Learning Support Tutor in Further Education

Job Description

We are deeply proud of our academic community. Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is a diverse and dynamic learning environment, defined by a shared sense of respect for all its people. Our mission is to be bold, to do the right things and to change lives, and our academics are key to realising those goals. Their work continues to reinforce our credentials as an award-winning university, and a research centre of excellence.

Our continued success — underpinned by the number of prestigious national awards we’ve won — has hinged on two commitments: forging excellent partnerships around the world and harnessing the talents of all our people. We secured a ‘Gold’ rating in the government’s Teaching Excellence Framework; received the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for our pioneering research; and in 2018, we were the first UK university to sign the Social Mobility Pledge, further demonstrating our commitment to ensuring ‘success for all’. NTU is a university at the peak of its powers, but we know we can still go even further. That’s why we’re now looking for new, passionate, ambitious people to join our community.

The School of Animal, Rural and Environmental Sciences at our Brackenhurst campus is located in a 200-hectare estate near the attractive Minster town of Southwell.  The university in recent years, has invested in laboratories and teaching facilities, glasshouses and wildlife conservation areas, veterinary and animal science units, equestrian arena and commercial farming facilities to create a superb location for teaching our Further Education students.  The university continues to invest in Brackenhurst with a new Reception and Environment Centre currently under construction.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to provide academic and mentoring support in a person-centred way towards the delivery of a high-quality educational experience for all students enabling them to achieve positive and meaningful outcomes in line with course requirements. The role will be required to cover classroom, practical teaching across FE (College Courses) and small group learning support.
