You will provide pastoral and educational support to young people on a group and 1-1 basis and ensure that Prince’s Trust paperwork and ILRs are completed in a timely manner. You will also support learners in the setting, achieving and reviewing of SMART targets. You will need to have the flexibility to work from our Brighton, Hove, Worthing and Shoreham team bases.
