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 Programme Manager. We are looking for a multi-skilled individual looking to gain experience in programme and people management. In this role you will be responsible for taking a group of schools, their pupils and volunteer tutors through the programme from start to finish, and for ensuring the programme genuinely makes a difference to those participating. In the first few months of your contract you will focus on your school portfolio, while later you will have the chance to use your experience to mentor other team members or take on more strategic work alongside your main role of supporting your schools.
You will be joining a small team of staff in a fun and friendly environment where we work hard for the mission and for each other. We look forward to welcoming you on board.
