Job description
Behaviour Mentors -

My client in West Leeds are currently recruiting for two Behaviour Mentors to start in September 2019, individuals need to be 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 KS3 and KS4 are available.

Behaviour Mentor Specification:
•Degree in relevant child related filed
•Previous experience working with SEN, Challenging behaviour, Youth offending, Youth Work or sports coaching
•Strong GCSE results 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 class. This is predominantly a class-based position; however you may have to deliver 1:1 intervention sessions at some stage in order to maintain the progress of student behaviour and learning, so you must be capable when working independently.
A Behaviour Mentor has a tailored intervention role that has been designed to help pupils with behavioural problems to reach their full potential and is extremely beneficial in supporting the mainstream and SEN primary school we work closely with. 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 role model. If you have the ability to think quickly 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 help make suitable decisions or further your career in education!

If you are currently looking for a role within education for the next academic year (September 2019) this is an exciting opportunity in a 'good' school. If this sounds like something of interest to you please email your CV to georgia.tams@protocol-education.com or call 0113 256 8220 for any further details, I would look forward to speaking with you.
