job description

Do you want to make a difference to a young person's life?

Can you help guide them to a brighter future?

Provide them with support and motivation to overcome challenges they face?

Here at Randstad Education we believe that every child deserves a second chance and so do the Pupil Referral Units we work with.
The school in question are in search for a Youth Support Mentor to work with children who have challenging behaviours and social/emotional difficulties.

This role will be challenging but highly rewarding seeing the difference you are making to these young peoples lives.
You will work closely with secondary students in small groups or 1-1 basis, supporting them with any issues they have that are affecting their wellbeing and education.
Furthermore the role requires that you can motivate and encourage the pupils to want to learn and want to progress their education, giving them a better chance in the future.

Within this environment you will be tasked with the following roles and responsibilities:
* Provide opportunities to progress academically, socially and emotionally
* Have an open, fair and consistent approach
* Have an understanding of individuals personalities and needs
* Offer guidance and mentoring
* Provide a safe environment to learn
* Deal with any challenging or disruptive behaviour
* Encourage and motivate
* Offer advice and support
* Develop self confidence, positive self image and independence
* Fully compliant in safeguarding policies and procedures

This opportunity offers a unique experience in education, whether you are looking to get started in your career or you would like a change to your current role in education or childcare.

The environment of a Pupil Referral Unit is unlike that of a mainstream school as it is much more nurturing, pastoral, student focused and personal, giving you the chance to really have an impact and create a relationship with the students.
The school offer a positive, friendly and supportive working environment to all of their employees as this is as an integral part to their success.

If you would like more information on this role please give me a call on 0161 200 1904 or email across your CV to christian.thoburn@randstadeducation.co.uk
