As we pen this role we fondly recall some of the brilliant British sporting achievements over the past 12 months across so many disciplines. And as we celebrate these successes we're conscious that behind every great athlete will be grass roots mentors: the people that taught them the basics and inspired them to follow their passion, as in teaching that one person who makes a difference.
We are an award-winning apprenticeship provider of these grass roots heroes, and with ambitious growth plans we need your skills to help us provide more individuals with opportunities to aspire and achieve.
If you're passionate about doing good and having a positive impact we can create a unique opportunity to market our brand of life - affirming impact. P.S. Experience of working in the education / schools / apprenticeship market is a bonus.
