Accountable to: Team Leader
Hours: Full time – 37.5 hours
Contract type: Permanent
Location: Oxfordshire, UK (with travel to neighbouring counties)
Closure date: Wednesday, 28th July 2021, 5pm
Interview date: w/c 16th August, 2021
Start date: September 2021 (some part-time working during the summer would be encouraged)
One-Eighty is an award-winning, psychology-focused and evidence-based behavioural support charity working to support young people aged 4-18 to re-engage with education. Celebrating our 10th anniversary this year, we have supported over 4,000 young people, families and professionals through our one-to-one intensive interventions, preventative projects, training courses and conferences.
The role of Behaviour Support Professional will require you to participate in the design and delivery of interventions aimed to support young people to take their next steps towards re-engaging in education. Training will be provided to support you with the psychological aspects of the provision, but you will be expected to have experience of working with young people. You must be motivated to work with young people, especially those that sometimes appear distant or disinterested. You will demonstrate experiences of being a positive and persuasive presence in the lives of young people.
You will be working as part of a larger team, but will also frequently be on your own carrying out sessions with young people. Each young person is allocated a ‘case team’ of staff and you will work under the guidance of the case lead, as well as your supervisor. It is crucial that you are able to communicate clearly to both young people, and their parents/foster carers. You will be required to work within the young person’s home, their community, and at the young person’s school. Some of the families you will be supporting will have complex living situations, and may be open to social services. You will need to feel confident in being a key point of stability in the lives of these families.
The role will also involve supporting lead members of the team with preventative mental health projects such as the Make Me Smile Project, and the Summer & Transitional Summer Projects. These involve supporting small groups and whole-classes with research-based structured sessions in-line with the foundations of the one-to-one intervention delivery methods. The role is as demanding as it is rewarding and exciting. No day will be the same, and no young person we work with leaves unchanged.
