Want to develop your coaching and training skills as well as changing lives?
Parent Gym, a practical, evidence-based parenting programme, is looking for volunteer coaches to work with our parent groups. We are looking for parents with fantastic people skills who enjoy leading group discussion. In return we offer world-class training, as well as plenty of on-going support and further development opportunities.
Great experience for anyone wanting to develop training and coaching skills at the same time as supporting families and giving the next generation a strong start in life.
Check out our website for more information.
Sessions are 2 hours per week, plus some travel and preparation time. You'd need to be free one morning or afternoon a week during term-time, plus 3 consecutive days for training.
We cover travel expenses and provide free, world-class training plus plenty of feedback, support, and ongoing development opportunities which some of our coaches have used to start a new career in training/coaching.
Best suited to:
You'll need to be a parent yourself and a graduate, with some teaching, coaching or group facilitation experience. For full details of what we look for, check out our website.
