Vacancy Information

Are you passionate about making a difference and helping young people achieve a higher education destination? Do you want to help us achieve the targets acting as a positive role model and sharing your experiences?

The post will be based within Titus Salt School, but will require the holder to work on a flexible basis, which will include some evening, weekend and school holiday work.

This post will support and is funded by the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) which is Office for Students (OfS) funded project delivered by Go Higher West Yorkshire (formerly HEART), a consortium of 13 Higher Education Providers in West Yorkshire.

NCOP seeks to identify and address issues around progression to higher education for young people living in areas where progression is low overall, and particularly low when GCSE attainment is taken into account. Working with a selected cohort of KS4 and KS5 students from across your host school, you will support their applications and transition into higher education, ensuring that all who have the potential to succeed have the opportunity to do so. You will be responsible for the development and delivery of individualised Learning Agreements for your target group, ensuring the effective involvement of parents/carers, staff and other key stakeholders in the project, and arranging events and activities. You will work within the NCOP management team and be responsible for the day to day operation of the programme.
