Refugee Learning Mentor Project Manager
- £32,000 per annum pro rata (£19,200)
- 21 hours/week
- Battersea, Wandsworth,
We are looking for someone who is passionate about working with young people from refugee backgrounds and about education. You will have a background in education in the UK (for example, as a teacher, teaching assistant or youth worker) and experience of working as a volunteer or managing volunteers – ideally with refugees.
You will lead our successful and well-established Learning Mentor project, with three part-time staff and 40 – 70 volunteer mentors and mentees. Learning Mentors are carefully matched with a refugee young person who will benefit from regular one-to-one support in their home with homework and study skills. Volunteer Learning Mentors receive training and then visit their mentee for an hour a week. The staff team make the matches, support the mentors and monitor the progress of each mentor and mentee relationship. The results are extremely rewarding and the project enables children and young people to grow in confidence and achieve their potential.
Please apply by sending in the application form to firstname.lastname@example.org by 9am on 6th November 2018. Interviews are on 15th November.
