Welfare Coordinators are responsible for acting as a Group Leader for individual students, which includes making sure that they are attending classes, activities, holding their contact details and personal information and being contactable at all times in case of an emergency. Part of the role is supervisory; Welfare Coordinators must ensure that Group Leaders are monitoring their own students. A crucial part of the role is to be on duty five nights per week, as well as supervising students during their free time.
The Welfare Coordinator is responsible for general administration duties relating to the running of the course on campus, working closely with and under the guidance of the Centre Manger. They will undertake administrative tasks (detailed in but not exclusive to those listed in the Main Duties and Responsibilities section of this document) as necessary.
As the post involves administrative duties, strong administrative and organisational skills are required. The Welfare Coordinator will work a six-day week. All full-time staff receive one full day off per week.
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 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 the employment.
