Full time 1:1 Mentor (West Sussex or Hampshire)


We are looking for full-time Mentors to work 1:1 with students with Special Educational Needs in West Sussex and/or Hampshire. Typically, Mentors work closely with several students on a weekly basis, engaging them in a range of outdoor and vocational activities. You’ll be the kind of person that enjoys working in a busy environment, can work off your own initiative, and can engage young people who have not thrived in mainstream school. You’ll be qualified in either outdoor activities (or working towards qualification) or will have qualifications and/or experience in other more practical activities such as engineering, mechanics, cooking, IT, or agricultural studies. Our staff offer students opportunities to work together on a diverse range of projects and learning activities, so we are always keen to hear from potential Mentors with new skills. The role is based at either our Havant or Chichester school sites, but will require frequent travel between the school and the students’ homes, as well as various locations for activities. The successful candidate will have a full, clean UK driving licence with more than two years’ experience of driving.

Full time Engage Tutor

Salary negotiable

We are currently looking to expand our Engage group provision at both school sites.  We are interested in hearing from applicants with classroom experience or experience working with challenging young people. Engage Tutors work with a small group of young people who have been excluded from mainstream school and have emotional or behavioural difficulties. The Engage programme is designed to encourage students to work alongside others with similar issues in a small group format. The role of the Engage Tutor is to ensure that students receive both the outdoor educational elements and classroom functional skills required by our curriculum. For this reason, experience of teaching support or tutoring is an advantage, as is the ability to lesson plan and design classroom activities for students. You’ll have a passion for working with challenging young people, a cool head under pressure, and the ability to adapt and think on your feet. The successful applicant will hold a full, clean UK driving license, and an interest in outdoor activities is required.

Part Time Educational Mediator 16 hrs per week


Our educational mediation team is expanding. We are looking to hire a qualified Mediator to work on Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) mediation cases as part of the SEND appeals process. The successful applicant will work from one of our bases (Havant or Chichester), but the role will require them to travel to mediation meetings and work away from base for much of their week. A qualification in Educational Mediation, Community Mediation, Family Mediation, or Corporate Mediation is essential, but full training in SEND Mediation will be given. The successful applicant will need either four years experience as a practising mediator, or, if newly qualified, at least four years’ experience working in an educational setting (teaching, lecturing, tutoring, LSA/TA work, or Local Authority post) or in counselling or youth services.
