Fixed-term contract to 31 August 2021

Due to the success of our Learn Your Way programme and an increase in learner numbers, we would like to recruit a number of Education Support Assistants to work with learners aged 16 to 24 who have learning disabilities.

This rewarding role requires you to provide 1:1 or group support to young people so that they can achieve their educational outcomes. You will have experience of working in a classroom or community/social care setting with young people and be able to communicate effectively with them, helping to break down complex information into understandable chunks. This year we will be working with some learners who do not communicate verbally so having experience of other communication methods would be an advantage for interested candidates.

The ability to create effective relationships with young people that enables you to motivate and encourage engagement is also essential. As the young people we are working with all have different interests, we will be looking to recruit people who have a wide range of experience such as outdoor pursuits, gardening, community projects, cooking and health and well-being.

We are committed to practising safe social distancing and will be implementing this across all sites before we return to the classroom in September.

CVs cannot be accepted.

Closing date: Friday 12 June 2020
Shortlisted applicants will be contacted by telephone on 20 June to invite to interview

TRUSTEE VACANCIES
Help shape the future of Cornwall’s Communities by becoming a Trustee of Cornwall Rural Community Charity (CRCC)

Cornwall Rural Community Charity (CRCC) is a medium sized charity with around 100 staff and a turnover in excess of £2m. To help us maintain our position as a well-respected voluntary sector organisation, we are looking for experienced individuals to join our board.

CRCC has a small, professional team of trustees that offer support and advice to the CEO and guides direction and governance of the charity.  They take a steading approach in the background, attending around eight board meetings per year and occasional staff meetings and events as appropriate.

CRCC has been helping Cornwall’s communities for decades and understands the wellbeing value of being part of a strong community such as making friends, sharing common interests and having a place to meet. The government has an emphasis on social prescribing – the practice of offering preventative activities to keep people fit, happy and healthy without the need for medical intervention, this puts CRCC’s activities and delivery right at the heart of Cornwall’s future.

Being a trustee is an interesting and rewarding role and gives the opportunity to use your skills and experience, such as financial management, human resource support, strategy development and service delivery analysis to help others. At present we are seeking trustees to join our board, one with a finance background such as commercial accounting and/or management accounts and one general trustee with budget management experience and good understanding of the voluntary sector.

To find out more about joining the board, please contact Alan Shepherd, Chair ashepherd44@hotmail.com
