We are looking to appoint three Teaching Assistants (called Student Support Mentors at Caludon) to be part of our friendly and hardworking team. This opportunity is for a Year Student Support Mentor whereby you would be a key worker to an identified year group, inspiring and enthusing a number of identified students to achieve their termly targets, and also to provide assistance to classroom teachers with timetabled intervention/support.
Our student support team really is integral to the school’s vision to ensure young people overcome barriers to learning and achieve their full potential. We have recently enhanced leadership support in the team with the appointment of four team leaders.
You will be approachable, enthusiastic, motivated and resilient and able to support our vulnerable students as well as our most able, encouraging them to become independent learners.
This is a unique opportunity to provide specialist support utilising your skills, whilst also observing a wide range of lessons across all subjects and years. This post would suit an experienced Teaching Assistant or someone looking to enter teaching, as the position would offer school-based experience prior to applying for a PGCE or School Direct opportunity. Excellent numeracy and literacy skills would be an advantage so that you can support the young people in our school with their English and Maths.
