“It’s been a great experience so far. Meeting my coachee has been a pleasure and it’s so reassuring to know that the city is trying to do its best for children in care. I would definitely recommend it!”

New Volunteers

Career Coach aims to match 16 further coaches with young people in year 2 (18/19 academic year) and we are seeking professionals from industry, who hold senior and middle leadership positions, who can commit to coaching a child in care for five years.  By sharing your expertise over five or six coaching sessions per academic year, you can make a lasting impact on a young person’s career pathway. Ongoing supervision is provided in addition to:

  • Safeguarding training

  • Attachment training

  • Coaching training

Career Coach aims to motivate the students by modelling excellence and encouraging them to explore wider career opportunities including pathways to higher education and advanced apprenticeships.
