New Opportunity!

Part time SpotLight Practitioner

We are seeking key candidates with specific knowledge and expertise to fulfil the role of a Part Time SpotLight Practitioner.

SpotLight’s objective is to provide five 1:1 arts-based sessions to children aged 4-12, to mitigate the poor health outcomes associated with childhood exposure to domestic violence. The SpotLight Practitioner is responsible for creating a safe space for children outside of the classroom, to validate their difficult experiences and reassure them that they are not alone and not to blame.

Violence in children’s lives can disrupt their schooling and harm the quality of their education. This can result in psychological barriers to learning as well as disrupting prospects and pathways to employability.

The SpotLight Practitioner’s role is to ensure each child is listened to, believed, and supported, equipping them with safety skills and positive coping strategies to deal with the demands of their home environment as they journey towards recovery and healing.

We are recruiting for a dynamic individual who cares about using creative approaches to transform the lives of vulnerable children and young people in our community, making a lasting and positive difference in their lives.
