Role of the Learning Assistant


In this role you will act as a learning assistant for any student needing one-to-one support with their learning or confidence. This might include helping a student take notes or assist them with written exercises, or share coping techniques to help them engage with the material (for example, breathing exercises).

You will be required to engage with a wide range of people, be friendly and welcoming, have good verbal and written communication skills, be able to demonstrate empathy, patience, good listening skills and have a non-judgemental approach.
