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.
Leeds City College's Department of Adult and Community requires a motivated and enthusiastic member of staff to conduct support assessments with our students. We are proud of the support that we provide our students and want to maintain and improve the work that we do by appointing someone with excellent knowledge of the difficulties that face adult learners when returning to study.
You will have experience of working alongside people with disabilities to find creative and practical provision for their support needs. You will have great communication skills so that students feel confident in the Colleges ability to meet their needs and that staff feel confident in working with students with a wide range of difficulties. Part of your role will be to ensure that funding claims for support are made in a timely and accurate fashion so greater written communication skills are also essential.
