As a learning mentor, you'll work closely with individuals who are struggling with social, emotional or behavioural problems that affect their ability to learn. You'll work alongside teachers and other staff, figuring out the needs of learners who require help and how to overcome barriers that are preventing them from achieving their full potential.
You'll work with a range of learners, but give priority to those who need the most help, especially those experiencing multiple disadvantages.
You could cover a variety of issues, ranging from punctuality, absence, challenging behaviour and abuse, to working with able and gifted learners who are experiencing difficulties.
You'll be based in school but will have a broader remit including families and the wider community. You might work with children or young adults on a one-to-one basis or in small or large groups.
