Term time only

H3 (Hub, Home, Hospital) Teaching Team provides education to students of all Key Stages who are unable to attend mainstream school for medical or mental health reasons. We teach in a variety of locations which predominately are The Hub, a child’s home or on the hospital ward. We teach from 1:1 to small groups and need to be flexible and responsive to the children we are teaching.
Our role is to support young people who are unable to attend mainstream and to reintegrate them back into school or to move them on to a different setting. In this role you would be a link between H3, the pupil’s host school, their family and any agencies working with the family.
We are looking for a youth worker to support the safeguarding of our young people. You will work alongside family support workers, social workers, CAMHs and other professionals supporting the child and their family. You will attend meetings with agencies to represent H3. You will update safeguarding records and liaise with the child’s host school.
You will need to be a flexible, creative and hardworking youth worker who will support our children at H3, at home and with their re-integration back to school. This is a varied role which involves working 1:1 with young people but also supporting teachers at H3, working with teachers at the pupil’s host school and other multi-agency staff.
The ideal candidate will have proven work or voluntary experience with young people aged 11- 16 years, be able to build positive relationships with young people and encourage and support personal growth. You will be able to work with pupils at home on catch-up activities provided by the school, support a child to access activities outside the home and support them back into their mainstream setting. If a pupil is absent you would visit to perform safe and well checks and to ensure contact was re-established with the young person.
