In addition, you will provide academic skills support to students at Leeds Beckett through in-curriculum teaching, online learning and one-to-one appointments, working closely with our Academic Skills Tutors. You will build strong partnerships with a range of stakeholders, including academic staff in the Schools, professional services colleagues, as well as across the whole of Libraries and Learning Innovation.

You should have excellent communication and negotiation skills, and proven success in relationship management.  You will also have experience of using learning technologies to support students in their academic skills development.
