Would you like a career where you can inspire people to make changes and contribute to community safety?
Then come and join our programmes team. By working for us you will have a chance to make a real difference to people’s lives. Our Programmes team deliver accredited cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) programmes such as domestic abuse, violence and aggression, substance misuse and challenging behaviour.
Our programme facilitators are trained to deliver programmes and courses aimed at supporting individuals to change negative behaviours and unhelpful patterns of thinking. A typical day involves delivering programmes to service users for two-and-a-half to three hours of the day. Delivery is either in a group environment with a co-facilitator or on a one-to-one basis.
The rest of the day is typically spent writing debriefs, reports, attending individual and team supervision meetings, attending training, creating session materials and session planning for group delivery.
You do not need to have any specific experience. The role would suit someone who is open to working with a diverse range of people from a variety of backgrounds, with differing beliefs, attitudes and behaviours. You, therefore, need to be open-minded, patient and willing to explore these differences with a view to achieving positive change.
Due to the nature of the role, we will provide you with lots of training and support to ensure you are confident and competent to succeed. The training includes assessed residential courses where you are trained in all aspects of treatment and programme delivery, including the theory behind the interventions we deliver. We will also give you support to develop group management and facilitation skills.
Being a programme facilitator is an incredibly rewarding, yet challenging role.
