About Life Lessons

In our current climate, violence and sexual harassment is rife in today’s society. Evidence based relationships and sex education (RSE) can reduce violence by a fifth. However, schools lack the support and guidance to ensure this subject is relatable, inclusive and responsive to pupil’s needs.

Life Lessons is an award-winning, impact driven education organisation which supports teachers to deliver outstanding relationships, sex and health education. 

We do this to help young people make good decisions, be healthy and navigate the emotional and social complexities of life.

Since we launched in 2021, we now support over 200 schools all across the UK and have delivered training and support to over 4000 teachers. We have a growing and multi-skilled team and advisory board. 

Your role

Working with our Commercial Director and Co-founder, you will help with the growth of Life Lessons by building relationships with teachers and headteachers of potential school partners. You will attend networking events, meet teachers and leaders to ensure that more educators know about the work and impact of Life Lessons. You will conduct partnership meetings with teachers and leaders including understanding the needs of the particular school/multi-academy trust (MAT) as well as demonstrating the product. Finally, alongside your work to generate interest and network building you will maintain a diligent sales process, tracking conversations from start to ‘sale agreed’ in our CRM system.
