Fast Forward are seeking a Progressions and Workskills Coach to offer support and guidance to students so that they develop, not only employability skills, but skills that enable them to move into sustained employment or a higher course within the main curriculum areas. 

The post holder will also facilitate learning and oversee the smooth running of the Community/Social Action projects for students who face barriers to learning and work.  You will support young people to ensure they understand the world of employment and the behaviours expected of them as an employee and help them develop these skills in the classroom settings. 

Fast Forward students can have a range of complex support needs and therefore, good communication skills and experience of working with young people, including those with disabilities, who face a range of barriers to learning and employment, is essentials.  

You do not need to have previous experience in this role but have a clear passion for providing outstanding support to ensure learners get what they need to achieve. The role will require you to keep up to date with the training and skills needed within those sectors and to use this knowledge to inform innovative delivery models that genuinely meet the needs of the students. 

This role may be eligible for the ‘Taking Teaching Further (TTF)’ programme, which supports industry professionals coming to teach in further education. The support which could be provided through the TTF programme includes enrolment on to a 2 year, Level 5 Diploma in Education & Training (DET) and an initial reduction in teaching workload 

In return, Abingdon & Witney College offer excellent benefits to our employees including generous pension and holiday schemes (with potential Christmas closure days), continued professional development, flexible working options, corporate gym membership, cycle/tech scheme and much more.
