Engage Education are supporting a specialist school in the Wakefield area who are looking for student engagement mentors to join them.

  • To have worked with learners with a range of needs
  • The ability to engage a young person in learning through a range of methods
  • To be able to commit to working at the school for long period of time
  • A resilient attitude
