Scottish Drugs Forum

TRAINEE ADDICTION WORKER – SCOTTISH BORDERS

Do you have a history of addiction?

If you live in the Scottish Borders Local Authority area and are interested in developing a career in the drug and alcohol field, we’d like to hear from you if you.

The Addiction Worker Training Project (AWTP) is an initiative that supports, trains, and prepares individuals with a history of problematic drug and/or alcohol use, to work in Social Care.

This Scottish Drugs Forum (SDF) project prepares participants for employment through formal learning and in-work placements over a 39-week period – whilst paying them to take part.

As a Trainee Addiction Worker on the programme, you will learn about the addiction field and how to support people who are currently experiencing issues with their substance use. You will then be able to take this knowledge and put this into practice during a placement within Social Care services.

Alongside learning, you will also meet a tight-knit group of peers and future friends who will be on the programme with you.

We offer £9.50 per hour before deductions and a fixed term contract of 30 hours per week for 39 weeks. Trainees will undertake work placements in social care agencies and will study towards an SVQ 2 in Social Services and Health Care.

Full training and a comprehensive package of support will be provided.

At SDF, we believe your experience of drug or alcohol problems is a strength and can help you understand some of the issues that someone who is accessing services may face.

If you are interested in developing a career in the drug and alcohol field, and you are either two years drug free (including two years free of substitute prescribing) or 2 years free of problematic alcohol use by 31 July 2022, we’d like to hear from you.

As we are now Interviewing as Applications arrive. It is advisable to get your Application in as soon as possible.
