Widening Participation Project Coordinator NCOP (Going for Goals)

Buckinghamshire New University

Bucks New University have successfully bid for Study Higher funds to deliver a collaborative outreach project. ‘Going for Goals’ will target widening participation students (mainly white, working class, boys) within selected NCOP (National Collaborative Outreach Programme) wards, to participate in a hands-on programme of activity, culminating in a residential summer school. The aim of this project is to develop participants’ understanding of sport-related and leisure industry careers, with a view to engaging them in thinking about progression to higher education. This project will be delivered in partnership with UCFB and some of the programme will be hosted at UCFB’s iconic home, Wembley stadium. Collaborative input will also be sought from our Study Higher partners: Reading University, University of Oxford and Oxford Brookes University.

The post holder will manage the project from the initial content development stages, through to the operational delivery of the programme, and subsequent evaluation of impact. The successful candidate will be educated to degree level, and will have experience of delivering workshops for young people. You should have good written and oral communication, with a particular emphasis on presentation skills.
