This is an exciting time to join the college and play a key role supporting young people and adults as part of the delivery team for Thrive, the Suffolk Skills and Employment Service project. Funded by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund and being delivered on behalf of a consortium of Suffolk Local Authorities, this project will deliver a highly localised and responsive programme of support to young people not in education, employment or training (NEET) and adults who are not in work. The project is being led by Suffolk New College and being delivered in partnership with other colleges and VCSE organisations.

You will find yourself joining a supportive team environment that is committed to giving young people and adults the best experience possible and, as a Progression Coach you will have responsibility for supporting people who have barriers to successful progression to develop their plans for employment or training, offering access to the college’s network of employers, training programmes, other education providers and apprenticeships as well as to obtain an education, employment or training (EET) outcome.

If you have a passion for supporting young people and/or adults and providing careers inspiration and guidance, with the ability to encourage, motivate and inspire people, we want to hear from you! There are three posts in total for this project and we will consider applications from either full time or part time (0.5 FTE) applicants.

Due to the nature of this role access to personal transport is essential in order to travel to both our campuses and community locations within the County. If using your own vehicle, it is a requirement for your car insurance to cover business use and evidence of this will be requested by finance before any travel claims are paid.

Suffolk New College is a multi-campus site therefore you may be required to work at and travel between campuses.
At Suffolk New College, we promote the culture of BeSNC. Implementing BeSNC is not just a choice; it's a commitment to providing the best possible environment for our learners to thrive. It's a commitment to nurturing an inclusive and supportive community where each student, staff and community member can reach their full potential.
