Job description
Protocol Education are currently recruiting for Behaviour Mentors and Behavioural Specialists in Watford and surrounding areas in Hertfordshire.

We are looking for Behavioural Specialists who are resilient, confident and enjoy working with children who have challenging behaviour. You must be able to inspire students to succeed despite their barriers to learning. You must have a patient and positive outlook and the willingness to adapt to different situations. Opportunities within KS1 and KS2 are available.

Behaviour Mentor Specification:
• Relevant degree to working with children/vulnerable adults and behavioural issues would be an advantage.
• Previous experience working with SEND, challenging behaviour, youth offending, youth work or sports coaching
• Strong GCSE results in English and Maths - good background subject knowledge
• Knowledge of behaviour management strategies and emphatic listening skills
• Excellent oral and written communication skills

A Behaviour Mentor works on supporting student behaviour and learning inside and outside of the classroom. This is predominantly a class-based position; however you may have to deliver 1:1 intervention sessions also in order to maintain the progress of student's behaviour and learning.

A Behaviour Mentor has a tailored intervention role that has been designed to help pupils with behavioural problems to reach their full potential and narrow the gap in learning, this is extremely important in supporting the mainstream primary schools we work with throughout Hertfordshire.

As a behaviour mentor, you will be providing help to the class teacher with challenging students to aid them in overcoming any behavioural issues, whilst acting as a positive role model.

If you have the ability to think on your feet and stay calm whilst dealing with challenging situations, this is a perfect opportunity for you to gain vital school experience in order to further your career in education!

Please submit your CV and I will be in contact ASAP.
