You’ll be working in one of the UK’s leading performing arts institutions. We enjoy a global reputation for the quality of our teaching, our world class facilities and an enviable track record of graduate employment.
Our Student Wellbeing and Disability Service offers professional advice and support to our diverse HE student population on a wide range of issues/needs which may inhibit their achievement or participation during their time with us. This includes specialist study skills support and counselling.
You will lead and co-ordinate this busy service, ensuring that team members are appropriately qualified and experienced and operate to relevant professional standards and codes of practice and have access to regular supervision.
You will be responsible for the initial assessment of students and signposting them to relevant support, both internal and external, including arranging for diagnostic assessments and also have a small caseload yourself. You will be responsible for ensuring that teaching staff are made aware of specific support needs and promoting good practice generally across the institution.
You will be passionate and committed about supporting inclusive learning. You will also need to be able to manage competing priorities effectively and to remain calm and functioning when dealing with students in distress. Excellent customer service skills and experience of working within a confidential setting are essential, as is a degree and a relevant professional qualification. You will, ideally, have significant post-qualification experience and where possible experience of student-centred services.
