A Primary School located in the Northfield area of Birmingham are looking to recruit a Behaviour Mentor to support pupils with challenging behaviours. They are looking to engage with someone who is experienced working with challenging behaviours and removing barriers to learning.

  • Be confident building positive relationships with pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to help them progress both socially and academically

  • Team Teach qualification (not essential but would be an advantage)

You will be part of a team of staff who are passionate about raising pupil attainment and helping children to reach their potential combined with modern resources and facilities, which makes this a lovely school to be a part of. The position is to start ASAP - July 2021 with the potential to extend should additional support still be required in the new academic year.
