The Job

overall goal within the business will be coaching and development of apprentices through the Apprenticeship Standards, tracking their progression through the apprenticeship journey. You will work alongside the employer to develop the plans for how and when the on-programme and end-point assessments will be delivered and assess the apprentices progress towards the development of their knowledge, skills, and behaviours. You will also work closely with the Service Delivery Manager, Quality and Curriculum Manager and Sales teams to establish effective ways of learning to improve learner satisfaction and success rates.

The role will require you to adapt to different ways of working and establish individual learning needs and identify best practices and bring individualism and personality to a standardised course. This role will entail predominantly one to one coaching with apprentices. The company have harnessed the latest technologies to provide a remote learning product that means the learners can benefit from all our training and development programmes wherever they are. They are currently delivering a remote model of learning; however, the role can also involve field work visiting the apprentices on their employment sites and getting to know the environment they are working in.
