Exciting opportunities are available for people looking for a career in education or in a fresh challenge in an inspiring learning environment at Springwell Learning Community, where we provide children and young people with ‘second chance’ learning. It couldn’t be a more exciting time to join the Barnsley and Kirklees Special Provision Partnership. We’re a new, bold partnership, formed through the collaboration of Springwell Learning Community, Greenacre School and Joseph Norton Academy. Through our collaboration we are able to provide unique opportunities for our children, our staff and the communities we serve.
Our schools require a total of eight Academic Mentors across the four schools to provide an educational ‘catch up’ provision using the government funded Covid catch up fund. Post holders will be directed to deliver interventions by the relevant Assistant Principal and there will be regular reviews of progress for those students involved. To allow for lessons to also be delivered after school the working hours will slightly differ from that of the main school. Monday to Thursday hours will be 10am – 5pm and on Friday 9am – 4.00pm. There may be some flexibility around these times dependent on the needs of the school. The posts are for 41 weeks across the year to allow for a two-week academic ‘catch up’ summer school.
Details of the exact duties for our provisions are outlined in the job description as there are some differences between schools. However, the role is to provide targeted 1 to 1 and small group educational provision to support identified students to enable them to catch up on lost learning as a result of the pandemic.
Post holders require:
Wellspring Academy Trust
At Wellspring Academy Trust we believe that every school is unique, because it has a unique history, it serves a unique community context and is full of unique individuals. We value and celebrate the unique identities of our academies. We encourage them to innovate, create and develop their uniqueness because we want others to learn from them. Excellence is about diversity, not conformity. We do not believe that one size fits all.
