Attendance Mentors working with pupils

Work as an Attendance Mentor

Help make every day of school count for all pupils.

Thousands of children are missing out on vital hours of their education.

This must change, and fast.

Protocol Education is working with schools to help pupils and their families overcome barriers to learning and attendance through our Attendance Mentor Programme. We are looking for people to work with pupils in and outside of local schools to help them improve their attendance and attainment.
