Do you have experience of supporting young people within a PRU setting to help them escape gang activity or steering them away from that potential path?

We are working with a specialist charity who have been awarded a contract to work with year 11 children who are completing their education in a PRU, who might currently be in a gang, or be at risk of joining a gang.  Your role will be to work with a small caseload of 15 children to help them tackle key challenges they face in life, put in place key steps and goals to achieve to help them move away from gang related activity.  You will maintain a day to day relationship with your caseload, delivering motivational and inspiring one to one and group sessions.

In addition to steering young people away from gangs, you help to guide them to the next step of their lives, albeit education, or into an apprenticeship in coordination with an employment coach.

To apply, it’s essential you have experience of working with young people that have been involved in, or are at risk of gang activity.  Ideally, you have some experience of working in a PRU.
