Youth Work in Fife takes place in a broad range of community settings and works with a diverse group of young people. Primarily aimed at young people aged 13 - 18 years, youth work can happen in a local community centre, church hall, commercial venue or on the streets.
Youth Work is more than the just the traditional youth club, we now work with young people during the day in structured learning programmes designed to improve their core skills. We offer young people opportunities to get involved in the decision making structures of the Council through local youth forums and the Scottish Youth Parliament and support young people to make informed choices in their life through a network of youth information points.
You will support young people (aged 12 to 25 years) as part of the Detached youth work provision. You will engage and work positively with young people in their own communities, using a street based setting to contribute towards the learning and development of young people by using a range of educational practices and approaches.
You will have Child Protection Certificates Level 1 or 2, significant experience in a youth work setting, paid or voluntary capacity and excellent communication skills. A requirement to complete core training within one year of appointment is essential.
You will be supported in these roles through regular training and briefing opportunities and through working as part of a local area based youth work team.
Before confirming appointment, you will be required to obtain PVG scheme membership through Disclosure Scotland and become a member of the relevant PVG scheme.
