  • Someone who strives to help pupils reach their potential.
  • Be an imaginative problem solver and good communicator.
  • Be ready to make a profound difference in pupil’s education.
  • Have a sporting background and ability to pass on knowledge.

The benefits of the role include:

  • Excellent chance to build a school-wide relationship and career with a variety of well-resourced schools.
  • Being at the core of local community.
  • Help children use sport as a physical outlet
  • Teach children the significance of health and fitness
  • Dedicated personal consultant.
  • Pension Scheme & competitive, weekly pay.
