Salary: £28-40k OTE + Benefits
Location: Birmingham

With more than 20 years’ experience in professional services and training, our unique approach has helped to define the standard to which businesses meet the Apprenticeship in its new format.

Forging new relationships in this relatively fresh market, we have also leveraged links using our existing client base. As such, we’re leading the way in the delivery of commercial and technical Apprenticeships. Blending an approach using the latest technology, involving the virtual classroom as well as the physical, we deliver a range of programmes including the Team Leader Apprenticeship, IT Technical Sales and Operations Management.

Our offering includes the very best in learning resources and support. We’re looking for Skills Coaches that befit this environment. Rapidly growing within the Apprenticeship space, there is a fantastic opportunity for those with ambition and a strong work ethic.

This role is for experienced trainers or skills coaches who have delivered and supported learners through Commercial or Government funded learning programmes. As well as managing and overseeing your own team of Skills Coaches, you’ll be handling your own caseload of learners. The successful candidate will hold excellent time management skills, as the ability to prioritise tasks with authority is integral. 

Our unique approach has helped to define the standard to which businesses meet the Apprenticeship in its new format. Come and help us shape the Apprenticeship, and future, cost-effective talent for clients nationwide.  

The Opportunity:

We are looking for someone with experience of government funded or commercial training.

The role is home-based, although occasional office attendance will be required. You will be travelling in the field to visit your learners as you progress them through their apprenticeship courses. You will also be accompanying your group of Skills Coaches in the field in order to ensure they are being given the support they need. Your time will be divided between learners and assessors, as you will work to ensure that everything is being delivered to the highest possible standard. Within the role, you will be responsible for:
  • Progressing your caseload of learners, ensuring they have a portfolio of work ready to complete their EPA’s
  • Supporting and developing assessors in the field
  • Developing course material as and when required
  • Escalating challenges to C-level decision makers
  • Monitoring off-the-job learning amongst your caseload
  • Completing your own administrative responsibilities in accordance with Ofsted expectations, as well as ensuring the skills coaches you manage are doing the same
About the Company:

Having branched out into the emerging Apprenticeship Space, we are one of the UK's largest & most successful sales recruitment & training agencies. We’re a professional organisation that places a great deal of emphasis upon the steps beyond the EPA. It is crucial for us that the highest standards are maintained throughout the duration of each and every apprenticeship that we deliver.  

The Ideal Candidate:
  • Occupational competency in sales
  • A resilient and adaptable individual
  • Direct experience training learners in Team Leadership, Sales, Operational Management and/or IT Technical Sales.
  • Familiarity with coaching Functional Skills
  • Experience in overseeing or managing a team in a professional capacity
