Academic Learning Mentor
QE Payscale (Full time £13,550 per annum) (Pay Award pending in September 2018)
Queen Ethelburga’s is an Independent Collegiate of four co-educational schools. Located in North Yorkshire between the towns of York and Harrogate, we offer outstanding facilities and motivated students who join us with a broad range of academic, social and cultural backgrounds. We pride ourselves on being a happy community where students can grow to reach their full potential, both academically and socially. To meet the needs of our students we offer a wide choice of qualifications, a supportive environment and an exciting programme of extra–curricular opportunities, which are underpinned by high quality teaching and learning. The school actively promotes the professional development of its staff through induction, CPD and career development opportunities.
All students who are registered with the Queen Ethelburga’s Faculty are entitled to a regular meeting with their Learning Mentor to review progress and plan effective learning. The Learning Mentors are school based staff whose job it is to address barriers to learning, which prevent students from improving learning effectively. They will work alongside teaching staff, and the existing pastoral systems, to give an extra layer of academic support for students. They will be approachable, non-judgmental and provide realistic guidance and coaching to assist students to reach their individual potential. Dependent on individual needs, mentoring will be provided either by means of group work or on an individual basis.
As a thriving day and boarding Collegiate, we have seen our numbers grow year on year, making us one of the largest school communities in the country. Our facilities are enhanced annually to help ensure that we have everything needed to allow our young people ‘to be the best they can with the gifts that they have’ (our Hill Standard).
Please note that this is a non-residential position with no on-site accommodation being offered.
Principal: Mr Steven Jandrell BA
