Sixth Form Colleges Support Staff scale point 3: £18,276 pro rata (actual salary £7,787)

An opportunity has arisen to contribute to a successful and highly ambitious College whose aim is to be the best college in the country. Wyke is an established, popular Sixth Form College with an outstanding reputation in the locality. The college draws students from Kingston-upon-Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, and North Lincolnshire. The largest and most successful A-level provider in the area, we offer applicants the opportunity to work alongside committed colleagues who have enabled our students to achieve their very best. At Wyke, we put the student first and all decisions centre around staff working together to meet their best interests.

Working as part of the friendly and experienced Additional Learning Support team, we require a highly motivated Learning Support Mentor, skilled at supporting young people with their studies. The role involves working with students on an individual or small group basis.

The successful candidate will be able to offer support with English and Maths and ideally have experience of supporting students for whom English is not their first language. Previous experience working with young people is essential, as is being educated to Level 3 (A-level or equivalent).

We offer a welcoming college with supportive management and a commitment to staff development as well as a modern environment and high standards of student behaviour. Members of staff are initially paid for 24 days of annual leave plus bank holidays, rising to 29 days after 5 years’ service and have access to a defined benefit pension scheme (LGPS).

The College takes safeguarding extremely seriously and a full range of pre-employment checks including a satisfactory enhanced DBS with barred list check will be required for this post.
