An Exciting Opportunity to Join a Dynamic New Team!

This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the development of student support through raising aspirations and performance and helping to build ambition, confidence and resilience in young people.  Working as part of a team, you will be responsible and accountable for a cohort of students, working with them in a diverse range of ways including goal-setting, monitoring achievement and attendance and motivational coaching.  You will be expected to liaise with parents, Subject Teachers, Heads of School and Senior Progress Tutors to support, challenge and motivate students in all aspects of the learning journey.  The successful candidate will take a lead on all safeguarding and child protection issues at the college, being part of the broader safeguarding team and working with multi-agencies where necessary.

We are looking for a committed and motivated individual, with experience of providing assistance, support and guidance to young adults.  You should have excellent communication and language skills and have the flexibility to occasionally work evenings at College events.

New College Bradford is a 16-19 free school which opened in September 2019, initially with 550 students, rising to 1200 by September 2021.  The college sits within the New Collaborative Learning Trust, a multi-academy trust established by New College Pontefract (an Ofsted outstanding provider).  New College Pontefract, New College Doncaster and New College Bradford work closely together, presenting exciting opportunities for collaboration, support, development and progression. We believe that students at New College Bradford should enjoy high-quality teaching and learning underpinned by a culture of high expectations, challenge and support, both for students and staff, which will enable young people in Bradford to secure high-quality qualifications to support them into employment, training and higher education.

Working in a new campus, you will join a focused and driven team at the cutting-edge of teaching and learning, with an unwavering desire to make a real difference in improving the life chances of the young people of Bradford.  New College Bradford will primarily deliver A Levels, alongside a number of Level 3 Applied General qualifications.

If you believe that you have the skills and abilities to take on this role, we’d love to hear from you.
