Wigan and Leigh College are looking for an individual who has a passion for improving the student experience. We are proud of our unique programme of pastoral care, and now want to develop that further to ensure assigned students are supported personally, as well as academically.
The primary focus of this role is to improve student attendance, behaviour and ultimately achievement. The successful candidate will draw on past experiences to identify progression routes, employability opportunities and will be expected to escalate any welfare concerns.
Through the use of bespoke tutorials, you will embed best practice and focus on current trends which are prevalent in every day life. During the tutorial sessions, you will be expected to build a strong rapport with the students and develop a broader understanding of their individual requirements.
You will utilise college systems to record and extract data, whilst also identifying areas for development. From the data that has been gathered, you will need to communicate with individual students to address concerns and offer strategies to align their learning requirements with that of the College.
Communication and feedback are two areas which are paramount to this role, so it is important that the successful candidate feels comfortable working both solely and within a wider team.
The College reserves the right to interview for this post should we receive suitable candidates prior to the closing date.
The successful candidate will be required to apply for a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Enhanced check.
