Are you passionate about supporting young people and searching for a role where you can make a real difference and where your time can be transformational? Our in-school mentoring has profound impacts on mentees in their confidence, wellbeing, achievement and post-school progression. We are looking for a Regional Pathways Coordinator to support our secondary school teams based in Aberdeen.
This is a key role working in schools with the young people, mentors and school staff involved in our programme. The successful candidate will divide their time working across schools in Aberdeen (with the potential to support Aberdeenshire schools in the future) to provide additional cover (when needed), support, training and encouragement. The role requires flexibility, enthusiasm and the willingness to travel between locations (travel expenses will be reimbursed).
Responsibilities will include delivering group work for young people, coordinating and supporting mentor meetings with young people and being a go to person in school for the MCR programme. In times where school cover is less intensive you will form part of the regional team supporting local mentor recruitment, training and events depending on local circumstances. You will be an integral part of the schools community and wider MCR team, liaising with education colleagues and external stakeholders but the most important part of this role is delivering the MCR programme to young people.
Please note: A driving licence is essential for this role.
Closing Date: Friday 25 August at 5pm
Please complete the application form on our website attaching your CV and explain (referring to the job description, person specification and providing examples from your current or previous roles) in under 500 words why you would be excellent in this role.
