It is vital that you apply for your Enhanced DBS check, which is necessary for working with young people on the Future Frontiers programme.
If you already have a DBS check from the last 3 years for CHILD WORKFORCE, please send a scanned copy to your Programme Manager.
You will not be able to coach on this programme without a fully processed DBS check, which can take up to four weeks to come through once it has been submitted.
Below is a run through of the programme from your training workshop. Look through the steps and read through the information below regarding timings and scheduling sessions.
You will schedule your sessions with your pupil over email.
Choose a time which suits you both, bearing in mind work and school commitments.
Remember to schedule time in for session prep ahead of each session.
You can choose how you split your 6 hours of coaching time.
Typically, each core session takes approx. 90 minutes but you can be flexible depending on how long the activities take you.
Protect your session times just as you would any other commitments at work.
Cancelling sessions last minute shows your pupil that you are not dedicated to the programme and does not reflect a professional working environment.
Make sure your sessions will fit into the timings indicated.
If you have any commitments such as Annual Leave, you may have to have two sessions in one week.
You will be using the online platform Bramble to host your sessions.
Before your programme, you will be sent an invite to create an account.

Bramble records everything you do in the “room” – we use this to spot check your sessions.
It saves your progress from the previous sessions so you can see what you wrote down in the previous sessions
You'll upload the pupil handbook to the notebook (and you can turn the pages like an ebook on the notebook) and help your student work through it. You use your coach handbook to guide you in the best way to complete the activities.
You can download all the work you do on the notebook and send it as a PDF to your student – we recommend doing this at the end of the programme (as this cleans your notebook and you have to reupload the handbook).
As a coach, it's important you understand how to safeguard your pupil whilst on the programme.

However, please find some general pointers to help you, depending on whether your pupil
