Their higher education provision has expanded significantly over the last three years, with an enrolment of over 750 HE students expected in September.   As a consequence of this, the College is seeking to appoint a number of Learning Support Practitioners to join them on a casual, term time only basis.

With experience of supporting students in a range of settings including students with learning difficulties and disabilities, you will have knowledge of strategies used to engage and enable students to progress to a higher level of study than their prior attainment and an effective working knowledge of ICT and Information and Learning Technology.
