You will be required to support learners at our campuses based in Watford, Hemel Hempstead, Kings Langley and some community based provisions.

You must be able to work well within a team and cross college colleagues and also have the aptitude to work independently, when required.  You will have excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to engage with a diverse range of students. Keeping accurate records is essential. Ideally you will be educated to at least Level 3 and have already worked with 16 to 19 year olds and/or adults with a wide range of learning difficulties and disabilities. There will be an expectation to support learners on evening courses in addition to courses that run during the day.

An understanding of the specific educational needs of such students within an FE setting is desirable but a proven enthusiasm for this area of work essential for this exciting opportunity.

These roles are fixed term until July 2020.
