We are looking for two enthusiastic and committed individuals to lead and manage a new team of Progression Tutors. These posts provides the opportunity for you to help build a new team that will need direction and guidance in establishing themselves and their role within the college providing pastoral support. You will also have a reduced caseload of students to work with as Progression Tutor.

Part of the attraction of this post is the range of students you will be working with, it will involve setting academic and personal development targets, monitoring attendance, and punctuality. Additionally, you will support students to develop strategies in study skills and organisation or aspects of behaviour, take part in volunteering, mentoring and leadership activities. Our students are full of potential and respond well to the respectful support and encouragement that we give them. The new post of Progression Tutor aims to take this further: this is the team you will be leading.

The successful candidates will have a proven track record in managing and leading a team.

As well as the relevant experience, we are looking for individuals with the desire to push for continuous improvement, solving problems and inspiring those around them.

You will need to be flexible in your approach and willing to maintain an up-to-date understanding of developments within the educational sector and/or industries pertinent to the College’s curriculum, students and locality.

You will need to be qualified to degree level and have a teaching qualification e.g. PGCE or Certificate in Education.

This is a full-time post across all College campuses.

Due to the nature of this post you will be required to undertake an Enhanced Disclosure Check. We are big advocates of diversity so applications are welcome from anyone who’s suitably qualified.
