Job description

Our Centre of Excellence, delivered in partnership with NCFE, is the first of its kind launched in the UK in 2020, and cited in the Government’s Skills for Jobs white paper as being a high-quality development programme. The programme draws on our unique insights into global skills systems to over 80 countries and nations to mainstream excellence in skills development. Through our partnership with NCFE, we are transferring innovations in teaching and training to educators, influencing standards of practice across technical and vocational education and training (TVET).

Central to the programme is our team of High-Performance Skills Coaches, who lead the development and delivery of a transformative workforce development programme drawing from a global network of experts. They train, coach and mentor educators across various institutions to supercharge the quality of teaching, training, and assessment, embedding world-class practices and techniques.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to build on their industry expertise in digital skills, engineering and manufacturing or green technology and their experience in TVET, by having access to a global network of experts and a mandate to bring that learning back into the UK.

The successful candidate will also receive professional development through training, coaching and mentoring to support them in the role of High-Performance Skills Coach.

At WorldSkills UK, we have big ambitions to help the next generation, our education system, and the economy.

We are working to help create a world-class further education system that tackles vocational snobbery head on, so more young people get better opportunities and are not written off because going to university isn’t right for them.

We are working to showcase that the WorldSkills UK way of mainstreaming global best practice is working to drive up standards in training, helping more young people and employers succeed.

We are working to help create a more inclusive skills system that gives more young people from diverse backgrounds a better chance of success in work and life.

We are a unique platform working with leaders in education, business and governments across the UK and our partners across the world.

As an employer ourselves we aim to be truly inclusive, offering a hybrid and collaborative working culture. We pride ourselves on having a flexible approach to our working practices and are happy to discuss flexible working options with suitable candidates. Although operating from a London-based headquarters, we welcome applications from candidates across the UK and will always consider requests to work from other locations on a case-by-case basis subject to business requirements.

Join us, if you are ambitious to shape the future of further education, change lives and help create a world-class skills economy for the UK. Because when young people succeed, we all succeed.

WorldSkills UK is an independent charity and a partnership between employers, education, and governments. Together, we are using international best practice to raise standards in apprenticeships and technical education so more young people and employers succeed.

We are a proud member of WorldSkills, a global movement of over 80 countries. WorldSkills supports young people across the world via competitions-based training, assessment and benchmarking, with members’ national teams ultimately testing their ability to achieve world-class standards in the biennial ‘skills olympics’. The insights we gain from training as part of this global network help us raise standards across the UK.

At WorldSkills UK we strongly value equity, diversity and inclusion and recognise that it is critical to our success. We are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all who work with us and strongly welcome applications from diverse backgrounds. WorldSkills UK is an equal opportunities employer that encourages applications from anyone who meets the specific criteria of the post regardless of age, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender reassignment, marital and civil partnership status, pregnancy, religion or belief or sexual orientation. We particularly encourage applications from those from diverse groups, such as women, members of the BAME and LGBTQ+ communities, to join us as at WorldSkills UK.

We are a member of the Disability Confident Scheme and guarantee interviews to all disabled candidates who meet the minimum criteria for our vacancies, and we are committed to making reasonable adjustments at all stages of the recruitment process for candidates to perform to the best of their ability.
