Job Purpose

The Learning Bar is looking for a Training Coordinator who will provide dedicated focus on literacy
programs and training; and coordinate the delivery of professional development training for
clients who use Confident Learners Program in their schools. This challenging role will appeal to
early years (K-3) teachers who seek the satisfaction of increasing educational prosperity for all
children. If you have experience as a Literacy Resource, and/or working with Indigenous
communities we want to hear from you!

About the Role

You will apply your strong grasp of the science of literacy development and instructional best-practice as
you prepare for the delivery of in-person professional development workshops to principals, literacy
leads, teachers and staff. Before you can provide the best possible service to our clients using the
Confident Learner’s tool, you will need to gain a full understanding of the resources (this takes a while).
As you develop relationships and partnerships, you will be able to provide advise and support to
educators in applying teaching strategies to support students in K-3.

Many of our clients are located within a Indigenous community, so you will be required to research and
become familiar with their unique needs (social, cultural, historical, and political context).

    effective program implementation
  • Prepare and deliver sales related materials and presentations as required

    your degree is in early childhood education and literacy.
  • You have applied the science of literacy development and instructional best practice in your previous roles.
