Role of Advocate:
The Advocate provides individual support and guidance to learners in the promotion and achievement of progression in the areas of further training, apprenticeships, education and employment. The Advocate works alongside the learner in order to ensure that any barriers to progression are prevented and addressed. Career path planning, Work Experience, Skill Set Assessment, Interview preparation, and Job seeking skills are all worked on. Personal development and well being are also addressed with learners through the Advocacy Service. The Advocate works closely with local networks and agencies in the promotion of opportunity and availability of service to support young people in the area.
Role of the Counsellor:
Our counsellor is available one day per week to meet with each learner. This is a free and confidential service to support the well being and mental health of the learner.Appointments take place on site and it is a good way to normalise accessing supports for our mental health and well-being.
Role of Numeracy & Literacy Tutor:
As the Literacy and Numeracy Instructor I offer individual support in reading, writing and numeracy skills for adults. I develop individual learning plans based on the student’s ability. I collaborate with the other instructors to promote learning and implement teaching practices to support each student based on their learning style. Therefore, I analyse the student’s needs and provide effective solutions to help develop their literacy and numeracy skills. Support provided in this area is essential for each student, as literacy and numeracy skills are important for accessing the broader curriculum in the centre because they are used in many aspects of our lives.
Role of your Key-worker:
A member of the instruction team fulfils the role of key worker for each learner.The aim of key working is to support learners through their training programme and to help create good and effective relationships between staff and learners.The key develops an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) for each learner, meet at scheduled times to review progress and update all other staff on learner progress/problems at case conference.
