In the UK today, the best predicator of a child’s academic and social success remains the income and postcode of their parents.
We believe that this is both unjust and damaging to society.
Too many young people are unable to shape their own destiny, or develop the skills, passions and careers their innate ability merits. We passionately believe that education is the key to social mobility, and research from the DfE and the Sutton Trust suggests that regular small-group tuition is one of the most effective ways of accelerating a child’s academic progress.
Our programme brings together inspiring role models, schools, universities and employers in order to increase social mobility in the UK.
Team Up uses tuition, delivered by inspirational role models, to enable young learners from low income backgrounds to meaningfully increase their academic attainment, in order to improve the choices open to them. Our inspirational role models are drawn from a range of backgrounds, with a shared commitment to helping others and themselves fulfil their potential. Through our voluntary leadership programme these role models learn leadership and teaching skills which they then applied to deliver our programmes that are designed to enable pupils to realise their full potential.
We are seeking to appoint a Chief Executive to lead the development who shares our passion and commitment to widening participation in education, to improve life chances of young people and in so doing enrich society as a whole in all its diversity.
You will also need to be able to demonstrate senior management experience relevant to the context for our work and our status as a registered charity as well as for the core responsibilities for governance, finance and the leadership that inspires other to strive to excel in collective effort.
