This post is temporary to 31 December 2018


An opportunity has arisen for a full time fixed term appointment in the Office of the Dean of Students working on the new Aspire to HE National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) in the Access and Outreach team.


This is a new and exciting opportunity to play a role in the work of the new Aspire to HE consortium that is part of the HEFCE-funded National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP). NCOP aims to increase the number of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in higher education by 2020. Inspiring pupils and addressing any unfounded pre-conceptions that higher education is ‘not for them’ is crucial to this programme.


You will support the development of the communications objectives for the Aspire to HE programme and play a fundamental role in designing, maintaining and developing marketing materials and collaterals as well as specific web pages for the initiative.  You will be part of the central co-ordinating team based at the University of Wolverhampton. Working with the Aspire to HE leadership team, this role will be central in achieving high levels of awareness and engagement with identified target audiences -school/ college leaders/ teachers/ pupils and parents- with the higher education outreach activity being delivered by Aspire to HE.


Aspire to HE is a fixed term collaborative partnership funded until December 2018 in the first instance with the possibility of continuing to December 2020. It comprises the University of Wolverhampton working collaboratively with Black Country and Telford and Wrekin colleges of further education.


The successful candidate will be required to obtain a satisfactory Enhanced disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).


Secondment applications would be welcome.
