Located on the stunning Jurassic Coast and with the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty close by, Exmouth Community College is one of the largest secondary schools in the country with over 2300 students.

The College is seeking a Student Support Mentor to work closely with the Assistant Principal (Progress and Intervention) and provide individualised support to students who are eligible for Pupil Premium funding.  This is a busy role requiring the successful candidate to work across the school, meeting with students, teachers and support staff to implement strategies to support students develop their academic progress.

If you are able to bring new ideas, energy and passion to developing the best outcomes for students then we would welcome an application from you.
