In the Tutor Mentor role you will be an excellent role model to young people, supporting them to become independent learners who can reflect on their learning and find their own solutions to problems that inhibit their progress.

Key to this role is the tracking of student attendance and progress as well as the implementation of strategies to improve retention and success. Another aspect of the role is to deliver enjoyable and stimulating group tutorials so providing learners with the opportunity to develop wider skills as well as providing one to one tutorial support. Work experience is integral to a student’s full time study programme and as a Tutor Mentor you will work collaboratively with departments and employers to ensure a rich student placement.

The successful applicants will be educated to a good level and the post will be of interest to those who want to work with young people in an educational setting and who may wish to eventually pursue a career in teaching.

You will be reporting to Departmental Curriculum Managers and lecturing staff as well as liaising with parents and external organisations when appropriate.
