Our service interventions include 1:1 and group support aimed at improving students’ emotional and social competencies, their motivation and engagement for school, learning dispositions and their overall educational experience. In Cabra, the SCP currently clusters 10 DEIS schools. Due to the expansion of our service to new DEIS schools, we are seeking to employ a part-time (21 hours per week) Project Worker.

As a Project Worker you will work in at least 3 schools, both primary and post-primary, providing a range of in and after school supports.
