Our client has an exciting new opportunity for a Job Coach to work with their amazing learners supporting them into employment.

Joining their experienced Job Coach team, you will be working with their learners with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities to find opportunities and support them into employment or voluntary work that meets their aspirations. Based primarily at their main site in Ullenwood on the outskirts of Cheltenham, you will also be supporting students at their Greensteps Learning Centre in Cheltenham. They need you to have access to your own transport to visit other sites and to support your learners through their work placement programmes.

You will work with the individual learner to develop their skills, confidence, and independence to take their first step into employment.  Your role will be varied and will include visiting employers and supporting learners to acquire and maintain employability skills through training and work experience, on a 1:1 basis or in small groups. Training and support will of course be provided to develop your skills.

They have opportunities for learners both with external organisations and within the college and the role may include supporting students to manage a small college store, including taking responsibility for end of day reconciliation which offers a great opportunity for students to build practical work, academic and lifelong learning skills.

You will bring enthusiasm, energy, and commitment, along with great communication skills, initiative, self-motivation, and good written skills. You will seek and establish opportunities with employers using your influence and networking skills to broker work outcomes. You will build rapport and support the learner and employer with the work placement, whilst also linking with parent/carers, and other teams.

Keeping sight of each learner’s individual goals, you will plan practical work and lifelong learning skills that meet their needs, administering accurate and detailed records of assessment and learner progress.

In this role you will be working 38 hours per week over 42 weeks with some flexible working during college holidays to maintain service to learners and 52-week programmes.
