As an Education Worker you will be on our graduate-entry training programme. There is an initial, intensive three-month training programme which includes:

  • Classroom-based training;
  • Practical workshops;
  • ‘On the job’ training with children and young people;
  • Phase one of Investors in Excellence from the Pacific Institute.

At the end of the three-month intensive training period there is then an on-going training programme which includes:

  • Phase two of Investors in Excellence;
  • In-house training workshops for example on fundraising and budgeting;
  • A  Leadership training programme;
  • An annual whole team challenge.

Career Progression

After 18 months of employment all Education Workers may apply to become a Senior Education Worker.  These posts are for staff who wish to continue to develop existing work with  young people while developing special areas of expertise within the programme and taking a lead on them.  

If you have a minimum of two years’ experience (paid and voluntary) working with children and/or young people, you may be eligible to apply for a Centre Leader position, which combines delivery of the programme with a leadership role.

We have a policy of promoting from within wherever appropriate for the development of the charity.
