Do you believe in a world where all belong?

Do you want to make this a reality for people with learning disabilities, and create new possibilities for our society?

L’Arche in the UK is part of a worldwide federation of people with and without learning disabilities sharing life together. We build Communities with people with learning disabilities rather than for them. We nourish everyone’s emotional and spiritual lives as well as providing for their basic needs. We are committed to mutually transforming relationships and a world where all belong. We display the gift of people with learning disabilities to the world.


Salary range: £32,632 – £42,640 (plus London weighting if applicable) dependent on skills and experience. Permanent full-time position. Open to considering job share, part-time and secondment.


We are looking for a purpose-driven, dynamic National Training Coordinator to help us make a step change in our provision for people development through the integration of social care training with L’Arche’s own vision and values.

We want our 11 communities across Scotland, England and Wales to be more confident, visible and connected as a model of change and a beacon of hope in a post-pandemic world. You will be a member of the mission formation team which is playing a key role in supporting these aspirations by expanding its national provision through the launch of this key role in support of the development of L’Arche UK’s 550 plus employees.

As a key member of our Mission Formation Team, some of the initiatives you will undertake to help us ensure excellence will include:

  • Managing our new L’Arche UK Assistant Induction programme across all our communities building on the excellent achievements made to date.
  • Collaborate with our national leadership body to research and develop a series of induction programmes for all senior leadership roles across L’Arche UK that meet social care required standards and are fully integrated with L’Arche practice, vision and mission.
  • Secure completion of Level 2/3 Health and Social Care Diplomas or equivalent by assistants across all communities. Ensure that all leaders achieve the minimum of a level 5 Diploma or equivalent appropriate to their role within two years of appointment.
  • Manage data monitoring for all training programmes and initiatives under your management, evidencing return on investment and sourcing external funding where possible and ensuring the financial viability of all initiatives.

 

The location is flexible. We welcome and encourage applications from people of all backgrounds, especially from candidates who are disabled or from a black, Asian or minority ethnic background, since these backgrounds are currently under-represented in L’Arche management.

Are you inspired to bring your skills, leadership and values to support our vision of a more human society?
