Mentor and Teaching Assistant roles (Skills and Employability)

An exciting opportunity has arisen to give additional support to our students at this critical time in their education.

Government funding through the 16-19 Tuition Fund has been provided to FE Colleges to support students in this academic year who have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdowns.

At Oldham College, we know that no two people are the same and that some need a little more help than others. That’s why we are accessing the 16-19 Tuition Fund. This is a government initiative used to provide small group tuition sessions in English, Maths, and other courses where learning has been disrupted as a result of COVID-19.

The successful candidates will support the tutors and work with small groups of students within the Skills and Employability curriculum area to support and mentor them for their vocational and/or academic qualifications and developing their wider skills to achieve and progress.

This will include working with students to identify areas for their improvement, developing their skills and knowledge relevant to their qualifications such as written work, organisation skills, revision, essay writing, enhancing their examination technique and maintaining their motivation and confidence in the subject.

You will need to be competent and confident in supporting students in learning and progressing, be able to quickly build rapport with students, and keep accurate records of attendance and progress.

You will work collaboratively with the Curriculum Team who can support you in this role.

If you have the drive, skills, abilities, and qualities to make a real difference then we would like to hear from you.
