ABOUT THE ROLE

This opportunity has arisen as part of the HEFCE funded National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP), and we now require an enthusiastic and motivated individual to join the DANCOP (Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Collaborative Outreach Programme) team.

NCOP aims to identify and address issues around progression into Higher Education. In particular, it seeks to undertake outreach activity in specific local areas where HE participation is low overall and lower than expected given GCSE attainment levels.  

The Project Officer role is to co-ordinate the effective operational development and delivery of projects and activities that support the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Collaborative Outreach Programme (DANCOP), as directed by the Project Manager, working primarily with schools and college learners in the north Nottinghamshire and north Derbyshire area.

You will be experienced in designing educational programmes of activity for young people; ideally focussed around raising aspirations to Higher Education. You will be required to work closely with school and college staff to ensure targeted provision is relevant and successfully delivered, monitored and evaluated.

The role also requires the Project Officer to liaise with other HE and FE providers in the consortium.

The successful candidate will have the following skills:

  • Creative approach to problem solving
  • Adaptable and flexible attitude to work
  • Ability to work well in a team environment and independently
  • Excellent communication skills and an ability to interact with a wide range of people.

The role will require you to embed the college’s values; working with Professionalism, taking Responsibility for your actions, and giving Respect to clients and colleagues alike.
