This is an exciting opportunity for someone with experience of working in and around the education system and passionate about violence reduction and prevention.  You should have extensive experience of working with educational settings in either the statutory or voluntary sector and be able to demonstrate your awareness of evidence-based interventions and the public health approach to preventing and reducing violence. You will be skilled at delivering training to children and young people and have a good understanding of the education landscape and how the education system works. 

You will be required to work independently and as part of a team and have the skills to develop good working relationships across different educational settings.  You will be responsible for working with leaders in schools to directly deliver and where appropriate commission a range of training aimed at preventing and reducing violence.  Working closely with the Community Navigators, you will ensure that education and training is a key part of the local violence reduction system.

The West Midlands is a vibrant and diverse part of the country and the VRU is committed to equality and diversity and welcomes applications from individuals of all backgrounds.
