One Excellence Multi Academy Trust is a Multi Academy Trust made up of four schools. The Trust was founded in July 2017, and is a mixed Multi Academy Trust. The vision and rationale behind the wider partnership are based on shared values and aspirations, a strong sense of community identity and values of inclusion and aspiration for all.

One Excellence Multi Academy Trust believes in supporting and investing in its staff and has a structured health and well-being programme. The programme includes physiotherapy, nurse support service and drop-in clinic, counselling, mindfulness sessions, weight management, stress awareness, GP consultations and private medical operations if required. We are also keen for staff to be able to reach their full potential and offer a range of professional development opportunities in all areas of education, nurturing and leadership.

As an Academic Mentor, you will be part of the government-backed National Tutoring Programme to help pupils whose education has been impacted by the pandemic to reach their full potential. Working alongside the pupils’ teachers and SLT, you will support with literacy and numeracy by providing tuition to small groups of pupils.

The role will involve delivering support to at least 70 pupils (or pro rata equivalent) in the format of:
• Small group work (most sessions will be 1:3)
• One-to-one support for those with additional barriers to learning
• Revision lessons (in groups or one-to-one)
• Additional support for those shielding or not in school

To support this, you will also be expected to:

• work with SLT in the school to identify which pupils need 1:1, 1:2 or 1:3 support packages
• identify learning gaps and help to shape a bespoke intervention programme for pupils
• deliver engaging sessions, to support a range of learning styles with clear learning objectives
• manage behaviour of pupils
• differentiate sessions in line with pupil’s ability, taking into account any barriers to learning or additional needs
• derive measurable outcomes to track progress
• demonstrate safeguarding standards in all practice

You will additionally benefit from a custom program of online training via Liverpool Hope University. This will be one week of training for qualified teachers and two weeks for Graduates. During the training you will take part in live group sessions covering modules including: Behaviour Management, Peer Assessment, Planning and Assessment as well as subject specific content.

The minimum qualifications for this role are:
• Qualified Teacher Status or Graduate with 2:2 or higher (or UK equivalent)
• And must have Level 4 (Grade C) or above in GCSE maths and English or equivalent
