Joining us as Learning Coach, you will support or mentor learners with social, emotional and mental health needs, a disability, learning difficulty or medical condition, and/or with ESOL, English and Maths support needs, to enable them to successfully complete their qualifications, course and where appropriate, education and health and care plan outcomes.

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone looking to begin a career in education, especially for those who are recent graduates and looking to become a teacher.
