Are you passionate about Education and enjoy supporting students to achieve their personal best?

Nottingham College is one of the largest further education colleges in the country creating opportunities for employment and progression to higher education for the people of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, raising their prosperity and that of the local economy.

We have an exciting opportunity for you to become part of our new Pastoral team at Nottingham College, supporting our students to become ‘Future Ready’.

As a Pastoral Co-Ordinator, you will work closely with the Apprenticeship Team delivering an effective and efficient group tutorial programme. This will include facilitating sessions designed to develop personal characteristics and social skills, employability skills, and provide students with the support and guidance to enable them to achieve success, develop their potential and progress to their next level.

You will play a pivotal role in ensuring a student experience is of the highest quality and support students to broaden their experiences and take advantage of opportunities from a college wide perspective and beyond.

You should be passionate about student’s achieving their potential and be proactive in putting the mechanisms of support in place to make sure we prepare students not only for college life but also for life and work beyond college.

You will be responsible for looking after a number of tutor groups, delivering group tutorials, meeting with students on a 1-1 basis, monitoring attendance and liaising with parents/guardians.

You will work closely with the Manager for study programmes and the Tutorial Leads in shaping our Tutorial provision for all levels of students.

As a Pastoral Tutor, you should hold GCSE A*- C in English and Maths or equivalent. You should also be able to demonstrate evidence of managing groups of students, good ICT, and administration skills.

As this is a post requiring group delivery of tutorials, there is an expectation that you will hold a relevant teaching qualification or be willing to work towards one.

The ideal candidate will have experience and a passion for the pastoral care of students and be able to signpost students to the most appropriate support mechanism efficiently.

This post will have a training/induction period and then ongoing training throughout your time with the college to ensure we maintain the highest standards of education for our students and professional development for our staff.

The post will be shortlisted against the essential and desirable criteria at application stage from the person specification. Please ensure that you have a look at this specification attached to the Role Profile and complete your application directly from this, as these specifications are an integral part of the selection process.
