Salary: £9,235.

What you’ll do as a learning and development apprentice

From little seeds grow big oaks and as PSS’s learning and development apprentice, you’ll nurture these seeds.

You’ll be the Edward Scissorhands of the learning world, pruning all of their learning records into shape with precision and keeping an eye on how individual people are progressing. You’ll make sure all their learning data is carefully managed, particularly by updating and maintaining their learning management system- Learning Pool. By doing this, you’ll be supporting people to meet their individual targets, along with supporting the really big-picture stuff – PSS hitting their service and organisational objectives.

In return, they’ll help you to blossom by providing the option to learn and develop yourself on a level three learning and development qualification. Once you’ve completed this you’ll be able to apply for CIPD membership. The things you’ll do towards this will include:

  • Supporting the learning and development team by assisting their L&D business partner to run the LMS effectively. That means keeping all the i’s dotted and all the t’s crossed to make sure they meet all the criteria that the people who monitor them look for. Making sure their external regulators are happy is very important.
  • Supporting the admin stuff behind the LMS. So that’s all about adding people to courses, creating sign-in lists, updating attendance records and running reports that the organisation needs to keep an eye on things.
    Being the host with the most. You’ll support the team to arrange learning and development workshops online and offline, booking this into diaries, making sure people have the resources they need, contacting people who’ll be coming to training, sending out invites and information and doing this in a timely fashion.

You’ll need:

  • To be a real people person. They’re looking for someone who can build and maintain good relationships with people right across PSS as well as other external suppliers.
  • Experience of working in an office environment and strong MS Office skills – Outlook, Word and Excel.
  • A fire in your belly. Self-belief and drive, along with a positive and ‘can do’ attitude

Candidates who consider themselves to be disabled will also be given the opportunity to attend an interview if they meet the essential criteria for the role.
