National Citizen Service (NCS) and Catch 22 are recruiting 100 staff (approx.) to work across their programme this summer.
We are looking to recruit people who have experience of working with and safeguarding young people, facilitation and group work skills and a passion for inspiring and motivating young people to make a difference. You could be a classroom assistant or teacher, youth worker, a sports coach or outdoor instructor, a social worker or a student who is working towards these aims. If you are, then we want to hear from you! Successful candidates will have fun, develop professionally and personally and they will also access two days of free high quality training.
Over the summer months, Catch22 will be delivering the National Citizen Service programme across Merseyside. We will be engaging with over 1400 young people, between the ages of 15 – 17 (up to 24 with additional needs), supporting them to design and deliver their own social actions, which will make a positive contribution to the community/area where they live. Each of our young people will participate in teams of fifteen, who are supported by two staff, a lead and support mentor.
For a four week programme, two residential weeks and 60 hours in the community, a Lead Mentor could receive £1500 (approx.) During Week 1 transport/accommodation/meals will be provided and during Week 2 accommodation/meals will be provided.
For a four week programme, two residential weeks and 60 hours in the community, a Support Mentor could receive £1350 (approx.) During Week 1 transport/accommodation/meals will be provided and during Week 2 accommodation/meals will be provided.
NCS – Programme Breakdown
The first week/phase of the programme is residential, at Dearne Valley Outdoor Activity Centre in Doncaster. You will be away for four nights and five days with your team of young people. This week aims to develop leadership, resilience, team and communication skills.
The second week/phase of the programme will also be a residential but this time based at a University in Merseyside. You will again be away for four nights and five days with your team of young people. This week you will be delivering set workshops aimed at raising awareness of community, who lives there and what are the challenges they face.
The third/fourth week of the programme will see the young people working out of a community hub, in the area where they live, where they will design and deliver a social action programme, which will make a difference to that community. These days will generally be 10am to 4pm.
The final phase of the programme will see all participants graduate at a large celebration event, where they will share all of their success and achievements.
