TPP recruits effectively to a range of Education and Training jobs within not for profit organisations. These diverse interesting roles fall into the following categories:

Education professionals working for Charities, NGOs, or public sector bodies

TPP work closely with a number of charities who recruit for education specialists to promote their message, through a variety of different mediums including e-learning, brochures, and face to face training sessions.  Raising awareness for a charity is incredibly important in delivering their overall objective.

We also recruit for educational specialists within universities, colleges and schools.  This includes special education needs.  Ideally candidates will be qualified to degree level in an education related subject including teaching and/or have experience within the third and public sectors in a similar role.  A background as a Curator would also be beneficial.

Education Policy Advisors

Education policy is constantly changing and it is important for all educational institutes and charities working in the sector to keep abreast of new legislation and policy.  We provide specialist staff to provide curriculum development and policy advise both in the UK and overseas.  Typically candidates need to be a Senior Educational Specialist and have experience of whole school improvement or the design, delivery and improvement of examinations and quality assurance.

Education Professionals working for Membership bodies

Membership bodies provide an integral part of ongoing CPD for their members.  Roles within this sector would range from online modules, education courses, CPD, examinations and assessments.   To apply for roles within this area, it is always beneficial to be a personal advocate of your own personal CPD and be able to demonstrate examples of this.  Experience within one of these sectors is always desirable.
