Working 39 weeks, 37.25 hours per week

We are seeking to appointment as soon as a possible, a Learning Mentor to join our dedicated team of staff.  Being a learning mentor takes commitment and patience.  You will provide a complimentary service to our robust pastoral team, working with young people who need help to overcome barriers to learning in order to achieve their full potential.  You will demonstrate compassion, strength and resilience with an ability to communicate on all levels as you will be working closely with students, parents, staff and outside agencies.  Due to the nature of the role, the successful applicant will need to hold a full driving licence.

The welfare of our staff is important to us, we subscribe to Care First Lifestyle.  We are firmly committed to CPD and offer an opportunity to develop and grow your career within the Academy.  We also provide a daily meal allowance and access, before and after school, to our gym facilities.

At Trinity Academy we believe each of our students to be uniquely gifted, infinitely precious and morally responsible.  Our goal is that students should gain wisdom, not just knowledge, and we therefore take greater delight in our students’ emerging character than in their grades.  Of course, there is no need to choose between the two; academic excellence is promoted by virtuous character – and character strengthened by the pursuit of excellence.  Our mission, therefore, is to encourage academic, moral and spiritual development within a Christian framework.

We are a vibrant community, with strong and fulfilling relationships between students and their teachers, and a growing co-curricular programme.  Whilst we serve an area of relatively high disadvantage, former students have gone on to become world-class in their field.  Understanding each child to be created in the image of God, we explicitly challenge low expectations and raise aspirations.

Trinity Academy enjoys outstanding accommodation within extensive grounds; good motorway links put us in easy reach of Leeds, Sheffield and Hull.

If you believe you have the vision and commitment to work in an Academy which seeks to raise achievement as well as set and maintain high standards and expectations please contact Louise Aldsworth on 01405 813000 or recruitment@trinityacademy.org.uk .

Closing date: Friday 20th September 2019.

Please note that CVs will not be accepted in place of a completed application form.

ESF takes our responsibility to safeguard children very seriously and successful applicants will be subject to an Enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service check along with standard pre-employment safeguarding checks.
