We are seeking to appoint, from September 2022, a caring, committed and enthusiastic Academic Mentor. As Academic Mentor, you will work closely alongside both the pastoral and academic teams to support our pupils in their academic studies as well as to motivate and challenge them. This is an opportunity to make a significant impact and you will play a key role in enabling pupils to make progress and develop key skills.
You will be expected to lead timetabled general academic support in the format of small group work, as well as one-to-one provision. Your role will involve providing guidance and interventions that impact on pupils’ academic and organisational skills and you are likely to work closely with our SENDCo and subject leaders where necessary. As Academic Mentor, you will set regular targets for the pupils you meet with and monitor their outcomes, as well as keeping records of meetings and action plans.
You may also be required to assist with covering for absent colleagues, although this is minimal, and you will also help lead invigilation in external and internal examinations. In addition, the role is likely to involve supervision of the school’s well-attended After-School Club.
You will benefit from our continuing professional development programme and be able to access training required for your role.
