We seek to appoint an effective and enthusiastic Academic Mentor as soon as possible, at this highly successful, heavily over-subscribed school which is firmly established as one of the highest performing secondary schools in the region (and in the top 5% - 10% of schools nationally).  We gained ‘Good’ in our 2018 Ofsted inspection and as part of the Local Authority’s quality assurance strategy, we have gained Category 1 status, which is the highest category of school performance, for four years running.

The successful candidate will provide students with academic intervention and support to address gaps in knowledge and understanding as a result of COVID 19 school closures.  You will provide both 1 to 1 and small group support to targeted students.

We hope you will be attracted to apply to work in our friendly, orderly and thriving school community.  Erasmus Darwin Academy is a highly successful and popular school that has an excellent reputation.  We are keen to attract candidates who have enjoyed success at A-Level or beyond, possessing suitable skills and attributes for a role that involves working directly with children and young people.

In return, we offer an incredibly positive working environment, passionately believing that our human resources are our most important and valuable resources. Therefore, our staff wellbeing strategy is at the heart of our ongoing improvement work, meaning that middle and senior leaders are committed to ensuring that all staff are happy, cared for, listened to and professionally equipped to fulfil their role to the highest possible standard. Furthermore, opportunities for career progression regularly arise, with the Academy having an excellent record of training and developing our own associate staff and leaders from within.
