Student Jobs

The College's Earn as You Learn (EAYL) scheme provides flexible working solutions for students and employers by facilitating staff for short term job assignments.

How it works

Jobs can last for as little as one hour and opportunities can become available at very short notice.  There are also longer-term vacancies that provide you with wide-ranging opportunities to do temporary work that does not interfere with your study commitments. EAYL enables you to develop useful skills and practical experience within the world of work.

Benefits of EAYL scheme

  • Work flexibly around your studies
  • Support in accessing temporary employment within Newham College and external employers
  • Gain valuable experience and develop transferable skillls for your future career
  • Exclusive access to unique opportunities

Working reliably

The registration process will include an induction and verification interview, which involves confirming your availability, skills, and the types of work you are interested in. 

You will be notified of jobs that match your availability and you will be expected to carry out the accepted assignments by turning up on time and doing the job to the best of your ability. You need to be reliable and will be graded for your efforts. If you gain a higher grade then you will get more work. 

If you have said you are available but fail to complete a job assignment, (without reasonable justification) you will be graded as being less reliable.

If you fail to complete three assignments consecutively you will be removed from the EAYL team.
