This is a great opportunity for a dynamic, professional individual to join a forward-thinking college to develop and teach Study Skills, across a range of courses and across all disciplines, including A-Levels, adult and vocational curriculum at Levels 2 and 3.


This opportunity has arisen as part of the OfS (Office for Students) funded Uni Connect Programme, and we now require an enthusiastic and motivated individual to join the DANCOP (Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Collaborative Outreach Programme) project team at the College, although the post holder will be based within the Student Services Team.

Uni Connect aims to identify and address issues around progression into Higher Education. In particular, it seeks to undertake outreach activity in specific local areas where HE participation is low overall and lower than expected given GCSE attainment levels.  

Reporting directly to the Lead Project Officer, you will be part of a small central team who provide a cross-college focus for FE provision at the college. The post requires a highly-motivated and well-organised individual who can demonstrate a commitment to excellence in student support, advice and guidance, together with an ability to contribute to cross-college initiatives and innovation. Your role will be to build good practice in study skills to move this significant widening participation aspect of the team’s work forward.

You must have proven experience of working with young people and mature students, ideally in delivering learning and to have worked in a college/school/youth environment.

You will be a highly self-motivated, energetic and driven individual, encompassing a strong sense of autonomy.  You will possess strong presentation and communication skills and be able to demonstrate achievement of targets. 

It is essential that the person appointed has the ability to build positive relationships, displaying excellent communication and organisational skills.

You will work closely with the tutors, curriculum and School management teams and have an involvement with organising and taking part in enrichment and wider learning activities.

You will be a role model for college learners and will work to the classroom professional standards.

The role will require you to embed the college’s values; Respect, Integrity, Collaboration, High Expectations and Responsibility.
