We are looking for a strong and resilient Progress Lead to work at our expanding Extra Time Project. The
role of ‘Progress Lead’ is a 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 who are
struggling in mainstream education due to a range of reasons affecting their emotions and behaviour. The
Progress Lead will also be responsible for the delivery of, at least, two subjects that would be beneficial to
the pupils on the provision. This could include PE, Food Technology, Media or any other subject that
would capture the imagination of the young learners. Pupils are aged 11-13 years old.
The Progress Lead would be responsible for the documenting the journey of their pupils during the project,
reporting to parents/carers and mainstream schools, on the emotional, social and wellbeing concerns and
progressions of each pupil, keeping the centre manager up to date with all situations. 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 of the project,
including first aid.
To apply, please provide a CV and a covering letter to support your application, including which location you would like to apply for to Tom Betts, Head of Alternative Provision.
