Argyle Community Trust is looking for an enthusiastic, charismatic, and dedicated individual to deliver our year 14 strength and conditioning programme that was originally introduced in September 2022. Working as a part of the successful Post 16 education team and reporting to the Plymouth Education Programme Manager, you will inspire and ensure that every young person that goes through the year 14 strength and conditioning programme with us will have an opportunity to thrive and succeed.
The role as S&C Programme Lead Tutor/ Coach will be to deliver YMCA qualifications, along with vocationally related qualifications and NVQs in Sport. The successful candidate must have in-depth knowledge of the YMCA Level 2 Gym Instructors and Level 3 Personal Trainer (Practitioner) specification and will teach these qualifications through practical and theoretical delivery, for students aged 18-19 years, offered in partnership with Argyle Community Trust and City College Plymouth. The role involves working with learners in a group and/or one-to-one basis, delivering all aspects of the qualifications in a variety of subjects and levels.
The tutor will also be a member of the coaching team helping young players, enrolled on the programme, to utilise and apply the knowledge they develop in the classroom into practice in team sports. Experience of delivering young people’s football training sessions is therefore essential.
The position will be based at Home Park, Plymouth; the candidate will be expected to work across the Argyle Community Trust as and when needed which could include some weekend and evening work. The candidate must understand the importance of monitoring and evaluation and be confident in ICT and data entry. This is a part of the role which will help develop the Trust’s reports and feedback to its multiple partners. As a registered charity, the Community Trust works, in close conjunction with Plymouth Argyle Football Club and with many people across several sectors where sport has proven to be the ideal tool for creating lasting engagement with a diverse range of individuals.
