Job Details

CoachBright is an award-winning social enterprise on a mission to support young people from the ages of 10-30 to identify and fulfil their potential.

We do this in two ways. Firstly, by helping pupils from low-income families become independent and resilient so they can lead the lives they want. We believe your background should not determine your future. Our programmes improve a pupil’s grades, confidence and expectations so they can win places at top universities.

Secondly, we train young professionals in coaching skills to develop their interpersonal, communication and leadership skills as well as their self awareness.
