Month: January 2016
We have been commissioned by Halton Borough Council Public Health (for the second year running) to deliver our R U Different? Programme in nine Secondary Schools within the Halton area in 2015-16.
R U Different? is a social norms approach to positively tackling risky lifestyle choices by young people, and has been run in over 180 UK and International Schools, engaging over 100,000 young people, since its conception six years ago.
We are looking for organisations / individuals from Halton or surrounding areas, to support the delivery of two of our key interventions between March 2016 – May 2016.
Our requirement is to find both Support Team Members*and Lead Facilitators**. This work will be paid and within school hours (between 8am – 3.30pm) excluding travel time.
Social Sense will provide full training to recruited partners, who will then support and/or lead deliver our Interactive Assemblies and/or Enterprise Sessions to the schools involved. Safeguarding training and Quality Assurance checks are key priorities throughout our programmes.
We are looking for: experienced, reliable, youth organisation workers / youth workers / partner organisations who are interested in this type of delivery and who would welcome an extra income***.
*Generally on Enterprise Days, 2-5 support team members are required to floor walk/join specific tables and encourage students to develop positive Social Norms campaigns.
**A lead facilitator on the day would present and feedback, via an interactive assembly, the findings from the student’s survey that they completed in December 2015. For the Enterprise Day, a Lead Facilitator would be required to present and facilitate the sessions throughout the day.
***Delivery Days are spread out over a four month period (March – May), there will be approximately 9 days available.
