Teaching Assistants (Year Student Support Mentor)
Are you motivated by knowing the things you do well will make a difference to young people? If so, we could have just the job for you!
We are looking to appoint a number of Teaching Assistants (called Student Support Mentors at Caludon) to be part of our friendly and hardworking team. The opportunities are for Year Student Support Mentors whereby you would be a key worker to an identified year group, inspiring and enthusing a number of 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.
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.
These are unique opportunities to provide specialist support utilising your skills, whilst also observing a wide range of lessons across all subjects and years. These posts could 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. We do need to ensure that you have good numeracy and literacy skills so that you can support the young people in our school with their English and Maths.
