National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) Project Officer (Research and Evaluation)

Do you have good organisational skills with an interest in research and evaluation?  Are you passionate about making a difference and improving access to Higher Education?  Do you want to help us evidence our work?

Go Higher West Yorkshire (formerly HEART), a partnership of 13 Higher Education Providers in West Yorkshire, is looking to appoint a Project Officer to work within the Research and Evaluation team to support the delivery of our Office for Students funded National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP).

NCOP seeks to identify and address issues around progression to higher education for young people living in areas where progression is low overall, and particularly low when GCSE attainment is taken into account.  Working with the NCOP Research and Evaluation team, you will ensure the project’s targets for improved access into Higher Education are met, by ensuring we can evidence our work through appropriate monitoring, research and evaluation. 

The post will be based in the Go Higher West Yorkshire team, located on the University of Leeds campus, but will require the holder to work on a flexible basis, including travel to alternative locations and some evening work.
