Job Description

PIP’s mission is to support adults with learning disabilities to achieve their potential. We are a small but growing charity based in West London, and run a number of key services to promote independence and choice for our service users. All of the work PIP does is aimed at fulfilling one or more of our 6 priority outcomes:

  • PIP Students lead more independent lives
  • PIP students improve their health, wellbeing and self-esteem
  • PIP Students gain life skills
  • PIP students build social skills
  • PIP Students increase their social interactions within the community
  • Happiness, comfort and improved quality of life for parents and carers

Learning and development underpins everything we do at PIP.  It’s what makes us a focused, caring and ambitious organisation that supports our students to achieve greater independence.  This is highly valued by students, families, staff and other professionals.

The Learning & Development Coordinator works with each adult with learning disabilities that accesses PIP services to understand their support needs, passions, ambitions and goals.  They set individual goals, monitor progress and evaluate overall development. They will ensure that personal development plans stretch people to achieve their potential yet remain realistic and attainable. 

We are looking for an enthusiastic Learning and Development Coordinator to join our friendly team, and work closely with our service users to develop and create an accurate portrayal of how PIP services make an impact on the adults with learning disabilities we exist to serve.

This post holder will be totally committed to gathering, recording and analysing accurate and meaningful data which can be used at every level of the organisation to determine the impact and effectiveness of PIP’s work. Working at the heart of everything PIP does, the post holder will provide an experienced, passionate and driven approach to their work that everyone at PIP can learn and develop from.

The post holder will support our dedicated staff team to oversee individual goals for each of our service users, and monitor progress and development of PIP’s overall impact. They will also play a leading role in organizing the accreditation of our services and manage 2 staff members. Overseeing and understanding the high-quality support PIP provides will be key to the role. 

The ideal candidate will have experience of working with people with learning disabilities, or a similar vulnerable service user group, and experience of managing front line delivery staff.  We are looking for an effective team player that can work closely with our caring and dedicated staff and volunteers to affect real change in the lives of adults with learning disabilities.

This role is both diverse and challenging, and will provide the right candidate with excellent opportunities to significantly develop their skills and knowledge within the charity and health and social care sectors.
