Are you passionate about supporting young people and searching for a role where you can make a real difference? 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 Regional Pathways Coordinators to support our secondary school teams based in the North of Scotland.
This is a key role working in schools with the young people, mentors and school staff involved in our programme. The successful candidates will divide their time working across schools in Clackmannanshire, Dundee, East Lothian, Edinburgh, Falkirk, Fife and Perth & Kinross to provide additional cover, 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, coordinating and supporting mentor meetings with their 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.
Please visit our website and complete the application form 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.
