We are looking for Enterprise, Photography and Media Practitioners to join our team this Autumn!

Practitioners will work during October half-term 2016 to support a team of twelve young people through the NCS Team Challenge part of our NCS Autumn programme.

You’ll be responsible for leading three consecutive day  sessions (per job placement), teaching skills to 15 – 17 year olds. The Practitioner is responsible for leading two visits to a local community group (including care homes, youth clubs and homeless centres) so that the young people can use the skills they have learnt to interact with the people that they meet. Finally, the Practitioner works with the young people to design and deliver a short showcase performance.

Experience of facilitation and leading workshops is essential.

Our Practitioners are passionate individuals with previous experience of facilitating groups and working with young people.  This is a demanding but rewarding role as part of an intensive programme.
