NVQ Assessor / Regional Trainer Fitness
NVQ Assessor / Regional Trainer Fitness – Central London
Founded in 1995, Lifetime’s focus on innovation and smart business practices have seen us develop into one of the top performing and fastest growing companies in the UK. Our success is built upon tailoring training solutions to meet the needs of employers and employees. We have a rapidly expanding customer base across the fitness and leisure, hospitality, adult and elderly care, children and young people’s care, call centre and retail sectors. Our dynamic growth is set to continue as we develop new training and employment programmes across these and other sectors, focusing on the provision of Apprenticeships and commercial training.
The last three years have seen fantastic growth with turnover increasing from £9 million to a budgeted £35 million this year. We’re now well placed to benefit from the UK government’s commitment to additional investment in funded training (around £430m to fund 125,000 Apprenticeships) over the next few years. With one of the most dynamic and driven boards around, we believe we’re right to be so excited about the future.
In a nutshell
You’ll be from a fitness background and have some management experience within the industry. You’ll promote the benefits of apprenticeships to our clients’ staff, sign up new learners and then guide and mentor them throughout the work-based assessment process.
Key Responsibilities of the role
You'll be managing up to 45 learners at various locations within your assigned region - coaching and assessing them on a one-to-one or group basis under national occupational standards.
Helping learners achieve their Apprenticeship or Advanced Apprenticeship (including the NVQ, technical certificate, and key skills), you'll consider a wide variety of disciplines and departments - from fitness, operations to management and customer service.
And here's the interesting twist....talking with both individuals and general managers, you'll also identify and encourage more employees to undertake these qualifications/assessments, and match them to the most appropriate training and development programme for their aspiring careers.
The funding of these programmes is provided through the Skills Funding Agency (SFA). It's your job to make sure we secure our funding by hitting and exceeding our learner' targets across the variety of courses on offer.
What you'll need
Speaking of exceptional training, you're in a class of your own. With a good set of GCSEs behind you, including Maths and English, you've a relevant degree (or equivalent), and if you have an NVQ Level 3 (or similar) then that would be great.
A1 Assessor Award is desirable but don’t worry we can train you if you don’t have it.
You will excel in two areas: managing people through training programmes and also promoting the benefits of these to new people.
We have high standards and expect the same in our people. This is key to our success and will continue to drive our performance and growth. As we are such a rapidly evolving company, we expect all our people to be adaptable, quick thinking and focused every day to contribute to this challenge. Your 'things to do' list will be invariably long, but always achievable so we're looking for someone who is self-motivated with excellent time management skills.
Our investment in leading technology solutions is significant. You will be IT literate with good working knowledge of Microsoft packages. Don't worry, we will train you on our bespoke systems!
And, as we would expect, you will have a full UK driving licence and can travel to different locations using your own vehicle.
