Are you a positive role model who can work with pupils who find it difficult to cope in school?

Would you like a challenging yet rewarding role in a local Exeter school?

 Opus Education are looking for an individual who can inspire the next generation of pupils. We are looking for someone who has experience in sports coaching, mentoring, caring for the elderly or youth work. 

If successful, you will work with pupils on a 1:1 or 2:1 basis, supporting pupils aged between 4-16 years, who have a range of needs such as ADHD, ASC, and SEMH difficulties. Every day will be different, and you will need to be able to work closely with other members of staff to ensure you get the best out of pupils.

We're currently working with a Multi Academy Trust in the Devon Area. This particular School has fantastic facilities, an enthusiastic team, and welcomes new members of staff who join. You will be given the flexibility to support individuals in and outside of the classroom setting. Pupils may work to a tailored timetable and use sport/music etc as a reward system. 


· Mentoring, coaching, care work, childcare, or similar experience

· Knowledge of ADHD, ASC, SEMH difficulties

· Strong behaviour management, confident, and a patient individual (training will be provided) 

· Full-time

· DBS on the update service or willing to complete application (support will be provided) 

 You will be provided support and guidance throughout your registration process and your career. We welcome applicants who are experienced mentors or individuals who would like to kick start their career within the education sector.
