Clayfields House provides 24/7 secure care, education, programme work and treatment for up to 20 young people aged between 10 and 18 years of age. Young people are placed with us either on criminal grounds in terms of remand or sentenced or, on welfare grounds because of high level risks to themselves. Children residing with us have highly complex needs including chronic self-harm and suicidal ideation, substance misuse and trauma. The children we work with are some of the most vulnerable and challenging children in the country, and we believe that positive change is possible for all of the children we work with.
Clayfields House is graded overall “Good” by Ofsted because of the high quality of our offer and the outcomes our young people achieve.
An essential part of our work is providing assessment then targeted intervention work for young people to reduce their offending and/or other high-risk behaviours. The Intervention Team has developed a national reputation for expert and innovative work and has examples of this published on the Youth Justice Effective Practice Resource Hub.
You will deliver high quality, innovative programme and intervention work for young people either 1:1 or in groups in order to reduce offending and/or high-risk behaviours. You will be a graduate in a relevant discipline and already have some relevant training and experience in this field, highly literate and able to provide leadership and expertise to other colleagues in the centre.
