Leyton Sixth Form College offers a wide range of A level and vocational courses to approximately 2,300 full-time 16-19 year old students. We strive to provide high quality education and support to our students in fulfilling their academic potential and becoming thinking, questioning and caring members of society. We are a diverse and vibrant college and we are proud of the success and achievements of our students and staff.

We have engaged in extensive self-reflection over the past two years motivated by significant societal events as well as the ongoing commitment to be a responsive, innovative and forward thinking college and an ambitious learning community. In order to realise this commitment in our day to day work, we have developed a framework of Compassionate Education, a concept which embraces inclusive practice, seeks to apply the principles of equality and diversity in all we do, promotes the importance of positive mental health and wellbeing for all and advances our ambition to be an anti-racist organisation.

We are currently seeking to appoint a Graduate Trainee to join our outstanding Sports team. The college has a strong ethos of enrichment and sports participation, and is fully committed to providing extensive activities for all of our students. Our physical activity provision and facilities are notably of a high standard.

This is an exciting opportunity for you to gain valuable work experience in coordinating opportunities for our students and the wider college community to engage in activities which promote good health and wellbeing.  You will plan, deliver and publicise a range of physical activities and wellbeing events, and encourage active participation in our extensive programme of activities.

You should have excellent communication, organisational and interpersonal skills. Experience of coaching young people, and knowledge of local sports and physical activity providers are beneficial for this role.

In return we offer a wide range of staff benefits and the opportunity to work within a thriving learning community.
