Learning Mentors job summary

We are a forward thinking Autism Specific Specialist Free School seeking a Learning Mentor with a passion for improving life outcomes for every learner.

This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of the school’s development where you will be working closely with the Class Teacher and HLTA’s to support a small class of young people with a diagnosis of Autism.

We aim to deliver the highest level of education and experiences to ensure the best life chances become a sustainable reality for every young person (on an individual needs led basis). Together, we will create a safe, positive and structured environment in which every young person is respected and encouraged to achieve independence (through academic, employment and personal skills development).

To be considered for this role, you will need to be able to demonstrate a desire for improving pupil outcomes (including those of high aspiration and vision). You will also offer a flexible approach to your role and be confident to support a range of subjects in a small group and across various levels of academic ability.

Being a Learning Mentor takes bravery, patience and commitment. But working with autistic people gives so much more in return.

We need you to be resilient, supportive and sensitive towards the needs of autistic people.

Along with a host of benefits – from shopping discounts to flexible working and a competitive pension scheme - we’ll make sure you get excellent autism-specific training to help further your career.

You may have a personal connection, a desire to work with or real life experiences working with autistic people. If you share our Values and are willing to make a difference to the lives of autistic people, we’d love to hear from you.

Closing date: Friday, 1st July 2022
Interview date: Thursday, 14th July 2022

Unfortunately, we cannot respond to all applications. If you have not heard from us within three weeks of the closing date, please assume you have not been shortlisted for interview on this occasion. We will not be accepting applications from previous applicants on this occasion.

The National Autistic Society is here to transform lives, challenges perceptions and build a society that works for autistic people. Visit our website to find out more about who we are and what we do.

Successful applicants will be required to complete the relevant safeguarding checks.

We are an equal opportunities employer.
