The future success of this country will depend on talented, high-quality scientists, engineers and technicians ready to take on the challenges that lie ahead. That’s why we at South Devon UTC are committed to providing a first-class professional technical education for the region’s young people to prepare them for the world of work in these exciting fields.
We are seeking to appoint a Learning Support Mentor to join us, in January 2018. This is a varied and challenging role where you will work within an experienced and supportive team at a developing school that welcomes diversity and ensures an inclusive education for all.
As a Learning Support Mentor you will, under the guidance of the Inclusion Coordinator, undertake scheduled pastoral care and curriculum support duties that enable learners aged 14 to 19yrs old to access their learning through improving their study skills, developing strategies to overcome their difficulties and fostering independence and self-determination. Through effective communication you will ensure that you are aware of your Curriculum Support responsibilities and allocated intervention strategies.
Experience in a similar role would be beneficial but it is more critical to have empathy, patience, emotional resilience and strong communication skills. An understanding of confidentiality, safeguarding and child protection are also essential.
