Tradewind are recruiting for a Sports Assistant/ Learning Mentor for a small secondary school in the Bolton area.
Have you got as experience as Sports Coach, Sports Assistant or Teaching Assistant within a sports department?
Do you have experience supporting or coaching young people from challenging backgrounds?
This is a Sports Assistant / Learning Mentor role starting in September 2021 on a full time and long term basis, Monday to Friday, school hours. You will be required to support in PE activities and work in partnership with the PE teacher to help deliver lessons. The role will also require elements of learning and academic support within the classroom environment for other subjects from time to time many of which are vocational in nature such as Food Tech, Motor Vehicle BTEC, Photography, DT etc.
The school is located in the Bolton area and caters for young people at secondary age outside of mainstream education. Class sizes are typically 6-8 pupils split between KS3 and KS4. The school has developed over the last few years and has some fantastic facilities and spaces to meet the needs of their pupils. They have developed strong links with other local provisions catering for pupils with similar needs and backgrounds.
Children are aged between 11 and 16 years and all come with an Education Healthcare Plan (EHCP) for Social, Emotional and Mental Health difficulties (SEMH). This means that pupils occasionally display verbal or physical challenging behaviour. You will need to be resilient, dedicated and passionate about supporting young people from vulnerable backgrounds. You will need a natural ability to connect with this cohort of young people and will need lots of energy, enthusiasm and ability to motivate. They use lots of praise and reward and lots of love, care and nurturing as a means to keep their young people on track and keep them progressing. This is a great opportunity for someone to work in the education sector with young people while making full use of your vocational skills in sports.
