Testimonials from Smiles&Miles tutors

“I have very much enjoyed my experience tutoring through Smiles and Miles. It is great to be able to really understand the difficulties a child is having with their work, and to spend time on overcoming those problem areas, through learning activities that are truly tailored to the individual. Seeing children grow in confidence as they progress gives me a feeling of satisfaction, and the rewards of seeing children happy in their learning and becoming more motivated to “have a go” is a level of job satisfaction that is hard to come by.”

Hazel KS1 and KS2 tutor

“It’s really rewarding work with a small group of children or individuals as their progress is evident very quickly. It is also so refreshing to teach without a PowerPoint and it really enhances your ability to explain key concepts and ideas.”

In response to the demand for more healthcare professionals, Selby College has introduced a brand-new Higher National Certificate and Diploma in Healthcare Practice, which aims to equip individuals with the knowledge, understanding and skills for success in employment in healthcare practice and related areas.

Upon completion of the Diploma in Healthcare Practice, graduates are able to progress on to a range of careers in the sector including care coordinator, health educator, health improvement officer, public health practitioner, support worker or a wellbeing coordinator.

This comes following a report from Prospects, an expert in graduate careers, which revealed that the vacancies which are the hardest to fill are in the healthcare, public administration and defence, IT, human resources and social care and welfare sectors[1].

“The theme of this year’s National Careers Week was ‘the future of work’, which couldn’t be more fitting given the current climate. We have seen a real shift in the jobs market since the pandemic began, highlighting the need for more highly-skilled workers in healthcare, IT, human resources, business, criminal justice, science and other professions,” said Stephen Mulligan, Assistant Director for Higher Education at Selby College. “Our degree-level programmes are designed with specific industries in mind, so that we can help our students develop into professionals who are able to meet the demands of their future employers, as well as enjoy life-long careers in their chosen profession.”

Also new for the academic year of 2021-2022, Selby College is now offering a  which aims to provide students with the key skills and knowledge which are being sought after by the sector.

Selby college students graduatingExploring both the social and personal aspects of crime, the course will examine some of the most serious concerns we face as a society, including what causes crime and criminal behaviour, can crime be prevented, how and why should we punish offenders and how does criminal justice link to social justice.

For those seeking to study a criminology degree, but don’t have the traditional entry requirements, the College’s brand-new Access to Higher Education Diploma in Criminal Justice enables students to progress on to higher education – opening up careers in the police, youth offending services, prison service, probationary service or victim and offender support.

“The College’s Access to Higher Education Diplomas provide aspiring professionals with a foundation to develop a range of academic and study skills, in order to enter Higher Education,” said Steve. “We offer subsequent degrees in line with our Access Diplomas, providing students with the perfect progression route on to their next step of degree-level study, before completing and going on to rewarding careers in their chosen profession,” added Steve.

Selby College offers Access to Higher Education courses in criminal justice and health science professions.

The College also works in partnership with leading universities such as the University of Hull, the University of Huddersfield and validating body Pearson, to deliver high-quality degree-level programmes in a range of subjects, including Art & Design, Business, Childhood Studies, Digital Technologies, Education, Engineering, Social Science and Sport.
