About the role
Join The Challenge, the UK’s largest provider of NCS, and assist a young person with additional support needs through our summer youth & community programme.
NCS (National Citizen Service) is a government-backed initiative with a mission to equip 15-17 year olds with the confidence, skills and support they need to make a real difference in their communities.
We strive for the NCS programme to be as inclusive as possible, providing additional support and resources to improve accessibility for young people with SEND, behavioural, emotional and/or physical needs.
Support Workers are ‘matched’ to a young person with additional needs throughout their entire NCS journey, providing pastoral care and motivating them to participate to their full potential and get the most out of the programme. They will identify key barriers to the young person’s engagement, and work with their seasonal staff team to find solutions to overcome them.
Depending on the Support Worker’s past experience and skills, they will be providing assistance for learning & engagement (SEND), mental health, physical disabilities, behavioural support and/or personal care.
The Challenge is committed to safeguarding children and young people. All post holders are subject to appropriate vetting procedures and a satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service check.
This partly residential role is perfect for a confident, compassionate and high-energy individual, with extensive experience of supporting a range of access needs. This role may require long working hours and night shifts during the residential weeks of the programme.
