We’re an award-winning charity that runs local learning centres which provide an education programme addressing underachievement and social exclusion. We target children and young people most at risk of failing to meet their potential to go to university due to economic, social, cultural, or linguistic disadvantage. IntoUniversity provides practical learning support and motivational and confidence-building activities for children and young people aged 7-18.
As the UK’s leading university access organisation, our staff are transforming the fortunes of thousands of young people each year. From September 2018 we will have twenty-seven centres operating across the country, with ambitious plans to scale-up our provision further over the coming years.
We are looking for a high-calibre candidate to take up a permanent role as a Team Leader at our new centre in Coventry. You will have responsibility for running your IntoUniversity centre, including managing your team, planning and delivering the programme, liaising with external stakeholders (including our university partners) and meeting IntoUniversity’s targets for delivery. However a substantial element of this role is delivering our education programme to children and young people aged 7-18, so you will need to have a genuine passion and enthusiasm for working with young people including leading a class of 30 from the front, working with small teams of children and providing one-to-one support.
The role will be fast-paced and challenging. Each day you will be contributing directly to the success of the charity and the transformation of the lives of some of the UK’s most disadvantaged young people. If you believe that all young people deserve the chance to achieve their potential regardless of their background and want to play a part in helping them succeed then we would be delighted to hear from you.
To apply for this post you’ll need to send us your:
- A covering letter explaining how your skills and experience meet the requirements of the post, and the answers to the seven questions below
- An observation assessing your delivery with children or young people by your current or most recent employer
Please send these to email@example.com by 9am on 9 May 2018, writing ‘TL Coventry’ in the subject field.
We will consider all applications and will invite successful candidates to a selection day which will take place on either 22 or 24 May 2018.
