Dyslexia Support Tutor
The role of the Dyslexia Support Tutor is to provide one-to-one specialist study skills support to students, tailored to individual requirements and designed to develop skills and facilitate independent learning.
The postholder will work 600 hours per year, normally over 3 days per week during term time, although flexibility is required to meet student needs and some hours may be required during the summer vacation.
The Dyslexia Support Tutor role is situated within the Library and Learning Support team, reporting to the Head of Library and Learning Support. We are a small, friendly team, who aim to provide a visible and inspiring service which is inclusive and accessible. The service includes library services, information literacy, study skills and dyslexia/SpLD support.
The successful candidate will provide one-to-one support which may include assisting students to overcome difficulties with acquiring, recalling and retaining information in relation to written and spoken language, and overcoming memory, organisational, attention and numeracy difficulties faced in a higher education context. Tutors also undertake dyslexia screenings and refer students to a Specialist Teacher for diagnostic assessment as appropriate.
The ideal candidate will have experience of delivering dyslexia/SpLD support to students in higher education, and of creating work plans and other appropriate, confidential records in compliance with the DSA-QAG Quality Assurance Framework for the provision of Non-Medical Help. Additionally, as Dyslexia Support Tutors spend the majority of their time delivering tutorials, an ability to work flexibly and independently is crucial.
Candidates must have a full/professional membership with one of the following professional bodies: ADSHE, BDA, PATOSS or Dyslexia Guild.
