We are recruiting for Student Mentors to work between January 2018 and July 2018.

Years 10 and 11 mentoring and tutoring for English and Maths will be via an online platform giving you additional flexibility. All content and materials for the sessions will be provided, so there’s no need to plan lessons! It’s all about your personality and being a supportive, positive role model.

We are looking for current students at the University of Sunderland, who have the ability to enthuse young people about progression to Higher Education . Experience of working with young people is beneficial, but not necessary to apply - the role is suitable for an applicant seeking to gain experience in this area.

You should be able to demonstrate a non-judgemental and empathetic approach, be confident in dealing with young people and staff in schools and be able to maintain a balance of communication with young people that is friendly, approachable and professional.
