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 2019, a massive 90% of applicants progressed to university and we were also rated by Ofsted in 2018 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.
We have exciting 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.
You will support students to realise their academic and personal potential by challenging them on their progress, attendance and work rate, as well as providing clear advice and support to ensure they get the best from their time at College. You will also monitor performance and build self-esteem and confidence through a rapport based on trust, honesty and respect as well as tracking and monitoring attendance and punctuality. Implementing the College’s learning and behaviour policy to help students meet NewVIc’s expectations and succeed is also key.
You 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. You are also expected to play an active role in the development of tutoring across the college and to participate in training to help students develop their skills and become more expert.
Tutors usually specialise in one or two areas and you will tutor across at least two levels. We currently have a particular need for tutors to work in Foundation Learning at levels 1 and 2 as well as vacancies for levels 2 and 3.
