Here at East Sussex College Group we understand that for some young people, moving on to Higher Education is a challenge.
As a coach on the ‘Go Further’ programme, you will help identify and address issues and barriers for young people progressing into Higher Education and Higher Apprenticeships.
You’ll be delivering a coaching programme which might include group or 121 sessions with our students, raising their aspirations, helping them transition successfully on to their new courses and signposting onto other sources of support, advice and guidance.
Based in our Lewes campus, you’ll liaise with colleagues across the East Sussex College Group at our sites in Eastbourne and Hastings so the ability to travel between sites on occasion will be needed.
With great English and Maths skills (Level 2 as a minimum) you’ll also have a Level 6 CEIAG qualifications or be willing to work towards this.
Drawing on your previous experience of supporting students in FE in a safe, respectful and appropriate manner, you’ll bring a coaching approach to your work with young people, building trusting relationships to enable them to fulfil their potential.
