About the Sixth Form
Newcastle Sixth Form College is an aspirational and inclusive community dedicated to helping young people fulfil their potential. Students thrive in a culture of mutual respect, increased freedom, and high expectations. Over 300 students progressed to university from NSFC last year, with many of them the first members of their family to do so.
You will support, advise, challenge and monitor individual and groups of A level students to ensure they have high attendance and make effective progress towards an aspirational progression plan. You will work closely with parents and teachers to make sure that students have clear actions that will enable them to achieve their best.
Who we are looking for
You will be an inspirational and hardworking graduate who believes in the transformative power of education. You will be a confident communicator who is equally comfortable whether speaking to 16-18 year olds, parents, or teachers. You will be an enthusiastic self starter looking to develop your skills and knowledge. You will undertake an intensive training programme before you start work to help develop the skills you need to support students effectively. You will be joining a happy and successful team who are dedicated to improving the life chances of the young people that we work with.
This is an opportunity for those looking to gain experience and make a positive difference in an educational setting, or as a new challenge for those already working in education.
