Located within the Youth Employability Service (YES), with a co-location of 0.5FTE in the Youth Justice Service (YJS), the postholder will work at an operational level to provide support to young people aged 15-18-years-old.

The Adviser will be working with young people initially in Year 11, across the West side of the County, supporting them with successful transition from secondary education into Year 12 and 13. The adviser will use a MAPP assessment, information from the school, and parents or carers, to identify needs, or barriers, with the young person entering, and sustaining, post-16 provision. Using this information, the adviser will provide support to address these barriers and engage with the young persons’ post-16 provider, to improve the young persons’ chance of sustaining post-16 provision in the short and improving their longer term career prospects.

The Postholder will also work closely with post-16 providers to identify young people who have left, or are at risk of leaving, their provider or who may be at risk of withdrawing and to intervene and support them back into education.

The post holders will work closely with other YES staff and managers in their specialist area to maintain quality standards. The specialist adviser roles will be expected to be co-located within the Youth Justice Service (YJS) for a minimum of 0.5 days per week working in partnership to support vulnerable young people with YJS orders, or an offending background, with a return to education, employment, or training. These roles will also be expected to attend team meetings for their co-located team and input into relevant databases and systems as required by the YJS.
