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.  You will lead a team of Progress Tutors in the delivery of high quality pastoral provision which supports target grade achievements for all students under your guidance.  The role will require you to establish a distinct team culture for both Progress Tutors and students of ambition, success, perseverance and diligence.  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 previous experience in a similar role and with knowledge of statutory safeguarding procedures.  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 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.
