About the role

Students at our school require an eclectic approach to manage their educational and behavioural needs. Our Learning Mentors support the young people in our school by helping them access group lessons or by supporting them to receive education on their own in their rooms. They are also frequently required to help our young people make short trips out into the community or access education outside of school such as at a farm, a shop or a park. 

For more information please see attached Job description. 

About you

Experience in a school or Unconditional Positive Regard setting is an advantage though the right aptitude is equally important to formal qualifications.

You will be provided with a comprehensive training and induction package.
