Job Description

Assessment Support Executive

Description

At Pearson, we’re committed to a world that’s always learning and to our talented team who makes it all possible. From bringing lectures vividly to life to turning textbooks into laptop lessons, we are always re-examining the way people learn best, whether it’s one child in our own backyard or an education community across the globe. We are bold thinkers and standout innovators who motivate each other to explore new frontiers in an environment that supports and inspires us to always be better. By pushing the boundaries of technology — and each other to surpass these boundaries — we create seeds of learning that become the catalyst for the world’s innovations, personal and global, large and small.

ASSESSMENT SUPPORT EXECUTIVE

Our mission is clear: to become one of the UK’s leading universities for in-depth industry engagement. As a pioneering Higher Education Institution (HEI), we’re transforming industry today and tomorrow, by designing and delivering education powered by industry experience.

At Pearson College London, industry engagement drives us; it’s not just what we do, it’s who we are. And it is what will take us, and our students, into the future. Every university focuses on “employability” - what sets us apart is the level of industry engagement that we’re able to offer. Industry engagement is at the core of everything that we do; our industry partners deliver workshops for our students, they also design, develop and deliver our courses, offer our students internship opportunities, set them live briefs and attend their end of term showcases.

When you combine higher education and industry, everyone benefits. Especially when there’s a need for graduates to stand out from the crowd in a competitive market.

Operations: About the team

This role sits with the Operations Department at Pearson College London. The Operations Department is a varied team responsible for Online Learning, Library Services, IT and Short Course Sales. The Operations team works hard to support our students and our academic colleagues, constantly innovating to ensure we all benefit from the latest technologies and approaches. We’re a student-focused, collaborative and hard-working team working in a fast paced environment. As a growing organisation, we are working in a fast paced environment but one where we nurture talent, share ideas and work collaboratively.

About the role

  • Checking and reviewing turnitin submission boxes to help ensure that they are open at the correct time
  • Contributing to the content on our Online Learning Environment around assessments
  • Providing analysis on assessment performance.

Why Pearson College London?

Our Escape Studios undergraduate degrees team received a Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence (CATE) finalist certificate recognising our collaboration with industry to develop programmes for the benefit of our students who are now benefiting from the ​innovative ​approach to course development.

Real world ready:We collaborate with industry thought leaders and experts to anticipate industry needs. We create experiences that develop savvy, work-ready graduates, who are ready for the real-world - today and tomorrow.

Team rules! Students, industry, colleagues, thought-leaders - collaboration, inclusion and transparency are crucial to success.
