Specialist Learning Support Tutor

University of Surrey - Library & Learning Support Services

Salary: £30,738 to £37,768 per annum
Interview Date: To be confirmed

The University of Surrey is amongst the highest achieving universities in the United Kingdom, having recently been awarded The Times/Sunday Times University of the Year Award for 2016. We are ranked 4th in The Guardian league table for 2016, 8th in the complete University guide and the recipient of three Queen’s Anniversary Prizes. This has positioned Surrey for even greater success in the future.

The Department of Library and Learning Support Services (LLSS) is looking for an enthusiastic individual to work within Additional Learning Support (the University’s disabilities and dyslexia service).

Coming at an opportune time to contribute to the transformation of our service, we are looking for passionate and committed individuals with a desire to make a difference.  While one-to-one tutoring/mentoring of students with Specific Learning Differences and on the Autistic Spectrum is an integral aspect of the role, the post holder will also provide disability advice and guidance to our neurodiverse students and, on occasion, to students with other disabilities.

Other aspects of the role will include developing learning resources, planning and delivering workshops and contributing generally to the development of the service. The post-holder will also be required to contribute to our service-wide commitments to work collaboratively across the institution with academic and professional colleagues, contributing to the development of an inclusive learning environment for all. Persons interested only in providing one to-to-one tuition therefore need not apply.

We require a specialist who is able to work flexibly, sometimes outside of core hours and across the year. Under the guidance of the Disabilities Manager you will promote good practices across the institution.

Experience of tutoring and supporting students in a Higher Education setting is essential, as is the ability to work independently and as a team member.

The successful candidate will also have a good understanding of developments within the sector and demonstrate resilience in a time of change.

If you have these attributes, this is the post for you!

For an informal enquiries relating to the role please contact Rebecca Neblett, Disabilities Manager at r.neblett@surrey.ac.uk 01483 689766.
