The Youth Worker will be supporting children who come to us often feeling confused, with low self-esteem and disengaged from schooling. Your role as a Youth Mental Health Worker is to give them an education that is tailored to their individual needs, enabling and empowering them to understand that 'great minds think differently', to gain confidence in themselves and progress their learning.

This is a progressive, compassionate, values-based school with a strong ethos and a highly skilled team who are passionate about what they do. Your priority as a Youth Mental Health Worker will be the children's social, emotional and mental health development.

The Youth Mental Health Worker ideally will have a degree in a related field or experience working with young people. Many of the children have experienced trauma and require someone with resilience and an open-mind to support their mental health challenges.
