We are looking for a strong and resilient progress lead to work at our expanding Extra Time Project. The
role of ‘progress Lead’ has been a newly created role that incorporates mentoring and tutoring pupils
through the 12-week programme. This is carried out in a range of tasks including leading a tutor group of
4-6 pupils that are struggling in mainstream education due to a range of reasons affecting their emotions
and behaviours. The progress lead will also be responsible for leading up to two subjects of their choice
that would be beneficial to the pupils on the provision. This could be subjects including PE, Food
Technology, Media or any other subject that you believe would capture the imagination of the young
learners. Pupils are aged 11-13 years old. The progress lead would be required to design their own 12-
week curriculum. The correct candidate would need to log weekly progress through the weekly reports that
are sent home and to ‘parent’ schools. A good knowledge of safeguarding is required along with the ability
to connect and build relationships quickly. All staff will be required to complete mandatory training before
the first academic day on the project
