A Behaviour Mentor is required to promote positive behaviours with identified pupils in a Rochdale primary school from September 2024.

They are looking to engage with candidates who are experienced working with behaviours that challenge and can help overcome barriers to learning. School-based experience is not essential and candidates with transferable skills from other sectors; such as Support Work, Residential Support etc. will be considered.

A range of mainstream schools have seen an increase in the number of exclusions in recent years; as such, the school is looking to increase behavioural support to work alongside those who are at risk of inclusion.

The ideal candidate will:

  • Be experienced working alongside children or young people with SEN or those who require assistance in promoting positive behaviour; this does not need to be school based, those from a Youth Work, Social Care, Residential Care and Sports Coaching background are welcome to apply
  • Have a calm, nurturing approach and able to define clear expectations
  • Be confident building positive relationships with pupils from vulnerable backgrounds to help them progress both socially and academically

We work with schools across Bury, Rochdale, Bolton, Oldham, North and Central Manchester, who serve diverse catchment areas.

You will be provided with:

  • Ongoing support for a dedicated, supportive team; including additional training and free CPD from experienced Leaders in Education
  • Free Safeguarding training
  • £200 Referral fee for every member of staff that you recommend to Monarch Education (Terms & Conditions apply)
  • Highly competitive, negotiable rates of pay

To express your initial interest, please send your CV, detailing your relevant experience. A consultant will then be in touch to speak with you further.
