Learning Mentor, ACE Schools, Various Bases Available

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Learning Mentor to join ACE Schools, part of Transforming Futures Trust. We have opportunities available at a number of our bases across Plymouth, Devon and Cornwall. 

ACE schools is an alternative provision academy based across Cornwall, Plymouth, and Devon. We support up to 500 pupils each year ranging from Year 1 to Year 11. Pupils that we work with often have complex needs and as a result of this don’t currently attend mainstream or special schools’ settings. Our aspiration for all pupils is that we can support them to return to a specialist or mainstream settings and our focus is providing our young people with the skills necessary to make this transition successful.   

As our Learning Mentor you will support the learning of our pupils in care across our bases. The successful candidate would ideally have experience of working with young people who have additional needs as well as their own resilience to support our young people on a daily basis. You will be expected to work outside of the normal classroom environment, including off site work, as a way to encourage our students to learn. You will be professional in your approach and organised in your working.  

You will be supporting teaching specialists in delivering high quality teaching and learning by providing care and support enabling young people to thrive, behavioural coping mechanisms that help our young people make good choices and reflect on their actions and you will provide academic support for the group or young person you will be working with.  

You will be at the forefront of making life changing differences to a group of young people who deserve the same high level of education as their peers.  

If you have good communication skills, and a desire to help make a difference to young people’s lives then we would like to hear from you. For this post we do require you to have a full driving license and access to transport.
