Architype is seeking a part-time Learning and Development Coordinator for our People Team, who shares our passion for people and the planet.
Architype is the UK’s leading Passivhaus architect and is widely recognised for our innovative approach including Education Architect of the Year, highly commended AJ100 Practice of the Year, 2022 RIBA London and Sustainability Award and 2022 South of England and South Wales BCO award.
The main purpose of the people team at Architype is to support the productivity and well-being of all our staff (known as co-owners here). We are so proud of what they do to create architecture that works for people and the planet and it’s a privilege to support them to be happy, healthy, values-driven and agile creatives!
We strive to create an environment where our people can learn every day, have the opportunity to develop and play to their strengths.
The learning and development coordinator will play a key role in building on our culture of lifelong learning and development so that we can give all our people a great career experience, but also develop the skills and capabilities we need as a business.
This is a new role in a growing practice so there will be room for development for the right candidate.
One of the key requirements is to develop a meaningful framework for training at Architype, including timescales, numbers of staff and outline budgets. This will provide data that supports training planning and general coordination across our practice of c.100 co-owners.
This will be informed by the following tasks:
- Establish a skills matrix for measuring a variety of skills, including software, hard and soft skills. Ensure this is kept up to date in an easy to access and use format.
- Recommend budgets, based on previous spending and strategic requirements of the business
- Identify the training requirements for each discipline, with input from the Training Working Group, and making sure each discipline is meeting their requirements (eg. RIBA Core curriculum hours)
- Coordination of annual review training requests
- Coordination of the practice’s requirements – eg strategic resourcing requirements, such as Passivhaus and Eccolab.
- Identifying people appropriate for each training
- Sourcing and booking training courses, as well as liaison with providers
- Assist the CPD team with booking core CPDs for all co-owners who require this
- Coordinating and development of the line manager training programme in conjunction with the Head of People
- Coordination of Belbin assessments (or similar) for senior management
- Coordination and development of the mentor scheme
- Coordination and development of an architectural assistant apprenticeship scheme
- Develop personal development plan regimes for support team co-owners, in conjunction with support team leads
