What skills and experience we're looking for

College Central, Hastings (Tile Barn Road) are looking to recruit a Teaching Assistant 3 – Mentor, into our expanding team, following promotion of existing staff who have been promoted into senior support position or now undertaking teacher training.

The role of the Teaching Assistant 3 - Mentor is a key position supporting pupils to access lessons and overcome challenges both in and out of the classroom. Mentor’s offer classroom support, pastoral support and work with class teachers to develop meaningful programmes. Mentors support the tutors as part of the tutor team and act as a supportive pastoral contact for all pupils. They sometime supervise classes to cover staff absence, working in small teams to deliver quality cover classes.

The ideal candidate will be enthusiastic, flexible and supportive. Whilst experience of working with young people would be advantageous, the ability to develop and sustain meaningful relationships and champion young people who have struggled to access mainstream education is key. You should be willing to learn, and keen to develop and appropriate training will be provided for the right candidate. You might be keen to work in a school setting prior to undertaking teacher training, or developing knowledge of working in Alternative Provision and pastoral roles.

What the school offers its staff

The hours of work are Monday – Friday, 8.30am–3.30pm (exact working pattern to be discussed at interview and agreed on successful appointment). We are a warm, friendly and supportive team, with additional benefits, such as free daily lunch.

If successful, you will become part of a very committed and hardworking team that continues to be ambitious in its drive to improve outcomes for our pupils. You will join a highly dedicated and professional staff team and be part of a supportive working and learning environment, where your professional development is highly valued. While some experience of working with vulnerable young people is preferable it is not essential. We will provide you with high quality training and support.

Commitment to safeguarding

The school has a proven commitment to 'Equality of Opportunity' and actively promotes the welfare and safeguarding of young people. Successful applicants will be subject to an enhanced check from the Disclosure and Debarring Service (DBS).
