Inspire their remarkable with us

Broadlands Academy is an 11-16 learning community and proud to be part of Academies Enterprise Trust family of schools. We are a small, mixed, fully inclusive comprehensive school taking children from ages 11 to 16 and remain one of the best choices for learning in the area. For every student who attends our Academy, we aim to raise their aspirations, broaden their horizons and promote a life-long love of learning. We are situated in extensive grounds and ideally located between Bath and Bristol. We benefit from a number of links with the local community and have an excellent reputation.

The academy is currently in a very strong position with the new appointment of a driven, inspirational Headteacher. Although there's a clear roadmap and a renewed energy for improvement, we know there is more work to be done in order to become the school of choice in our local area and this is where you come in.

As an Academic Mentor you will play a key role in the country’s recovery from Covid-19, as part of the government-backed National Tutoring Programme. With the aim to reach 250,000 pupils in England that may have encountered barriers to learning, this is a unique opportunity to make a significant impact by delivering quality tuition sessions to small groups. 

We’re looking for passionate, driven and caring people to support those whose education has been most affected by the disruption caused by the pandemic. As an Academic Mentor you will be employed on a fixed term contract by a school to deliver a tailored programme of support, unique for each school.

We are looking to appoint an outgoing, enthusiastic and flexible member of support staff to join our well regarded, successful and supportive team. We are seeking an individual who enjoys working with young people; someone who puts children first and has good communication and organisational skills.

We passionately believe that every child can discover their own remarkable life. It’s what motivates us around here. We know this vision requires something extra. Which is why at AET, you’ll find more. More opportunities, so you can forge your own path. More care and support, so you can prioritise what matters most. More purpose, for you and for the children we’re inspiring.

We offer:     

  • More influence - As a Trust with 57 schools, the work of our support team directly influences the lives of tens of thousands of children.             
  • More opportunity for a national role - Our central team develops strategies and resources that support our academies nationwide.             
  • More connection - A chance to experience what’s happening within our diverse academies.             
  • More technology so you can make more impact - G Suite for Education embedded throughout. Collaborative cloud technology gives you access to the latest tools, when and where it suits you. More tech enabled classrooms mean less time spent on admin.
