Anne Frank Workers are the new front-line delivery posts for all the education programmes of the Anne Frank Trust UK, leading our workshops, training our peer educators and mentoring our ambassadors in schools and communities across the country. This is a varied, exciting and demanding role for highly organised professionals with a deeply held commitment to equality and the skills to engage 10 to 15-year-olds in a structured, creative journey of learning and empowerment.
The Anne Frank Trust UK is an education charity, that empowers young people with the knowledge, skills and confidence to challenge all forms of prejudice and discrimination. The life and work of Anne Frank provide a uniquely powerful springboard for our education programmes, and we have robust evidence of our impact on young people’s attitudes towards other social groups.
If young people are to become lifelong voices for empathy and tolerance, they need not just knowledge and the right attitudes, but a vivid sense of their own identities, passion to make a difference, and the skills to adapt to constant change. To achieve these outcomes, we need to make our programmes even more intense and lasting in their impact – especially by targeting our resources where they can make the biggest difference, and by engaging with young people more dynamically through creativity and empowerment.
We are launching the Anne Frank Worker role in January 2021 with 6 full-time equivalent posts recruited to cover different areas of the country. These workers will be managed by the Director of Education and a new post of Assistant Director for Schools & Communities. They will be supported by a specially commissioned package of training.
