Data, Monitoring and Evaluation Officer
The University of Wolverhampton
Office of the Dean of Students
Data, Monitoring and Evaluation Officer - ‘Aspire to HE’
This post is temporary to 31 December 2018
An opportunity has arisen for a full time fixed term appointment in the Office of the Dean of Students working on the new Aspire to HE National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) in the Access and Outreach team.
This is a new and exciting opportunity to play a role in the work of the new Aspire to HE consortium that is part of the HEFCE-funded National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP). NCOP aims to increase the number of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in higher education by 2020. Inspiring pupils and addressing any unfounded pre-conceptions that higher education is ‘not for them’ is crucial to this programme
Aspire to HE delivers a carefully targeted programme of outreach activities to promote access to higher education. This post will ensure that events and activities are provided for the intended beneficiaries of the programme. You will use a range of data sources to ensure that individuals and schools are correctly targeted and that participants are tracked over time to demonstrate the longer term impact of their participation. You will support the work of the in house evaluators - University of Wolverhampton College of Learning and Teaching (CoLT) – by ensuring the robust registration of participants on all strands of activity and collating qualitative and quantitative evidence of impact. You will also provide advice and guidance to partners on their systems for targeting and evaluation to ensure that the strategic approach to targeting and evaluation is coherent and comprehensive across the Aspire to HE Programme as a whole.
Aspire to HE is a fixed term collaborative partnership funded until December 2018 in the first instance with the possibility of continuing to December 2020. It comprises the University of Wolverhampton working collaboratively with Black Country and Telford and Wrekin colleges of further education.
The successful candidate will be required to obtain a satisfactory Enhanced disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
Secondment applications would be welcome.
Informal enquiries about the role should be directed to Daniel Howells, Director of Aspire to HE, by email firstname.lastname@example.org
Closing date: 22 March 2017
