Training and Events Coordinator
At Pearson, we’re committed to a world that’s always learning and to our talented team who makes it all possible. From bringing lectures vividly to life to turning textbooks into laptop lessons, we are always re-examining the way people learn best, whether it’s one child in our own backyard or an education community across the globe. We are bold thinkers and standout innovators who motivate each other to explore new frontiers in an environment that supports and inspires us to always be better. By pushing the boundaries of technology — and each other to surpass these boundaries — we create seeds of learning that become the catalyst for the world’s innovations, personal and global, large and small.
The purpose of the role is to manage the booking and facilitation of face to face and remote training events for Pearson Associates, across our GQ and VQ qualifications as well as other non marking qualifications. To be responsible for and ensure that all events, on all platforms, are created and set up as per SLAs. To ensure that sufficient Pearson Associates are invited and confirmed to meet the target requirements for all events.
This role is business-critical and covers an essential phase in the successful delivery of results to students. Team members need to remain focused while working to tight deadlines, yet also need to be sufficiently flexible to manage the varying priorities, meeting event targets while answering customer queries, acting as a subject-specific contact while responding to urgent situations that frequently arise during the examination period etc. Evening and weekend overtime is an expectation during peak periods.
