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.

Through one-on-one support and small group sessions, our coaches identify barriers to learning and create extra-curricular opportunities to re-engage young people with mainstream education.

Part of the programme is delivered in conjunction with the Prince's Trust Achieve clubs, which work with young people to achieve their potential and make positive decisions for their own futures.
