Are you well-qualified in English studies and someone who would love the opportunity to work with students aged 11-16 in a school setting? We seek to appoint a Learning Mentor in English who will support individuals and small groups in order to improve their literacy skills and their achievement in English, at this highly successful and heavily over-subscribed school which is the highest performing 11-18 school in Staffordshire and in the top 8% of schools nationally for progress. 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, the highest category of school performance, for three years running.
This post will involve the provision of high quality mentoring for children and young people across the Academy. 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.
They must be versatile, flexible and a good team member who works collaboratively with colleagues.
We welcome applications from adults who can support and engage students with good impact on their academic performance. We offer a positive school culture, opportunities for further professional development and strong support from the Senior Leadership Team.
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 staff from within.
