ASP team member Leiden University
The Access and Support Platform of Leiden University is looking for new team members! For the upcoming academic year, we are searching for new members who are motivated to support and help students with disabilities get through their studies.
The main objective of ASP is to make higher education accessible for students with both physical and mental disabilities. Our team consists partly of people with and without a disability. We give advice, help and support to students with disabilities. Moreover, we also provide information and we create a community in which everyone feels safe, secure and supported.
As a team, we will divide tasks and these will consist of:
- advising students with a disability
- providing information about studying with a disability
- sharing tips and tricks
- working together with many other networks and organizations
- maintaining our Instagram page
- organising workshops, meetings and popcorners about themes relating to disability
- creating and building up a community
- collecting and shedding light on structural problems regarding studying with a disability and making these problems known to the University Board
- helping and supporting students with a disability in certain situations which they cannot solve themselves and/or need assistance with
What we offer offer you:
- gaining experience in a social network as member of a university platform
- flexible hours, 4-6 hours per week
- a monthly compensation of €180
- a meaningful possibility to really make a difference for people
- the possibility to help make higher education at Leiden University accessible to everyone
- the opportunity to obtain new skills regarding organisation, working in a diverse team and representing a community
- and of course, now and then (online) drinks or having fun with the team
What we ask:
- you (preferably) study at Leiden University (VU, UVA, Erasmus and Delft are not excluded)
- you excel in substantiating and making your own opinion clear
- you are empathetic
- you are a real team player
- your organisation and innovation skills are outstanding
- you are flexible
- you have the motivation to improve higher education
We are looking for both people who are experiencing a disability themselves, but also people without a disability. Balance is key and we believe that both will provide us with new insights about what is important to help every student who needs us as much as possible.
If you are interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact details, CV and a motivation letter by the 22th of August. We hope to hear from you soon!
