Leeds City College is one of the UK’s largest FE establishments with around 1200 employees and over 35,000 students. Offering a diverse curriculum within a vibrant and multicultural learning environment, our goal is to deliver excellent and innovative education which supports and inspires every student to achieve their ambitions.
The Career Mentors will work with students aged 16 to 18 plus, employers and curriculum departments to support the successful completion of T Level (Technician Level) industry placements.
This will include matching students to placements sourced by our business engagement team according to skills, qualities, interests and aspirations, developing and delivering preparation for work placement activities and carrying out placement visits. The team is seeking to ensure the industry placements are a positive experience for all stakeholders and that students complete them successfully.
The post holder(s) will hold a minimum of Level 3 IAG qualification and be able to develop effective relationships with young people, college staff and external partners and be enthusiastic, positive and understanding of students needs.
