Your role

As a skills coach you will be managing a case load of up to 50 learners on our Software Development Apprenticeship programme. You will be supporting learners through successful completion of their programme by providing guidance and support to them and their employers.

You will maintain regular contact with your learners and their employers to demonstrate formal progress and planning of progression for the learner.

Having previous experience in a similar role would be a bonus, but if you have not, don’t fret; as part of our commitment to you we will be putting you through your CAVA training – making you a fully qualified Skills Coach!

This is a unique and exciting opportunity to truly use your knowledge and expertise within systems and networking whilst helping and encouraging learners through their apprenticeship programme – all whilst working autonomously and managing your own time!

Your team

Based in Bristol, you will be required to work closely with the Assessment Manager and Head of Delivery. The position will require travel across multiple sites (depending on where your learners are based) so having your own transport is a must!

Financial package and benefits

We are offering a competitive financial package + car allowance, Private Pension as well as 25 days holiday, 2 days paid Charity work each year for a charity of your choice, 3 days of additional training from our very own course selection (1,200 to be precise), subsidised gym membership and cycle to work scheme.

Your background

You will need to hold a degree, higher education qualification or significant industry experience in Software Development (Java/Opensource/C#/SQL), with a sound technical knowledge and understanding of different softwares. It is a given with the nature of the role that excellent communication is key, with a desire to work in a coaching/mentoring environment. Holding an existing CAVA/A1 qualification would be ideal, however as mentioned, it is not essential.
