You will be professionally qualified in Community Learning and Development and have a proven track record of working with young people in a wide range of settings.

The successful candidate will be skilled at evidencing the impact participation in CLD programmes has on the young people we work with.

Post 1 – The successful candidate will be experienced in developing and delivering learning programmes for young people to develop their skills to support them on their employability journey. This will include supporting young people to gain qualifications and awards.

Post 2 - The successful candidate will be experienced in community based youth work, and be able to work with young people to divert them from anti-social and risk-taking behaviour. The post will involve developing a range of programmes for young people both in schools and the community.
