Behaviour Mentor Required for Teaching assistant post

This vacancy has now expired.

Job description

Are you a Behaviour mentor looking for a new opportunity within Education? Do you have a proven track record of supporting young people who display challenging behaviours? Teaching Personnel are working very closely with a Bury Secondary Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) who requires an experienced Behaviour mentor to assist when engaging pupils within the classroom and those who are deemed at risk of exclusion. Due to an influx of new pupils in this provision this position is due to start as soon as possible.

Pupils within this school range between the ages of 11-16 and have all been permanently excluded from their mainstream school. Some pupils will be attending this school on a short stay basis with a restorative approach in the hope that they will eventually be able to be successfully reintegrated back into mainstream.

The Youth worker will be required to support pupils with their academic studies within the classroom as a 1:1 or general classroom support. The Youth Worker may also be required to support pupils outside the classroom if they are struggling to engage. The school has 'safe spaces' that are designed to help regulate pupils who have reached the point of crisis, support may be needed when in this space.

This position is due to start in as soon as possible on a rolling contract until the end of the academic year. Ideally the Youth worker will have a DBS on the update service to allow for a quick turn around; however Teaching Personnel can assist with the application if necessary.

If you would like to be considered for this position, please email and up-to-date CV to James Johnson.
