Scottish Drugs Forum

Trainee Addiction Worker

Currently accepting applications from people who live in Edinburgh, Fife, Glasgow, North Lanarkshire, East Dunbartonshire or East Ayrshire.

“This has been my most special and rewarding year to date and I am grateful to Scottish Drugs Forum for not only giving me the opportunity but being a solid and constant support through it all” – Former Trainee.

Do you want to become a Trainee Addiction Worker with the Addiction Worker Training Project?

We’re looking for people with a history of drug or alcohol problems to take part in a supported employment programme that will help you take the first steps towards securing a paid job within the social care field and the opportunity to make a real difference in people’s lives.

Our life-changing Addiction Worker Training Project will support, train, and prepare you to gain a qualification in Social Services and Health Care – whilst paying you for taking 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. At SDF, we believe your experience of drug or alcohol problems is a strength, as it can help you understand some of the issues that someone who is accessing services may face.

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

We offer £8.91 per hour before deductions with 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.

Don’t know how to use a computer? – No problem. We will help you learn how to use a computer and provide you with a laptop so you can get the most out of the programme.

“The SVQ class was amazing.  Really, really good. The tutor was really good as well. In addition, it was arranged that I got ‘dyslexia support’. Getting the extra support has made me a lot more confident.” – Former Trainee

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 two years free of problematic alcohol use by 31 March 2021, we’d like to hear from you.

Scottish Drugs Forum

Trainee Recovery Worker

Applications are invited from people living in the Highlands Local Authority area only.

Do you want to become a Trainee Recovery Worker with the Recovery Worker Training Project?

The Recovery Worker Training Project (RWTP) is a new initiative that launched in 2020 in partnership with the Highlands Alcohol and Drug Partnership (ADP). The Project supports, trains, and prepares people with a history of problematic drug and alcohol use, and who live in the Highlands to work in Social Care.

The project, based on SDF’s award-winning Addiction Worker Training 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 it into practice during a placement within Social Care services. At SDF, we believe your experience of drug or alcohol problems is a strength, as it can help you understand some of the issues that someone who is accessing services may face.

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

The learning aspects of the course are primarily delivered remotely through the use of computers, therefore enabling people who live in rural areas across the Highlands to take part. Don’t know how to use a computer? – No problem. We will help you learn how to use one and provide you with a laptop so you can get the most out of the programme.

We offer £8.91 per hour before deductions with 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.
