IT Trainer/Coach

Returning to work after a break doesn’t have to be daunting. At QA, we want you to have a fulfilling career that works for you and your family – and we’ll support you as you relaunch your working life. 

We’re seeking tech trainers and coaches who love helping others to learn and accomplish their goals. This role offers returning parents the opportunity to utilise your existing skills but apply them in a completely different way. It’s the perfect career for parents returning to work, whether you’re experienced in a similar role or looking to retrain for a new career in teaching/education.

We’re offering this role as part of our Return | (Re)Train initiative – an exciting new programme to support returners, upskill talent for the tech sector and make getting back to work an exciting experience. 

The role

Our programmes and courses train up talent to meet employers’ tech and business skills needs and help learners take their own careers to the next level. At QA, we genuinely transform our learners’ lives, and in this role you’ll be part of that. Whether you’re teaching an apprentice their first line of code or supporting a new manager as they tackle the challenges of dispute management, you will be their teacher.

With our support, you’ll deliver tech course content through a combination of face-to-face, e-Learning and digital methods and coach learners to help them succeed – whether they’re highly qualified professionals or beginners looking to join the field. You’ll teach both scheduled/public and customised courses for relevant areas of QA’s tech portfolio.

This is an exciting, fulfilling role where you get to interact directly with learners to help them grow their skills and achieve their potential.

How we’ll support your return to work

  • A supportive workplace that accommodates your family responsibilities
  • Flexible working contracts – we can even offer you school holidays off
  • Training courses to help you learn new coaching skills or provide a refresher in the field
  • An assigned co-pilot/“buddy” to get you up to speed with our processes and award-winning tech courses

What we offer

  • Generous base salary of up to £35,000 as a Skills Coach and £56,000 as a Trainer (dependent on experience)
  • School holidays off (or ad hoc holiday bookings if that is better for you)
  • Unique return-to-work training programme (not mandatory but there for you should you want to use it)
  • Two days paid charity work for a charity of your choice
  • Three days of paid training from your choice of 1,200+ diverse QA courses
  • Gym membership and cycle to work scheme
  • Private pension

You are…

  • Passionate about helping, supporting and teaching others
  • Willing to learn
  • Confident at speaking to groups of people (perhaps in customer-facing roles) with strong presentation, interpersonal and communication skills and the ability to share your expertise/experience with others
  • Eligible to live and work in the UK
  • Able to plan and deliver against set learning and achievement targets

Who are we?

Headquartered in London with 20 more training centres nationwide, QA Group comprises four fast-growing divisions—QA Learning, QA Apprenticeships, QA Consulting and QA Higher Education—all of which deliver innovative, award-winning (2016 Top 20 IT Training Companies List) and ever-evolving skills solutions.
