Prospective Staff Open Days

ACE Schools in Exeter, part of Transforming Futures Trust, who provide educational services across Devon and Cornwall, has launched a campaign to encourage people to think about how they can help young people in their community.

Learning Mentors can make a huge difference to young people, helping them access learning and supporting them to take part in a wide range of activities both in and outside school. Engaging with pupils in sport, science and activities based in the countryside are just some of the examples of how being a learning mentor at ACE schools differs from more traditional settings.

Matt Bindon is the Head teacher of ACE schools.  He said “We have opportunities for people who are dedicated to making a difference to the young people we serve. There are vacancies for people with a range of career backgrounds and experiences to become part of the team.  Our staff tell me that it is an extremely satisfying job, with the added bonuses of the holiday and local government pension schemes.”

Becoming a Learning Mentor is easier than you might think.  At Transforming Futures Trust we have excellent, highly skilled and trained teaching staff who work with our young people and can offer training and support to Learning Mentors.   

We’re planning some open days so you can find out more.  You can tour the school, meet some of our staff and learn more about what being a Learning Mentor is all about.

These are on Thursday 14th July at 3 – 4 and then again at 6 – 7.   If you’d like to register your interest – with no obligation – so you can find out when these open days are, or would like a chat with someone to find out more, please contact
