Cover Supervisor and Student Mentor
32.5 hours per week, Term time plus 5 INSET days.
Required to work with a range of classes across the school when their timetabled teacher is absent. The work involves taking registers, explaining the work set clearly, managing student expectations and giving feedback on the lesson. Occasional invigilation of examinations, pupil academic mentoring and working with students 1:1 on individual pieces of work and participation in school trips is an integral part of the role.
The successful applicant will have excellent literacy and numeracy skills and be able to effectively support and motivate students in their learning. They will understand the needs and aspirations of young people along with the potential barriers to participation and achievement. Excellent communication skills and the ability to work flexibly within a team are essential.
Experience in a similar setting or a proven track record of working effectively with young people would be desirable.
St Katherine’s is a vibrant, medium sized 11 – 19 mixed comprehensive school and part of Cathedral Schools Trust. We are situated on the edge of Bristol in a beautiful rural setting. The majority of our students live in Bristol and due to the easy transport links, make a positive choice to travel out of the city each day to enjoy the wealth of opportunities that St Katherine’s has to offer. All at St Katherine’s believe that there are no limits to what a young person can achieve. Through focusing on high quality learning and teaching we work tirelessly to educate young people for academic success and life.
