Graduate Catch Up Learning Mentor – Year 7

Do you have an understanding of the challenges that children face when moving from one stage in their education to the other?

Would you like to support primary children transition into their first year of secondary school?

Perhaps you are keen to gain experience in a pastoral and academic role before teacher training in September?

** This role will focus of the ‘catch up’ aspect of Year 7’s transitioning from primary school into this warm and welcoming secondary school **

  • Graduate Year 7 Teacher Assistant
  • Full-time, paid position
  • Strong literacy and numeracy skills required, minimum 2:1 degree
  • £60-70 per day
  • Full training given
  • Lead small group and 1:1 interventions that focus on behaviour, academic development and personal development
  • Fantastic school-based experience for any aspiring teacher
  • School located close to Birmingham City Centre, B23

You will be introducing high impact strategies created by the departments, in order to create opportunities for Year 7 pupils to transition into secondary school more smoothly and deal with the challenges of changes in the Curriculum and environment.

You will be working with identified groups of students within and outside of the classroom, delivering additional intervention sessions to boost attainment, progress and self-esteem. The activities created will be personalised to each focus group, and as you become more confident you will have the opportunity to influence the content of these sessions. You will also be required to monitor the progress of each student and accurately record and communicate this back to the team.

The second aspect of this role is a pastoral role for groups of children who are finding it tricky to settle into the new way of life at secondary school. This part of the role will require you to work closely with the pastoral department and present yourself as a positive role model. The pupils may have social, emotional or behavioural difficulties.

It is essential that you are educated to degree level and preferably in a core subject. You will be well organised and have the ability to communicate effectively with a wide range of people. A desire and passion to work within education is essential, as well as some experience working with children is desirable.

This inclusive and driven secondary school is located in central Birmingham and is easily accessible from surrounding areas, as well as surrounding Birmingham locations. It has onsite parking for all staff and regular public transport nearby.
