Working as part of The GORSE Academies Trust, The Ruth Gorse Academy will ensure that students receive an outstanding education that focuses on aspiration, high expectations and personalisation. Together these non-negotiable values will instil in young people a self-belief that enables students to access the highest standard of higher educational provision and employment. We believe that poverty and deprivation should in no way limit either the quality of a young person’s educational experience or the levels of achievement to which those students are able to rise.  

We are seeking to appoint a Learning Mentor to work under supervision and guidance of the Senior Learning Mentor and Assistant Principal (Inclusion and Most Vulnerable) and senior leaders to provide a complementary service to teachers and pastoral staff in addressing the needs of students who require support in overcoming barriers to learning, both inside and outside the Academy.The successful candidate will be a dedicated, talented and energetic individual with the ability to support the learning of students within the fields of literacy and numeracy. Building excellent relationships with students, parents and teachers forms an essential part of this role.  

The successful candidate will support students across the school and will play a pivotal role in developing new approaches to supporting young people both within and outside the classroom.Training will be provided and opportunities for further professional development will be made available.   

This is an exciting opportunity for a candidate who is keen to be at the forefront of our organisational change. The GORSE Academies Trust continues to demonstrate exceptional opportunities for the students within the Trust. Recently, The Ruth Gorse Academy joined Hillcrest Academy, The Morley Academy and The Farnley Academy in being rated as Outstanding in all categories in their OFSTED inspections.
