Further Information

An opportunity has arisen to appoint a new Child Pedestrian Training Co-ordinator, based within the Sustainable Transport and Road Safety Team at Gateshead Council, but working across Tyne & Wear and Northumberland.

You will co-ordinate the team of 6 Child Pedestrian Trainers and take part in delivering some of the classroom-based and on-road pedestrian training, mainly to lower Key Stage 2 pupils. Co-ordination responsibilities will include: making bookings; organisation and dissemination of timetabling information; data collection, storage and interpretation; maximising use of resource; ensuring appropriate training standards are met and promotion of the project. You will be expected to identify development opportunities and help to implement these.

You will also liaise with and support the lead trainers (where appropriate) and/or their managers in each participating Local Authority (Gateshead, Newcastle, North Tyneside, Northumberland, South Tyneside and Sunderland).

You will need to have 5 GCSE's at Grade 4 or Grade C or above (or equivalent), as well as good organisational, communication, leadership, numeracy, literacy and IT skills.

A knowledge of Child Pedestrian Training techniques would be an advantage.

If successful you will be required to apply for an enhanced Disclosure.

Interviews are likely to take place in week commencing 6 January 2020.

The Schools Go Smarter (SGS) programme funds delivery of Child Pedestrian Training across the Northumbria area, until at least March 31 2021. Further funding may be obtained to extend this very well-received project beyond its currently funded period.
