As a Learning Support tutor you will provide support for our students on a 1:1 basis, or by working with small groups. Support sometimes takes place in our dedicated Study Centre, but much support is now given in the classroom. You may be required to give support to specific students with identified learning needs, or you may provide support to a wider range of students who need some extra help to make good progress in their studies.
As a numeracy support tutor you will work closely with our team of Mathematics teachers to provide additional individual or small group support to those students who struggle most with the learning of mathematics. As an effective numeracy support tutor you will have the ability and imagination to motivate, communicate and succeed with those who sometimes have little or no confidence in, or appetite, for the subject. You will work within the classroom supporting students at work in Maths GCSE and Functional Skills lessons, and you will also provide some additional small group support outside of lessons to help students consolidate or develop their learning of basic mathematics.
Depending on numbers enrolled, there may be some additional need for Maths teaching. If you are suitably qualified, we will be happy to consider you for this; but it is not a requirement that you teach, or want to do so, and we welcome applications from anyone with skills and interest appropriate to this Learning Support role.
Closing Date: 21st August 2018
