At Arden University, we pride ourselves on being true innovators, disruptors and pioneers. Our focus is to promote life-long learning and ensure that everyone, everywhere can access higher education. We are currently looking for a number of Degree Apprenticeship Coaches to join our Corporate Learning team at levels 6 and 7, with a focus on 2 separate areas:
- Project Management and / or Supply Chain
- Leadership and Management
We're looking for coaches with experience in either of the above areas.
You will be skilled at guiding and supporting apprentices, every step of the way, through their learning journey. You will also empower learners as they build the essential knowledge, skills and behaviours to succeed as well as be experienced at taking your learners from their starting point through to successful EPA completion.
You should also demonstrate a deep understanding of leadership principles, coaching methodologies, and industry-specific knowledge to effectively guide and support apprentices on their learning journeys. Strong communication, interpersonal, and problem-solving skills are essential to foster a collaborative and growth-oriented environment.
In our commitment to ensuring a safe and secure environment for all members of our community, we have established a policy that mandates the completion of a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check for all new staff members joining roles that involve working with apprentices. This precautionary measure is in place to safeguard the well-being of our apprentices and maintain the highest standards of security.
To streamline the onboarding process and adhere to our safeguarding principles, it is imperative that the DBS check for any relevant new starter be initiated and completed before their scheduled start date.
At Arden, you will become a part of a passionate and dedicated team who are committed to removing unnecessary barriers to learning and making education more accessible. Our people work hard to ensure our students journeys are the best they can possibly be, as such we want to reward our people with fantastic benefits. Employees benefit from:
- 30 days holiday, add the bank holiday on top, and we even throw in Christmas closure
- A generous Aviva pension plan, our contributions start at 7%
- PMI or Healthcare Cashback (dependent on role grade)
- Study any Arden course for free, with generous discount for all family and friends
- Our ‘Golden Ticket’ which allows you to gift anyone in your life a free Arden education
- Plus, other competitive benefits!
Stand out, Progressive, Accessible, Resourceful, Kindness, reflect who we are as an institution, a team and as individuals. If they also reflect you and you are excited by the chance to be the driving, creative force within a growing business, we want to hear from you.
There has never been a more exciting time to join Arden University, as we expand into new disciplines and locations.
Closing Date: Monday 26th of February
