Dyslexia Support Tutor (part-time)
18 June 2018 23:55
As part of the Disability Service, the Dyslexia Support Tutor will be part of a team responsible for providing specialist 1:1 study skills tuition and SpLD screenings. Approximately two-thirds of the tutor’s time will be spent working directly with students. In addition, the tutor will be responsible for administrative tasks and will spend time on project work and training to support the development of the University’s dyslexia support provision. The balance of contact vs. non-contact time may vary depending on seasonal changes in student demand.
Tutors work closely with each other and the Dyslexia Co-ordinator to whom they report. The challenge will be to develop the roles and build effective working relationships with the staff based in the Colleges where they work. There will be opportunities (working with managers and the rest of the team) to develop processes and procedures and training to underpin effective delivery of support.
Tutors work at one or two College sites. The current vacancy will be based at London College of Fashion but expected to work flexibly across college sites.
University of the Arts London is a vibrant world centre for innovation, drawing together six Colleges with international reputations in art, design, fashion, communication and performing arts.
Every position within the University plays an important part in shaping future creative professionals, and impacts on the future of so many creative industries. You will get to be a part of this future by transferring your specialist knowledge on to other keen creatives whilst developing your own skills.
You will hold a recognised teaching qualification and have a specialist qualification in the area of SpLD support, recognised by either ADSHE, Patoss or the British Dyslexia Association. You will hold professional membership with a professional body (e.g. Patoss, ADSHE, the British Dyslexia Association, or the Dyslexia Guild) that enables you to meet NMH/DSA-QAG registration guidelines.
You will have comprehensive training or a qualification in autism, or be willing to complete National Autistic Society training modules.
You will have experience of teaching students within a Higher Education/Further Education setting. Equally, the successful candidate will work effectively in a team, be able to build and nurture good working relationships and be committed to inclusion.
In return, University of the Arts London offers generous leave, a final salary pension and a commitment to your continuing personal development and training in an environment that encourages excellence, creativity and diversity. Relocation assistance is available.
