About Inspire Coach (Maternity Cover)

About The Role

The 'Inspire' Programme' is a targeted programme delivered in secondary schools in and around Leicestershire. The purpose of Inspire is to work with young people who have been identified to be at risk of becoming disengaged.

Using a range of innovative interventions, Inspire Coaches work within schools to develop and increase confidence, motivation, aspirations and attendance.

The aim of the role is to work alongside identified young people who require additional support within mainstream education, particularly those who have become disengaged for a variety of reasons.

You will have a genuine interest in working with young people who may:

- Be underachieving or have low aspirations, low confidence and self-esteem and poor wellbeing
- Display challenging behaviours
- Have poor engagement/attendance at school
- Find accessing mainstream education challenging

Key Duties:

- To identify and assess KS3 and KS4 students who have low confidence and self-esteem and provide targeted and personalised intervention
- Through 1:1 support and small group sessions, you will identify barriers to learning and create extra-curricular opportunities to re-engage young people with mainstream education
- To work alongside outside agencies to create and offer well rounded support designed to improve identified issues
- To develop and deliver high quality resources and sessions.

Skills required for success:

  • Ability to empower young people to overcome potential barriers to education
  • Experience in creating strong and appropriate relationships, with internal and external partners
  • Ability to encourage, motivate and enthuse young people to participate, promoting positive attitudes towards education
