Scottish Sports Futures use the power of sport and physical activity to engage with vulnerable and disadvantaged young people in Scotland and empower them to be confident, healthy and happy.

We do this using our proven and recognised Sport for Change model and its range of person-centred, youth-led programmes that provide positive experiences, inspiring role models, engaging social education, training, and youth volunteering opportunities. As a result, we seek to encourage a positive change in young people’s attitudes and behaviour that enables them to recognise and fulfil their potential, and to make a valuable contribution to their peers and their community.

We are proud to have a culture which is inclusive and collaborative, where our people are valued and supported to lead and develop ground-breaking initiatives with young people and communities at the heart.

The Role

The Education and Training Administrator is responsible for providing a range of administrative support for various educational, training, and workforce development programmes delivered by Scottish Sports Futures (SSF). A key goal is to ensure that our training programmes run smoothly and that accreditations are processed efficiently and effectively.

The post-holder will have specific responsibility for the administrative processes essential for the successful delivery of SSF’s Education Through Cashback (ETC) programme.

This programme combines youth work and sport to enhance knowledge of the ‘Sport for Change’ approach and has been developed in collaboration with several expert partner agencies.

All SSF education and training programmes provide accessible accreditation for young people, as well as upskilling practitioners to work with young people at risk and achieve SSF’s strategic goals of Developing People, Improving Health and well-being, and Strengthening Communities.
