Behaviour Mentors - Selby

I am working with a school in the Selby area who are currently recruiting for two Behaviour Mentors to start immediately.

The school are looking for individuals 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 KS3, KS4 & KS5 are available.

Behaviour Mentor Specification:
•Degree in relevant field
•Previous experience working within schools, with SEN children, challenging behaviour, youth work or sports coaching would be desirable
•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
•Exceptional communication skills
•Able to really work with and aid the main teachers

You MUST have a DBS on the update service or be willing to get a new one. You cannot work in our schools without this.

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 is 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 can 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 this sounds like something you are interested in please apply now or call 0113 246 8220 to speak with Toni for further details I look forward to speaking with you.
