The Learning Resources and Academic Support Coordinator is responsible for maintaining and developing the Rambert School Library and the physical and virtual learning resources for the students and staff of the School. The post-holder also supports student learning through the provision of research and study skills.

All students write essays and reflective reports, deliver presentations, conduct scholarly research, and write a dissertation alongside intensive physical training or professional practice. The post-holder will support students throughout these processes, by identifying relevant scholarly sources, locating physical and virtual resources, understanding academic conventions, and improving their confidence with scholarly skills, vocabulary, referencing and more general study skills. 

Our students come from a variety of academic backgrounds and educational systems and a high proportion of students speak English as a second language. Our diverse cohort requires a robust and flexible learning support system to ensure that any barriers to learning and achievement are reduced.
