Behaviour Mentors - Pupil Referral Units & SEMH Schools

Are you looking for a new but challenging role?

Do you consider yourself to be a role model for pupils who display challenging behaviour and face barriers to learning?

Could you work with pupils from some of the most deprived areas who have been excluded from mainstream schools, and help them make better decisions?

You could be a graduate of Psychology, Criminology or Youth or Social Work or have volunteered with community projects and understand young people. Someone with a sports background would also be ideal.

Person Specification - Behaviour Mentor
This role would suit a determined and resilient graduate who has a passion and flare for working with young people. You must be able to build relationships with hard to reach and vulnerable students and liaise with parents, teachers and external professionals. We require someone with a 2:2 or above degree and a good academic background in order to support these pupils academically on occasion. Most of all you will have a passion for education and helping young people succeed in life.

About the role
My client SEMH schools and PRUs are looking for Behaviour Mentors that can engage with pupils on an individual and group basis. In order to fulfil the demands of this role, you will be expected to prepare and deliver various activities to young people who demonstrate challenging behaviour. In addition to this, you will be monitoring students' attendance and behaviour, reporting back to senior staff to track progress. You will be working alongside experienced teachers who will guide you and provide excellent training.
The staff are passionate, driven and determined to ensure all students achieve the best possible start in life. Many of the pupils from these schools have been excluded from mainstream school and will be looking to transition back to mainstream.

If you think that you could be what we are looking for, then we would love to hear from you!
