At Oakhill Secure Training Centre, we look after young people aged 12 to 18 years old who have been remanded or sentenced to periods of detention. The vulnerable young people in our care can be challenging with a wide range of social and emotional complex needs.

  • Complete relevant documentation for internal and external reviews to ensure information is current and correct.
  • Monitor the progress of young people during and after release by telephone contact with external agencies so that records can be kept on their progress to demonstrate the effectiveness of the STC.
  • Liaise with external agencies to ensure that after care arrangements are met and report back to the STC with findings.
  • Support the Units with direct work with young people so that they acquire personal knowledge of young people that will facilitate their participation in the review process.
  • Participate in the risk assessment during admissions so that the immediate vulnerability and risk of the young person is determined accurately.
  • Act as a Case Holder, providing a programme of care, under supervision, for the young person in line with legislation and best practice.
  • Assist in the promotion of creating a positive Health & Safety culture to achieve and maintain recognition as a British Safety Council 5 Star business unit.
