At Pivot we believe children deserve better. In our academies we teach and support children and young people from Key Stages 2 – 4 who have been excluded from school, for whom mainstream education is simply not working, or those with an EHCP who require a specialist placement. Every day our teams do incredible work, making a huge difference to some complex and challenging children, many of whom come to us with traumatic backgrounds.

Due to the growth of our offer, we are currently seeking Learning and Behaviour Mentors (Teaching Assistants) to support our Day 6 provision. At Pivot 6, we offer specialist support for KS4 children who have been permanently excluded from mainstream school. Our aim in Pivot 6 is to support learners academically and socially to prepare them for transition back into mainstream school.

We are looking for candidates who have experience of working with young people with complex needs, who can engage and inspire.

Our Learning and Behaviour Mentors play a key role in addressing the barriers to learning for our young people, supporting in the classroom, this role enables our learners to achieve their full potential. Through innovative, creative and professional practice, you will be able to engage our young people and inspire them to learn new skills and develop their self-esteem. Although this area can be challenging, we can offer the right candidate a supportive and fun working environment.

Our Pivot 6 site is based in Bradley, Huddersfield, however, a significant number of our learners are based in Bradford and therefore travel to our Bradford provision may be required.

Working at Pivot will give you a real chance to change our learner’s lives and we truly believe you will find working here a rewarding experience.
