City College is a proudly inclusive college and offers a wide range of courses to a diverse range of students.  Student support plays a critical role in the success of our students and is something we prioritise.  Reflecting national trends, we have seen a significant increase in the number of students enrolling onto City College programmes who are experiencing difficulties related to their mental health. 

As a result of this, we are seeking to appoint an experienced, skilled and qualified mental health practitioner to join our additional learning support team to provide support to a case load of City College students facing mental health challenges. The post holder will also need to provide responsive support and be part of preventative strategies to better equip staff and students.  An awareness and experience of supporting safeguarding would also be desirable.
