At The Learning Federation we believe that a child’s socio-economic background should not be a barrier to success. We passionately believe that children who attend our schools deserve the best education we can provide.
We are inviting applications for the role of Learning Mentor to to work with children identified as having barriers to learning. The Learning Mentor works with pupils on a one-to-one basis and with the teaching team to set targets and create plans that allow the child to overcome their barriers and fulfil their potential. Barriers to learning may include (not exclusively):
- Significant and consistent underachievement
- Poor behaviour or difficulties in anger management
- Failing motivation, confidence or self-esteem
- Loss, bereavement or parental break-up
- Difficulties in concentration or maintaining focus
- Poor attendance and/or punctuality
- Difficulties in maintaining relationships with peers or adults
- Poor personal organisational skills.
The successful applicant(s) will have good communication skills, be calm and patient, have a good sense of humour and be a team player with an extremely flexible attitude.
You will ideally have prior experience of working with pupils who have significant barriers to learning. An ability to motivate and engage children is essential.
Please note that in line with KCSIE 2022, the school will conduct a pre employment internet search on all shortlisted candidates.
