    • Do you want to support children to develop their life skills as well as their emotional, social and cognitive abilities?
    • Are you passionate about transforming the lives of the most vulnerable children?
    • Do you want to be part of a revolution in youth justice?

    We are offering a hugely exciting opportunity for people with both personal and professional experience of working and engaging with vulnerable children to join our team of Restore Practitioners.

    Restore Practitioners are our key frontline residential staff at Oasis Restore, the first Secure Academy Trust in England to educate children in custody. The school is all year-round, offering 24/7 integrated and therapeutically informed education, health and social care, and is due to open its doors to children in Spring 2024.

    Oasis Restore represents a revolution in youth justice: an opportunity for children within the criminal justice system to experience a restorative environment that creates the potential for them to thrive both now and for the future. Restore Practitioners will build and model healthy and trusting relationships with children that enable them to feel safe, learn and reach their full potential.

    Your role as a Restore Practitioner is a commitment to improving the outcomes of vulnerable children through bringing your dedication, energy, warmth, resilience, and skills to their care. Restore Practitioners will work in teams based in each of the 12 residential flats at Oasis Restore, taking primary responsibility for the children living in this flat and working within an inter-disciplinary team around each child.

You will need to have the enthusiasm, resilience, and commitment to offer this to all of the children at Restore. You will be someone who cares about developing yourself and others, who brings a readiness to get involved, to take up responsibility and authority, and to bring yourself to the work in a whole-hearted, fair, and professional manner.

    You will be passionate about making a difference to children’s lives, empathetic in your approach to them and to your colleagues, patient, hopeful, forgiving, and able to behave with a curious mindset in your approach. You will have integrity, respect for others and their different life experiences and backgrounds and will understand and be able to maintain professional relationships and boundaries and have an unwavering commitment to child safeguarding. You will be dedicated to finding a way through, and never giving up.
