About the role:

This one to one support role addresses the issues which some students might have in acquiring, recalling and retaining information in written and spoken language as well as the range of memory, organisational, attention and numeracy difficulties that students with specific learning difficulties often face when working in an HE context. These difficulties may have been identified already but they may only become evident when a student faces the academic challenges of HE work. This support should aim to develop students’ skills for autonomy in the learning environment. It should be tailored to a student’s individual needs and professionals delivering the support should set out clear goals and timescales for achieving these goals. Some students will require ongoing support throughout their course; others might require less support as the course continues; while some students might need additional support as the demands of their course intensify.

Skills Required:

Substantial experience of working with students with disabilities and/or specific learning difficulties on a one to one basis. When working with students with specific learning difficulties an in depth understanding of the effects of specific learning difficulties on language and learning in a HE context, and, when working with students with other disabilities, an in depth knowledge of how these disabilities affect particular areas of learning. An awareness of the strengths which students with specific learning difficulties can bring to a learning situation and the skills to help students to make use of these strengths and overcome barriers to learning.

Specialist one-to-one study skills support (SpLD):

  • Holds a degree (or equivalent)
  • Holds a relevant postgraduate qualification in working with learners with Specific Learning Difficulties.
  • Holds professional or associate membership to one of the following professional bodies.
