Further Information

At Stockton Learning and Skills Service we are driven and committed to support Stockton-on-Tees residents and businesses to meet their full economic potential whilst increasing opportunities, prosperity, wellbeing and cohesion in the communities we serve. We have a very clear mission to create a brighter future for all.

Ofsted (2018) judged the service as being a ‘good’ learning provider and we now strive to become recognised as outstanding in all that we do.

As part of our Service offer, we are a successful delivery partner of the Routes to Work programme which supports unemployed people to overcome barriers and enter employment. The project is a joint funded initiative involving Tees Valley Combined Authority (TVCA) and the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

This exciting opportunity allows the postholder to manage a caseload of participants across the borough of Stockton-on-Tees and provide them with high levels of individual service and support to overcome barriers to work and to secure sustainable employment. The successful candidate will be required to work with a range of partners and have previous experience of working with unemployed residents who may have complex needs.

Applicants must be highly motivated, enthusiastic and have the ability to engage and work one to one with those who may have complex needs and challenging behaviours to influence and secure positive change in peoples’ lives.
