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.

The Pivot Academy Kirklees offers a therapeutic nurture provision for learners with complex social, emotional, mental health and other associated needs. We recognise each of our learners as unique with different experiences and offer a pathway to reflect their individual needs and support success.

We are currently seeking enthusiastic and resilient Learning and Behaviour Mentors (Teaching Assistants) to support our young people. 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.

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.

We do encourage you to submit your application form as soon as possible as we reserve the right to change the closing date for a vacancy.
