Oaklands College has an exciting opportunity to join the Student Centre. We have a new vision for these areas and are recruiting for motivated student focused individuals to be part of this change.

You will be joining a Student Advice team whose priorities are to deliver a first rate advice service to students. Student Advisors are accessible to students via a ‘one stop shop’ advice desk located in the student centre or near reception.

You will provide an advisory service on a wide range of issues including welfare, careers and progression, financial assistance and accommodation. Your advice will be crucial in supporting students who have been identified as being at risk of dropping out of their course and enabling them to remain at College and succeed in their chosen course of study.

In addition you will deliver 1:1 and group guidance sessions on a range of topics relevant to the well-being of our students.

You will be educated to level 4 or equivalent in Information Advice and Guidance or have extensive experience and have a previous track record in providing advice and support to individuals and groups in FE colleges.
