The Isle of Wight Education Federation was established to harness the very best education practice within two large secondary schools and a large A Level sixth-form centre of almost 500 students, to create a culture of continual improvement with increasingly successful outcomes for young people across the Island.
 
Although this post is primarily based at The Island VI Form, the Federation comprises Carisbrooke College, Medina College and The Island VI Form and candidates should, therefore, be prepared to work across the three sites as necessary. Appropriate vehicle business insurance will therefore be required.
 
The Governing Board of the Isle of Wight Education Federation is now seeking to appoint a Student Support Services Manager to manage and develop an efficient and highly effective team of Student Support Service Officers (SSSOs) to ensure all VI Form students achieve their full potential. Primarily this will be achieved through the provision of appropriate support, advice and guidance prior to starting their course and during their studies to enable students to progress on to further study or employment. A crucial part of the role will be to ensure the VI Form hears and responds to the “Voice of the Learner”.
 
We believe that this role offers the successful candidates the chance to make a significant difference and it will help us to continue on our upward trajectory.
 
The Colleges are fast-paced, fun and caring environments in which to work and there are excellent opportunities for personal and professional growth and development. If you feel you have what it takes to be part of our dynamic team, we would be delighted to hear from you.
 
For further information and an application pack, please visit our website at www.iif.org.uk. Completed applications should be submitted to HR@iwef.org.uk or posted directly to Medina College. Please note that we cannot accept applications which are not submitted on the official application forms and we do not accept CVs under any circumstances.
 
The Governing Board of the Isle of Wight Education Federation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share in this commitment.
 
The Governing Board of the Isle of Wight Education Federation is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
