The role

I am seeking a passionate Behaviour mentor looking to work in a pupil referral unit based in Hackney. This unit covers young people from primary age all the way to year 11 who are all at risk of not achieving their full potential. To overcome this, the school have adopted a ‘learning to succeed’ motto that is embedded into everything they do. They aim to break down barriers to learning which could be by improving behaviour or focusing on core skills such as literacy and maths. As a Behaviour Mentor, you should have a strong drive to inspire young people and encourage them to achieve the best they can in everything they do. This school is in an excellent city location and has a new purpose-built building with excellent sporting facilities!
