Achievement Coaches

We know schools are experiencing extraordinary challenges as a result of the pandemic and have been adapting to ensure that their pupils receive the support they need. We aim to provide flexible support that is tailored to the specific needs of your school and pupils. Our trained and DBS checked students can support you with pupil learning and development, by being a positive role model and motivating pupils towards their studies.

Achievement Coaches are able to provide classroom based support, work intensively with pupils one-to-one or in small groups or a combination of both approaches. The scheme coordinator will work with you to identify the most effective approach for your circumstances and needs.


This programme is delivered in school. Please note schools wishing to take part will need to meet our targeting criteria. Pupils receiving intensive or 1:1 support should be eligible for Pupil Premium and/or Free School Meals.


Placements are January – April for 10 weeks, Achievement Coaches will be in school for one day per week.

I could see the difference the students made with our pupils and I was massively impressed by how well the students slotted into our days and the autonomous way which they worked.

Students felt special in the fact that they were being given one to one support and also working in small groups. The Coach was approachable and learners felt comfortable working with them.
