Young Citizens is one of the largest charities providing citizenship education in the UK. Since 1989, we have been working alongside teachers throughout the UK to empower children and young people to become active and informed citizens.
This is a new role which will be crucial in helping us to develop and deliver an exciting court awareness pilot project for secondary school children in Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. The project will equip teachers with a toolkit of resources to help their students understand the criminal justice system and bring them face-to-face with a working court to improve understanding, confidence, and trust in the criminal justice system.
The project is currently funded until May 2023 by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner but, if successful, we hope that the project will be extended.
The Project Coordinator will lead on all aspects of the project including supporting the development of resources, recruiting schools and helping them to get the most from their participation, as well as arranging and delivering a schedule of court visits.
We are looking for someone who is passionate about helping all young people to achieve, interested in the criminal justice system and able to work well with a range of stakeholders as well as independently.
Location: Homebased. This role covers the counties of Devon and Cornwall and therefore you will need to be prepared to travel in and around Exeter, Truro and Plymouth to deliver work on a regular basis.
