Behavioural Skills Coach (Intervention Progress Coach)

Job Role:

Here at Activate Learning we transform lives through learning and as part of our re-imagined curriculum we have created the role of Intervention Progress Coach. 

Disrupted learning has meant that students are out of the habit of learning. The role of the intervention progress coach is to work with small groups of students who require support to engage successfully with their programme. These students will be given a baseline assessment to enable the intervention progress coach to restore effective learning habits and behaviours through targeted input. Small group tuition will be used to support the development of these educational attributes and to improve the students’ ability to learn and reach their potential.

You work flexibly with identified groups of students within our Technology faculty to:

· Facilitate small group practical vocational sessions within technology or construction trades subjects in order for students to catch up on lost practical skills

· Support students to engage in improved learning through best practice workshop skills including safe use of tools and equipment

· Complete all appropriate records of individual sessions, track intended and actual interventions and ensure that this data is recorded and reported.

· Work in partnership with the faculty Progress Coach and where appropriate attend meetings with internal support colleagues, parents/guardians.

This is a full-time fixed term opportunity until July 2022, based at our Technology campus in Blackbird Leys, Oxford.

About you and what you need to be successful?

We are looking for highly motivated and resilient individuals with coaching experience to facilitate focused personal development sessions. Core to this role will be the provision of 1-1 and group coaching to provide individualised positive learning habits and attitudes support and targeted interventions to a caseload of students. 

This is a very responsive role, which requires individuals to demonstrate resilience, determination and an ability to support students with their personal development, learning and careers whilst keeping them engaged to achieve.  

Ideally you will have some experience of working with teenagers or young adults and be confident dealing with students who need support managing their behaviour. A background in youth work would be beneficial but certainly not essential. Your communication and interpersonal skills will be outstanding and demonstrable experience of deliver coaching sessions is imperative.

What are the benefits of this role?

There really is no limit in terms of your personal growth, development and career by joining one of the largest Education Providers in the UK. You will have a comprehensive development program as part of induction together with peer to peer learning, a formal development plan and support at every step of the way to set you up for success.

We offer a buddy system, a digital induction module and a close-knit community of experts and leaders across the Group to support the sharing of best practice and encourage individual growth. We have extensive technology in place to develop digital capability and flexible working arrangements will be considered for the right candidate.
