Senior Mentoring Officer - Aspire to HE
This post is temporary until 31 December 2018
This is a new and exciting opportunity to play a leading role on 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 and addressing any unfounded pre-conceptions that university is ‘not for them’ is crucial to this end.
Reporting to the Aspire to HE Hub Manager you will be responsible for all mentoring which takes place as part of the Aspire to HE programme of activity, including provision provided externally in support of the Hub Manager.
You will be required to establish, design, manage and monitor a mentoring Programme for targeted pupils as part of a wider programme of interventions. You will have a degree and experience of working on projects, ideally related to Mentoring. In addition you will have experience of working with schools and young people. An understanding of widening participation issues and factors that affect young people and their progression to higher education is required.
The University of Wolverhampton values a diverse workforce and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
