Higher Education Champion – Art Design and Media (Maternity Cover)
As part of the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) and The Network for East Anglian Collaborative Outreach (NEACO), the University is seeking to appoint a Higher Education Champion specialising in art, design and media (ADM) who is passionate about widening participation and has the skills and/or experience to make a difference to the lives of young people.

The ADM HE Champion will work in a variety of partner secondary schools, sixth forms and/or FE colleges across the region. The postholder will work with staff and students to support identified pupils in Years 9-13 to progress to and thrive in Higher Education. This will involve delivering masterclasses, mentoring and coordinating activity with internal and external partners to raise aspirations, awareness and attainment to support progression to HE.
You will be educated to degree or equivalent level qualification in an art, design or media subject and have experience of developing and delivering art, design and/or media activities for young people. Experience of making presentations, preferably to school aged audiences, is essential.
The successful applicant will have excellent organisation skills with the flexibility and adaptability to work on their own initiative and as part of a team.
