Wellington College is one of the world’s leading co-educational boarding and day schools and has an enviable reputation for excellence and innovation. We’re currently looking for a well-organised and reliable individual with good leaderships skills to oversee the outreach and pastoral programmes related to our bursary scheme, the Prince Albert Foundation.
This challenging role has two distinct parts. Most of your time will be spent leading and overseeing the creation and delivery of a specific ‘wrap around’ pastoral programme for the Foundation’s pupils that will be in place throughout their time with us and occasionally, afterwards also. You will also be involved in identifying, cultivating and delivering a wide-reaching outreach programme with a variety of strategic educational/charity partners in order to identify suitable candidates for the Foundation.
To succeed, you’ll need to be educated to degree level or equivalent and have proven experience of pastoral or academic middle management plus a good understanding of Duty of Care and Safeguarding in a school context. You should also be used to engaging with children and adults from very different socio-economic backgrounds and have a firm belief in the importance of equity, inclusion and social mobility. Strong attention to detail and the ability to oversee expenditure and keep accurate records is important too, as is the ability to prioritise a busy workload, coupled with sound judgment, a good sense of perspective and a flexible approach.
Not only is this an excellent career development opportunity, it comes with a generous salary and benefits package too. So, if you have the expertise it takes to help our bursary programme thrive and want to be part of a dynamic and ambitious organisation, apply today.
