A vacancy has arisen in our Learning Support Department and we are looking to appoint a self-motivated and skilled Learning Support Co-ordinator to join our team.

This role oversees the provision of additional learning support for a cohort of students (18+ years) with identified Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) or whose first language is not English who attend our courses at Spurgeon’s College, be it on a ministerial training track, a counselling course or on one of our Network of Hope courses.

The Learning Support Co-ordinator will manage and work with a team of volunteers who provide 1-2-1 learning support for our SEND students.

The role will include a mixture of face to face and virtual meetings with students, depending on the issues at hand. Although home and flexible working will be offered as part of this role, there will be a requirement to be on site at arranged times in term time when students are in the building to provide face to face assistance.

Candidates will need to be able to demonstrate that they have a proven track record of working with adults with SEND, be an excellent communicator both verbally and in writing and be able to work collaboratively with internal and external stakeholders.

The role sits within the academic department and the Academic Director line manages the Learning Support Co-ordinator role.

Spurgeon’s College has a worldwide reputation for its work in Christian theological education. Its mission is to train men and women for Christian mission, ministry and leadership in the contemporary world.
