Sixth Form Learning Hub Mentor (King Edward VI School)
Following the successful introduction of our Learning Hub in 2020 we are looking to further expand our provision and have a rare, exciting opportunity to join our growing support team. We are looking for a member of staff with excellent communication skills and the expertise to build effective relationships with students, in order to reduce barriers to learning and support them in reaching their potential. Experience in a school setting would be an advantage but above all we are looking for the right person to work with our young people.
The role is a learning support role, working mostly with 6th form students on a 1-1 or small group basis. You will work with students to create a personalised mentoring programme to support their academic progress. In this role you will provide advice and guidance on methods of effective study and revision, helping students to improve their success in the Sixth Form. This could include helping students to find materials, to manage their workload effectively and suggesting different approaches to tasks. The role is overseen by our Learning Hub Lead Teacher, but you will work closely with the Sixth Form team. The Learning Hub provision is in an exciting stage of its development, and you will have the opportunity to work alongside the Learning Hub teacher to help shape the strategic direction of our provision to help meet the needs of King Edward VI School students.
The daily working hours will be agreed to meet the needs of the student cohort, spread across three days a week and may include a pre-school or post-school session. The formal school day starts 8:50am and finishes at 3:15pm. There may be an opportunity for additional working hours (up to 30 hrs per week) for a suitable candidate linked to the Learning Support department, providing in-class support for Year 7-11 students.
