We are a world class research-intensive university. We deliver teaching and learning of the highest quality. We play a leading role in economic, social and cultural development of the North East of England. Attracting and retaining high-calibre people is fundamental to our continued success.

The Role

Inclusive Newcastle is a strategic approach designed to embed inclusivity for our students in everything we do. It leads a collaborative drive for Inclusive Education and was established in 2019, predominantly to help us deliver our commitments in the Newcastle University Access and Participation Plan (APP). Inclusive Newcastle's work is founded on research and evidence and is led out of the Inclusive Newcastle Knowledge Centre (INKC).

It is our Core Values rather than solely the regulatory requirements of the Office for Students (OfS) which truly drive this work and the scope of Inclusive Newcastle is necessarily much broader than the provisions of the APP.

There was already much activity underway right across the University which continues to contribute to the inclusive approach we need to embrace if we are to be true to our values and meet our commitments as well as to remain competitive in a dynamic and challenged sector. The Inclusive Newcastle strategy aims to establish greater coherence in the excellent work we already do; to identify and strengthen the existing systems and structures which can most successfully enhance access, success and progression across the student lifecycle; and to add to these with carefully designed interventions when they are needed. 

The INKC encourages and supports research and trialling; seeks out and shares current expertise; and thoroughly evaluates our practice and its impact so that we can scale and reapply the most effective existing and new practice.

Inclusive Newcastle neither lays claim to nor seeks to eclipse the work, which is already underway, but rather adds to, amplifies and shares the best of what we do.

Partnership for Diversity and Inclusion: Teaching, Supporting and Supervising Students

The core of what we do is working in partnership with colleagues and students, supporting faculties and academic schools to identify and deliver what we need to do to meet our statutory APP commitments, pursue anti-racist educational work and support wider EDI priorities.

External partnerships are also essential if we are to strengthen our commitment to the inclusive agenda. We work closely with staff and students at other universities; participate in conferences; write and present for sector bodies; and collaborate with businesses, education partners and civil society in our region.

You will support established researchers, including those working on the APP Theory of Change; and will provide strategic and operational support for the INKC Director.

You will work predominantly in the Inclusive Newcastle base, which is co-located with School X in the Henry Daysh Building. Direct reporting is to the Professor of Practice for Inclusive Education who is the Institutional lead for the APP and Director of the INKC.
