An Exciting Opportunity to Join an Outstanding 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 Foundation Art staff to support, challenge and motivate students in all aspects of the learning journey. 

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 is an outstanding place to work and study, regularly near the top of UK Sixth Form College results tables and awarded outstanding in all areas by Ofsted in 2014.  With a dynamic, positive and supportive culture for staff and students, we have an enviable reputation for staff career progression and development.  With over 2300 students, New College Pontefract is the founding member of the New Collaborative Learning Trust (NCLT).

This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious candidate to join our dynamic team at the forefront of change and to make a real difference to raising standards of education in the local community.  New College Pontefract delivers primarily A Level provision, alongside a number of Level 3 BTEC qualifications and some Level 2 provision.

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