Academic Skills Adviser

Brunel University London - Brunel Educational Excellence Centre - ASK Academic Skills

The Brunel Educational Excellence Centre (BEEC) aims to promote, support and enhance learning and teaching across the University. The ASK Academic Skills service is an important part of BEEC and offers student-facing learning development support across a wide range of areas, including academic writing, study skills, mathematics and statistics.

The ASK team’s Academic Skills Advisers are professional advisers who design and teach workshops and one-to-one sessions to support the diverse needs of students across the range of disciplines covered by the University. ASK Advisers work with students from all departments, but this post will particularly support Brunel’s College of Engineering, Design and Physical Sciences. As this Adviser role is in the area of writing and learning (rather than statistics or mathematics), knowledge of academic writing conventions, ideally across a range of disciplines, is crucial. Awareness of the challenges faced by students at different stages of their academic careers is essential, and candidates will ideally have prior experience of teaching study skills in an HE context.

The role calls for excellent organisational and communication skills and the ability to work with a wide range of academic staff and students to support curriculum and learning needs. The ability to thrive in a busy teaching environment and willingness to work collegiately are critical to the role.
