The role is specific to ensuring we engage with the Roma students and parents of our cohort.

To ensure this sound communication skills and understanding of cultural conventions are paramount.

The role is multi-faceted, including supporting students in lessons, in small groups and leading interventions; communicating with parents and students on daily; administrating and documenting meetings; liaising with tutors and representatives from the pastoral team.

All duties will be carried out within recognised procedures or guidelines and the teacher will be available for support and guidance.

The post holder will be expected to have some expertise/specialism. The post holder must have the ability to communicate in English and Roma.

There will be some need to interpret information or situations and to solve varied problems. More complex problems will be referred to line manager.
