Your role in our journey
As Curriculum Information Support Officer. You will work out in the communities of Barnsley to engage with key partners and potential learners on behalf of our service. Your skills and experience will motivate and inspire members of the community to engage in learning and reach their potential, as you support them throughout their learner journey. This will include those who are vulnerable and socially disadvantaged. You will have experience of dealing with nervous people with empathy and patience to support them in those first steps back into education. You will plan and deliver an effective, high quality information, advice and guidance service to learners and potential learners across the Service to ensure they are enrolled onto the right course for them. Your work will support the achievement of the Service’s priorities linked to participation, retention, achievement, success and outcomes. A working knowledge of external support agencies such as financial and welfare would also be desirable.
