Woodhouse College is a state-funded sixth form college which has approximately 1,460 full-time students, all taking A level courses. Most expect to go to university after they leave. The College benefits from a pleasant campus including a large outdoor 3G football pitch, a Sports Hall and Dance Studio, and is situated in north London.
We have a vacancy for this temporary and part-time post and are keen for someone to start as soon as possible. This is a wonderful opportunity for an enthusiastic project manager to join our College. We are looking for someone with a keen interest in the benefits of being physically active and in the wellbeing of our students.
The College has undertaken to improve students’ engagement in physical activity because it intrinsically adds to the student experience and because of the developmental, health and wellbeing benefits this can bring. The working hours and days are flexible; however, we expect a commitment of around 0.6 of a full-time post (three days a week). The salary is £32,163 + £2,533 pro rata which works out as £20,818 gross per annum, assuming a commitment of 0.6 of a full-time post. The vacancy has arisen part-way through a two-year contract with Sport England as the current postholder is moving to a different role in a London college. Sport England is currently considering our recent bid to have the contract extended for a further year.
We are seeking someone with an infectious enthusiasm for physical activity and for encouraging young people to be active and to participate. You will probably be qualified as a coach at L1 or L2 in more than one discipline. You will need excellent communication and people skills, an awareness of how to influence young people and an ability to work with our funders to manage the project.
