Assistive Technology Trainers (£30-£35 per hour dependant on location)

Daisy Training support students in Higher Education in receipt of disabled student allowance (DSA). We have a valued team of experienced Non-Medical Helper (NMH) staff committed to helping students in Higher Education to achieve their best academically. We have vacancies for various NMH Workers, especially Assistive Technology (AT) Trainers to join our expanding team across Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Bristol, Dorset, Wales and London.

The role:
Assistive Technology Trainers train HEI students on assistive software and equipment that they have been allocated to assist them on their course of study. You will need to have experience of training in these software applications or a commitment to learning the software prior to working with students. Training is delivered in 1-2 hour appointment sessions, by arrangement with the students, either on campus, in their own homes or a suitable study space. Students receive a package of training for the length of their course. Some students may wish to have all of their training at the beginning, but they can space their training out across the whole of their course and access it when needed. As an NMH Worker, you are required to undergo some online training modules, such as Disability Awareness, Safeguarding and Data Protection or evidence that you have studied these compulsory modules elsewhere (with a CPD certificate). You must also have your own car and a UK driving licence so that you can travel to appointments with students. You will also need a current DBS check and Public Liability Insurance, but more information can be given about this if you wish to take on the role.

Assistive Technology (AT) trainers need awareness and knowledge of the range of assistive technologies that students are given to assist them at college. You may also have completed a teaching or training certificate or have experience of tutoring, training or teaching 1:1 or in groups.

Assistive technology software include mind mapping, text to speech and speech to text, notetaking software and use of digital recorders. Students also may need training in use of Microsoft Office, Internet Browsers, Printers, Scanners and associated software.

It would be helpful to have experience of working with students with a disability and and students in Higher Education, but training can be given.

Working Conditions:
The working hours are determined by appointment between you and the student and depend on the number of students you are allocated. Generally support is given in term time only, but sometimes you may be required to support students in the summer. NMH Support Workers currently employed on a part-time self-employed basis. In order to take on this role, you must be registered self-employed with HMRC and have a unique tax reference. Please contact us if you wish to apply for the role of AT Trainer.
