    The Night Worker Progression Coaches based in the YPSA Service, provide essential overnight support.

    1. Progression coaches listen to, and are led by, the needs, ambitions and assets of the young person
    2. Progression Coaches advocate for and champion young people’s ability to learn the skills needed
    to transition into adulthood, happy, positive and healthy.
    3. Being above all else, a reliable, consistent and aspirational role model for these young people.

    Progression Coaches will exercise clear and professional boundaries in the same way to every young person. This creates safety, respect and trust and is paramount to success. All progression coaches will receive high quality training to ensure they feel confident and motivated to help build skills in emotional literacy, emotional regulation, de-escalating conflict, restorative practice, suicide prevention and Mental Health First Aid. This is an example of the training which will be available and is not exhaustive.

  • Night Progression Coach – Support Worker

    With Oxfordshire Youth

    £24,303

    Closing Date: 16 Jul 2021

    More Details

    Company Name: Oxfordshire Youth

    Nature of the Company: At Oxfordshire Youth we are passionate about young people. We look for professional, hardworking and committed individuals whose main passion is for improving the lives of young people. Staff members are encouraged to collaborate and share ideas; we welcome people that can flourish in this progressive environment. As is common in the world of youth work, hours are often outside the usual 9-5, so flexibility is important. A friendly and open-minded person is also highly valued!

    Responsibilities: The Progression Coach is one of the most important roles within this new service in Oxfordshire.

    The Night Worker Progression Coaches based in the YPSA Service, provide essential overnight support. Whilst all progression coaches will passionately believe in the potential of all young people to achieve their goals, it is the job of the Night Worker to build meaningful relationships with the young people and provide a reassuring, consistent and supportive presence over the night time period. Night Workers will be confident at de-escalating crisis and will work with a solutions-focused mindset to helping the young people address any challenges they may have faced in their day or evening, reinforcing the positive progress they are making in their work with their day time Progression Coach.

    In the new model each Progression Coach Night Worker will be based within one of the homes
    across the County. This office and rest space will be secure. Night Workers will be able to access the on-call support of YPSA Managers, and other night workers throughout their shift should it be required.

    Whilst night workers will not have a designated caseload, they will be responsible for building relationships with the young people across their allocated hub regions.

    Where there are voids in the service which leads to a lower number of young people in their usual designated hub, Night Worker Progression Coaches may be asked to support the other Night Worker Progression Coaches within the service.
    Youth work approaches will be adopted by all Progression Coaches which means;

    1. Progression coaches listen to, and are led by, the needs, ambitions and assets of the young person
    2. Progression Coaches advocate for and champion young people’s ability to learn the skills needed
    to transition into adulthood, happy, positive and healthy.
    3. Being above all else, a reliable, consistent and aspirational role model for these young people.

    Progression Coaches will exercise clear and professional boundaries in the same way to every young person. This creates safety, respect and trust and is paramount to success. All progression coaches will receive high quality training to ensure they feel confident and motivated to help build skills in emotional literacy, emotional regulation, de-escalating conflict, restorative practice, suicide prevention and Mental Health First Aid. This is an example of the training which will be available and is not exhaustive.

    Night Worker Progression Coach will:
    1. Positively engage with young people through conversations, and providing listening support
    to young people when needed.
    2. To work proactively with multi-agency workers for all safeguarding matters
    3. Respond to issues and concerns and exercise excellent crisis management skills
    4. Ensure risk assessments and safety plans are regularly updated in line with policy and procedures
    5. Create and share with relevant stakeholders up to date risk assessments ensuring the safeguarding of young people is at the forefront of your work with them.
    6. Celebrate the achievements of young people’s efforts in maintaining a safe, clean and happy temporary home through active involvement in the brand-new Annual
    7. Provide high quality and intensive support to young people who enter the E-Beds, also working sensitively to the needs of the young people who will be sharing the accommodation to mitigate risk and negative impact
    8. Deliver consistent boundaries and expectation to young people to ensure a feeling of safety, trust and fairness. All PCs will undertake professional boundaries training.
    9. Provide evidence-based therapeutic approaches such as Trauma Informed Care, Psychologically Informed Environments, and Restorative Practice.
    10. Produce daily logs for each shift outlining issues raised which can then be taken up by the daytime Progression Coach where appropriate.
    11. Regularly share important information regarding the progress and achievement of young people with the daytime Progression Coaches
    12. Proactively champion the young people to get involved in the co-design of the model, and
    help support young people to be confident in giving authentic and honest feedback, ensuring young people are actively listened to and their ideas, interests and concerns are central to our engagement process.
    13. Positively engage in Action Learning, a transformational peer to peer evaluation and coaching model which will be taught to all young people and give them critical skills in self-awareness, self-confidence, group listening and peer to peer support.
    14. To keep up to date with relevant and associated policy developments
    15. Proper record keeping, including reporting incident and complaints.
    16. Complete and return all required information in relation to staff terms and conditions, pay and sickness as outlined in Oxfordshire Youth policy.
