The position will involve working with individual students and small groups of students to support them in their learning, organisation and the development of their study skills. The position will also involve being proactive in supporting the development of the wider academic reading and cultural capital of our students, allowing them to go beyond the exam specifications and enhance the quality and depth of their learning.

The position is an ideal stepping stone into other areas of work with young people, including teaching.
