Are you patient and able to communicate with young people ?
Are you wanting to use your life experience to really impact someone’s life?
Talkback has been in Bucks for 24 years and within our educational Equip Project, you will support young people, aged 16 – 23, to meet the outcomes on their Education, Health & Care Plans (EHCP). For some of our learners we provide 1:1 support in college, to support them to achieve their course. For the majority of your time you will be part of a team delivering a range of community day groups to help students develop social skills, confidence, life skills and independence. These include Women’s & Men’s Groups, Creative Media Groups, Art Groups, Travel Training Groups and Independent Living Groups. We also offer a range of work experience opportunities including horticulture, working with animals, retail & mechanics and you may go out and support a young person at work for a day.
You will work at our High Wycombe and Aylesbury buildings, plus in local colleges and in the community. You will work alongside people with a learning disability and autistic people to achieve positive outcomes.
To succeed you will be able to work both as part of a team and independently and have a 'can do' attitude and be a patient communicator. We can teach you all you need to know; you just need to have the passion and care.
You will have the opportunity to help someone develop and grow as a person whilst making a difference that will live with you forever. And, as one of our team said, ‘Working with people with a learning disability or autism is the most rewarding and fulfilling role I have ever had.’
