challenging at times, so you need to be calm, patient, have a good sense of humour and not take yourself too seriously.
