JMT In Touch Worker


Scott joined JMT In Touch as a Community Learning and Development Worker in 2015, having recently graduated from Edinburgh University with an honours degree in Community Education. Here he gained experience in working with SEBN young people as well as young offenders/young people deemed to be at risk of offending, and gaining a theoretical understanding of youth work and community education practice.


Prior to this Scott has worked as a youth worker within a local authority for ten years gaining a well rounded breadth of experience within the field including employability, personal and social development, youth committees/student councils, health and wellbeing and youth work delivery in schools.


Scott is partly based on the Moore House School campus where he promotes independent living through the delivery of JASS, Dynamic Youth and Youth Achievement Awards. These awards are offered to all young people at the school and are based around their hobbies/interests and life/career goals, which aim to give young people a practical-based learning experience.


Scott’s role across the school is also designed to build relationships between the young people and the In Touch team, who support Moore House young people to achieve independent living skills upon leaving care.
