Job description

Kras Jeugdwerk organises challenging activities in the free time of children and young people between the ages of 6 and 25. We are active with 9 activities in Antwerp's focus districts.

We are currently looking for an education coach. This is a replacement contract of at least 1 year.


In Antwerp, an average of 22% of pupils leave school without a diploma every school year. This is a pity for the pupil himself, but also for our society. Kras Jeugdwerk, together with JES vzw, CLB and Stedelijk Onderwijs, wants to do something about this. We are joining forces so that more young people leave school qualified.

A team of education coaches will work in a number of Antwerp schools with young people from the second and third grade of TSE/BSO/DBSO (double finality, labour market finality and dual) who are at risk of dropping out of school. Together with the student, we work on a future perspective, so that the student can stay motivated at school or switch to a different and more appropriate pathway. The student remains the owner of his or her own trajectory and we always work on a tailor-made basis. The student is at the heart of everything we do.

Educational Coach

Through individual guidance, you will coach young people (15-18 years old) who show signs of school fatigue. You will work in close collaboration with the young person, the teachers, the CPG and the young person's network. You will be supported by a project coordinator and colleagues within your own organisation. In addition, for this project you will work together with external partner organisations that ensure that the young person receives the integral support he/she needs. You are therefore a solution-oriented and flexible coach who works outreach inside and outside the school walls.
