Here at i-teachers we are currently working with a number of primary, secondary and sixth form colleges across Manchester and Greater Manchester who are keen to appoint talented, driven and considerate graduates in a pastoral support assistant role. The role is ideally suited for a graduate who is high achieving and ambitious, looking to gain paid experience in a support role within education prior to moving in to either teaching training or educational psychology.

You will provide support in lessons, identifying causes and triggers of pupil problems and working on strategies to support individual pupils. Providing 1:1 support and mentoring small groups of pupils will be the main basis of the role. As a pastoral support assistant you will liaise with parents, carers, teachers and colleagues in order to establish support plans to best help students throughout their academic year.

On occasion you will attend pastoral meetings along with meeting with external agencies to discuss strategies for individual pupils. Some pupils may need support due to being isolated from their teaching groups, you will assist these students with class work, but also with pastoral and well-being issues.
