Gaining real work experience is essential for students to develop the skills needed to get employment after college and this role will enable students to do just that! This is an excellent opportunity for an ambitious individual to gain teaching qualifications as you will be supported by National Star to gain up to certificate level.

Working across the Customer Services and StarPrint Printing Enterprise Teams, the successful candidate will support young people with learning or physical disabilities to learn the skills necessary to work in reception, customer service or administration roles. This will be done by effective role modelling for learners and other staff, careful assessment of students’ abilities and potential, creative carving of job tasks and imparting knowledge and learning to students.

Experience of job mentoring, teaching or supporting learning, particularly with young people with disabilities would be a distinct advantage, coupled with experience of reception or office work.

The role is term time plus additional weeks in the holiday periods on a rota basis to ensure support is maintained for students.
