Performance Coach - Leadership and Management

Job Description

This is an exciting opportunity to join our fast-growing Activate Business School & Activate Apprenticeships team and focus on developing management and leadership capabilities across a number of different sectors.

As a skilled Performance Coach you will be an enabler, helping our learners move forward either to the next level of learning and/or into suitable employment. Your goal will be to develop learners that are confident, committed to their programme of learning, able to maintain a positive mind-set despite setbacks and have the drive and self-belief to achieve their goals. This means empowering learners, raising their aspirations, helping them set personal goals and planning how to get there. They should be confident in where to turn to for support and be comfortable asking for help.

An important aspect of your coaching will be developing our learner's emotional intelligence, personal attributes and motivation which will be a key enabler to them achieving their short and long term career and educational goals and making a positive change for life.

We currently have full-time permanent role available. Job share will also be considered. Should you have a preference on working hours/days, please state this in the covering letter section on the application form.

What do you need to be successful?

You will have experience in delivering Level 3 Team Leader or Level 5 Operational Management Apprenticeship programmes. Experience in workshop facilitation as well as assessing CMI qualifications is essential.

As this is a home based role where you will deliver sessions virtually, you will need to have a flexible approach, coupled with excellent organisational and interpersonal skills. You will demonstrate the ability to engage and develop students and role model the attributes that we aspire to develop within our learners. You can be based anywhere in the UK to do this role, with occasional travel required to support learners nationally.  

What are the benefits of this role?

Activate Business School are looking to continue to build a high performing team who are passionate about developing leaderships skills across the UK and seeing the organisational impact that we can make. In addition, there really is no limit in terms of your personal growth, development and career by joining one of the largest Education Providers in the UK. You will have a comprehensive development program as part of induction together with peer to peer learning, a formal development plan and support at every step of the way to set you up for success.

We offer a buddy system, a digital induction module and a close-knit community of experts and leaders across the Group to support the sharing of best practice and encourage individual growth. We have extensive technology in place to develop digital capability and flexible working arrangements will be considered for the right candidate.

What are the benefits of working for Activate Learning Group?
