The Study Development Team offers practical advice and support to empower students to improve and develop their academic skills via short writing courses, interactive workshops, and 1-2-1 tutorials. We are currently undergoing a period of exciting change within Student Services, and looking to recruit a motivated and enthusiastic individual who can work as part of a team to develop a range of learning opportunities to facilitate students' learning.

This is an ideal opportunity for an individual who is committed to inclusive teaching and learning, and who can effectively utilise their engaging teaching approaches to enable students from diverse backgrounds (including first in family, mature students, BME students, and disabled students). As part of the role you will work collaboratively, across student services and within academic schools, to offer effective and targeted intervention for students. You will support students to develop a range of academic and study skills (such as critical thinking, essay writing, active reading skills, and managing research). You will make a valuable contribution to Student Services at YSJ by adopting a student centred approach to the learning opportunities on offer.

We are committed to diversity and inclusion within our workforce and welcome applications from all backgrounds

Please note that CVs will not be accepted in place of the application form.
