  • Strength, patience and enthusiasm in working with students studying Visual Art

  • Experience and skill to capture and edit photos and videos (using Mac devices) for the documentation of students’ work
  • An understanding of the social and emotional supports necessary for supporting students in their studies
  • A willingness to support the overall goals of the Creative Industries department and work as part of a cohesive team
  • Well-developed communication skills, to work smoothly with students, their teachers and other staff
