Blackpool Sixth is an outstanding college specialising in 16-19 education, we have an exciting opportunity for a Pastoral Mentor to join our team. We have full and part-time positions available, the posts are fixed-term until July 2020. The full-time post is 36.25 hours per week over 5 days, term time only, and the part-time role is approximately 18 hours per week over 3 days, term time only. Both full and part-time posts carry the requirement to work additional days. This is a fantastic opportunity to be a part of the college-wide pastoral team where you will be supporting a wonderful group of highly ambitious students studying on a range of courses.
Our main goal is to support every individual to fulfil their full potential. Each pastoral mentor delivers timetabled sessions with each of their groups to deliver key information and the Life Links programme, the remainder of the time is devoted to pastoral care and 1:1 appointments which monitor academic progress as well as providing next steps advice.
This is an ideal post for a person who is passionate about the pastoral care of students, enjoying their company and being able to quickly establish a strong rapport, removing barriers to learning and working with individuals to maximise their progress. At the same time, post-holders must be rigorous about maintaining high expectations, standards and discipline in line with college systems.
