This is an exciting time to join the award winning LIFT Programme as we start a new service with Cambridgeshire County Council. In partnership with Cambridgeshire County Council and other service providers you will provide independent travel training to vulnerable young people who have learning difficulties or physical disabilities, to enable them to use public transport for journeys to school or college.

You will join a strong national programme and after induction training will be capable of delivering structured 1:1 support. You will have good organisational skills and enjoy working in a community setting across Cambridgeshire. Most work will be undertaken at or from home. However, hot desking is possible at local authority hubs and meetings can be arranged at local authority premises. Lift Training will supply team members with a laptop, mobile phone and printer to enable home working. You will be confident working independently in the community, an excellent communicator with a dynamic and innovative approach. You will be the holder of a full driving licence. You may have or be working towards teaching qualifications, if not Lift Training will support the gaining of such qualifications.

These roles may attract applicants from a variety of backgrounds such as teaching, learner support, newly qualified graduates, care workers, former Police Officers, youth workers etc. These roles will require travel and flexible start and finish times. The Travel Trainer role will be supervised by the Programme Leader who will identify the caseload of young people. We are looking for people who are enthusiastic, creative, excited to be working with young people and who have good communication skills.

The Programme Leader will be responsible for supervising the team, working closely with the Council, developing and processing learner referrals, preparing performance reports and will be managed by the Head of Lift Training. We are looking for someone to lead and build a new team, someone who is innovative, someone who has experience of leading a project, someone who has worked with multi agency partners, someone with enthusiasm and drive, someone who can inspire others, and someone who is experienced in problem solving.

Application and guidance forms are located on the National Star website –
