If appointed you will be expected to plan, organise and promote activities and excursions, as well as encourage and motivate students to participate so that they get the full benefit from their stay.
An outlined activity programme is prepared and coordinated by the Activity and Excursion Manager(s). Activity Leaders are responsible for promoting, organising and running all activities and events, both on and off campus, under the guidance of the Activity and Excursion Manager(s). They may also need to supervise other staff when leading activities and excursions, encouraging them to take a full and active part.
Activity Leaders work a six-day week and receive one full day off per week. Duties include, but are not exclusive to, the following: planning and leading activities and excursions, welfare and supervision duties, transfer duties. The time allocated to each of these tasks will be at the discretion of the management team at the centre. You must be flexible and willing to undertake any task as directed.
The Activity Manager will allocate your working times and tasks. Paid hours are direct contact hours with students which may be spread out throughout the day.
Non-residential staff receive meals when allocated meal supervision duties.
To work with St Andrew's College Language Schools, the employee understands that he/she must provide a Disclosure (PVG to work in Scotland/'Enhanced' DBS to work in England) and that this must be dated within three months from the start date of employment in 2019 (or within a year of having worked with St Andrew's College Language Schools). If the employee has been working abroad for more than 3 months, he/she must provide the equivalent 'police check' from that country. Whichever one the employee chooses to supply, it must be specific to their suitability to work with under 18s.
Please bear in mind that the procedure to receiving a Disclosure check can take up to 18 weeks. In the event that my disclosure is still pending at the commencement of my employment, the employee agrees to comply with St Andrew’s College Language Schools, Safeguarding and Recruitment and Selection policies. The employee understands that all new Disclosure checks made through St Andrew’s College Language Schools are payable by the employee and will be deducted from my salary. This may range from £18 to £65 depending on the Disclosure I need.
The employee must also provide an email address and contact telephone number of 3 referees who can verify their suitability for the post and suitability to work with those aged under 18.
All activity staff undergo a paid induction (£7.50/hour), and you may be asked to start work after this induction. Both the induction and the work afterwards are paid. Attendance at the induction is an essential part of your employment.
