School mentors

Learning mentors work in the school to which they are attached. Schools recruit as and when vacancies arise. They will usually advertise on the Brent jobs website.

Learning mentors provide an additional service to teachers and pastoral staff in schools to help children overcome barriers to learning, both inside and outside the school, and to achieve their full potential.

They work closely with teachers, teaching assistants, special needs assistants and classroom volunteers to identify young people who are not achieving their full potential, and develop action plans to meet learning goals. They then support the children to help them achieve these goals.

Contact secondary schools directly if you would like to volunteer.
