We are looking for two individuals to join Nottingham Business School’s growing Executive MBA on a part time basis as Workplace Tutors.
The Executive MBA, which is underpinned by the Senior Leadership Degree Apprenticeship, has a strong reputation and attracts learners from across the East Midlands region and nationally.
The post holders will be required to further enhance this reputation and to help further develop its offering.
The primary role of the Workplace Tutor is to act as the main point of contact for learners undertaking a higher education apprenticeship or work placement opportunity.
You will lead on and manage a schedule of face to face contacts, visiting learners in their workplace setting (when possible) to undertake progress reviews or conducting contacts via Microsoft Teams or similar.
During contacts you will coach and support learners in both their academic and professional development throughout their MBA journey.
You will act as the main link between on-campus academic staff and employers, producing and contributing to reports relating to learner progress, assessing the quality of the workplace learning experience and maintaining records for compliance purposes.
You will support the students with the development of their assessed e-portfolios which they will build throughout the duration of their MBA and you will play a significant role in the assessment process.
You will also play an integral role in the management of the employer / university relationship by developing and managing positive relationships with employers.
You will have a degree in Business related field, or a closely related discipline together with experience of working in Higher Level Apprenticeships and / or UK Higher Education sector.
Previous or current organisational experience in a managerial capacity is essential. It is also desirable that you will be a Chartered member of a relevant professional body and have experience of working as mentor in an organisational setting or in providing academic or pastoral support.
In addition to the experience stated above, and within other associated documents, your ability to communicate effectively, enthuse and motivate students, and to further develop the overall student learning experience is seen as vitally important.
You will be required to visit students and apprentices at work sites nationally at least annually as regulations allow. All other contact will be via Microsoft Teams or similar.
