University Access Officers manage the day-to-day running of the programme in The Access Project’s partner schools. They work closely with students, staff at all levels, tutors, and with the rest of The Access Project’s team to ensure that the delivery of the programme is optimised. They enjoy a significant degree of autonomy.
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work on the ‘front line’ of addressing educational disadvantage, as well as benefiting from opportunities to become involved in the wider work of The Access Project as it continues to expand.
This is a challenging role, which is well-suited to resilient individuals looking to pursue a career in education and/or the social enterprise/charity sectors.
Duties and responsibilities of our University Access Officers:
- Coordinating The Access Project’s programme in one of our partner schools
- Managing and improving one-to-one tutorials
- Delivering The Access Project’s programme of university support activities at the school
- Reporting to the schools and The Access Project
- Any other responsibilities reasonably deemed necessary by the Access Project’s Programme Managers or Director.
The University Access Officers are based in our partner schools but they spend 1 day each week in The Access Project’s central office undertaking training and feeding into internal projects to improve the quality of delivery of the programme.
The University Access Officers are line managed by The Access Project. Each school also nominates a Programme Supervisor, who focuses on the performance of their particular in-school programme.
