Based in Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester, Tameside College is a further education college that offers a wide range of courses including Full-Time, Part-Time, Apprenticeships and University Level. We aim to give all our students an exceptional experience.

We believe in excellence and we back that up with high standards, real working environments and great teaching. We also believe that attending college is about more than achieving a qualification, important though that is. That is why we aim to give every person the opportunity to develop their full potential in a supportive and friendly environment.

Joining us as a Learning Facilitator, you will ensure that all users of the Learning Hubs are provided with a professional enquiry and support service, and that all learners are encouraged to develop independent learning skills while being supported with their academic studies. This role is term time only.

Responding to a range of enquiries from both staff and students on the use of the Learning Hub facilities including the library catalogue, electronic resources and use of IT facilities in person, by telephone or via email, you must ensure that all learners are supported with their academic studies including help with referencing, exam skills, structuring essays and use of resources. Taking an active role in the student induction programmes, guides and tours, you will liaise with curriculum areas to facilitate the identification, acquisition and development of reading lists and materials and contribute to the general upkeep of a tidy and well-maintained learning environment.

With sound knowledge of IT applications including internet and electronic resources and Microsoft Office, you will have experience of working in a modern Learning Center or Library and of supporting / facilitating learners in an education environment. Excellent customer care skills and the ability to work on own initiative are essential requirements for the role and you should have the flexibility, enthusiasm and a willingness to undertake a complex variety of tasks.
