Summer Playworkers & Youth Workers
BAPP are looking for friendly and playful people to work as part of teams supporting children aged 5+ yrs to have a fun time playing and socialising with their friends and families during the school holidays.

You should have experience of working with children or young people aged 5+, hold a relevant qualification if possible or be willing to attend training, have a sense of humour and willingness to give anything a go!

Some positions involve working with disabled children and children with additional needs and experience of working or volunteering in this area would be useful although not essential. A positive attitude and inclusive approach is just as important and we welcome applications from those looking to gain experience.

Playwork is hard work but incredibly rewarding, enabling and encouraging children of all ages and abilities to play in different ways. This may be creatively, imaginatively, physically, sensory and supporting the development of emotional wellbeing and resilience as well as responding appropriately to children's play cues, communicating effectively with children and their parents and supporting the child's right to play.

All posts require satisfactory references and an enhanced DBS check which we will pay for. We will provide access to Safeguarding training, Paediatric First Aid as well as other more specific as required e.g. Hoist training.

Work is during main school holidays. You will be working with experienced playworkers who will support and coach you and we provide access to training.
