Power2 is a fast growing and energetic youth charity that has supported 25,000 young people since 2001. We are based in the North-West of England and London and deliver early-intervention asset-based programmes to young people from disadvantaged backgrounds who have mental wellbeing challenges and are disengaged from school and more widely. We are well-known for our accredited Teens and Toddlers programme.

We believe there is no greater cost to society than unfulfilled potential. We support young people to get the most out of their education by helping them to improve their mental health and wellbeing and develop their skills. We inspire young people who are at significant risk of school exclusion to re-engage and fulfil their potential at school, at work and in life.

We are looking for Programme Leads to work in Ellesmere Port as part of RootEd, an innovative new programme to maximise access to education and reduce school exclusion, so that all children and young people, regardless of their needs, feel they belong and can prosper.

Our new Programme Leads will work as part of a team in 3 secondary schools to support young people, their families, and school staff to ensure that at-risk pupils make the most of their education and improve their life chances. Work will include 1:1 support and delivery of Power2’s core programmes, including Teens and Toddlers and Power2 Progress.
