Job description
Youth Mentors Needed - Sutton

A school based in Sutton for students who are currently not in mainstream eduction are looking to build up a bank of youth mentors to take on roles as educational project workers to aid on a day to day basis with pastoral needs at the unit. The unit itself caters for challenging youths (7-16 years) who have been excluded from mainstream education, however there aim is to eventually reintegrate these students back into mainstream education.
These students can often demonstrate violent language and behaviour therefore you must have a thick skin and resilient attitude. The students respond well to a calm and laid back ethos however it is important for the youth workers to lay down boundaries to attain and maintain mutual respect.
This kind of work is ideal for somebody who has a background as a youth worker or has worked in challenging schools previously.

Main Duties:
• Supporting students with work set by the class teacher
• Helping with the behaviour management of the classroom
• Working with the teacher to assess pupils levels and ability
• Ensuring the schools ethos and policies are being implemented
• Liaising with parents and carers


The school are looking for individuals who are:

• Experienced working with children
• Passionate about the potential for education and will go that extra mile every day
• Adaptable, and able to work in a challenging setting
• Interested in working in a different environment
• Committed and resilient

Please note that you will not be considered for this position if you don't possess an enhanced DBS Disclosure, or if you are not eligible to work in the UK.

If you're looking for a deeply rewarding new challenge, please get in touch with me immediately! I look forward to hearing from you.

Here at Protocol Education, we strive to ensure that each and every candidate has an opportunity to find their ideal job. For a number of years, we are proud to have worked alongside fantastic institutions of learning (Primary, Secondary and SEND) to provide them with high quality teachers and support staff.
