Team: College Tutor Team

As one of the largest sixth form colleges in London (more than 2,500 students), we are a non-selective, diverse and secular college, proud to have launched over 50,000 young people onto university, training and employment since we were founded in 1992. Our results for A-Levels and vocational study are impressive – in 2018, a massive 90% of applicants progressed to university and we were also rated by Ofsted as ‘outstanding’ for Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare (PDBW) and ‘good’ for overall effectiveness.
The college combines great facilities with quality teaching and high standards, including a new multi-million pound building, providing state of the art technology enabled learning resource centre, drama studio and café.
The college has several vacancies for tutors to join our College Tutor Team. To work as a tutor at NewVIc you will be committed to student retention and wellbeing. You will work well with 16-19 year olds and contribute to a student-centred environment. You will have a genuine interest in young people and how they become resilient adults.
Tutors are responsible for supporting students to realise their academic and personal potential. The tutor’s role is key: they challenge students on their progress, attendance and work rate, as well as providing clear advice and support to ensure students get the best from their time at College. Tutors also monitor performance and build self-esteem and confidence through a rapport based on trust, honesty and respect. Tutors track and monitor attendance and punctuality and implement the College’s learning and behaviour policy to help students meet NewVIc’s expectations and succeed. Moreover, tutors also help students to become informed, independent learners and support them in completing applications for university and training.
All students are assigned a tutor with whom they have group tutorials and individual progress reviews. Students learn how to review their own progress and set SMART targets to improve; how to research careers and work towards their next steps; how to keep themselves safe and make safe choices; what British values are and what these mean for them at college and living in the UK; an understanding of equality and diversity.
In addition to the tutorial programme students have access to an impressively wide range of extra-curricular enrichment experiences aimed at developing students’ future employability skills. Tutors also contribute to this enrichment programme by delivering at least one enrichment activity.
Progress Tutors should be self-motivated and organised, with a flexible approach and the ability to multi-task. Excellent written English is essential to the role as is the ability to deliver group sessions, one-to-one support and enrichment activities. They are also expected to play an active role in the development of tutoring across the college and to participate in training to help them develop their skills and help them become more expert.
Tutors will be managed by the Tutorial Manager and usually specialise in one or two areas. They tutor across at least two levels. We currently have a particular need for tutors to work in Foundation Learning at level 1 and 2 as well as vacancies for level 2 and 3.
