Work base: various across Suffolk

As part of the exciting National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) and The Network for East Anglian Collaborative Outreach (NEACO) the University of Suffolk is recruiting a number of Higher Education Champions (HEC) to work in Suffolk. NEACO is a partnership of five universities committed to widening participation and raising aspiration into Higher education across East Anglia. Partners are Cambridge University (Lead), University of Suffolk, University of East Anglia, Anglia Ruskin University, Norwich University of the Arts.

These roles have been created to support the Government’s objective to accelerate progress on widening access to higher education (HE). The HE Champions will be employed by a partner university and hosted in part by a partner secondary school, sixth form or FE college. The HE Champions will be working with staff and students to support identified pupils in Years 9-13 to progress to and thrive in HE. This will involve mentoring, delivering masterclasses and coordinating activity with internal and external partners to raise aspirations, awareness and attainment to support HE progression.

We are looking for people who are passionate about widening participation and have the skills and/or experience make a difference to the lives of young people.
