Contextual Admissions Lead Officer

To support the University’s commitment to widen access for students from all backgrounds, Educational Engagement is looking to appoint an experienced and motivated individual to lead and oversee the development of contextual admissions and fair access at the University of Leeds. The post is an exciting opportunity to build on the success of Access to Leeds (A2L) and further develop conversion and preparation activities for Widening Participation (WP) students. 

You will develop use of contextual data in admissions at the University, including continued review of the eligibility criteria for A2L, providing analytical information to inform strategic decision making. As contextual admissions applies to each University faculty, you will lead on relationship building and communications with admissions staff across the institution. You will also work closely with other institutions to ensure the University is fully informed on contextual admissions developments and to raise national profile of A2L.

As the University develops its strategy on preparing WP students for university study, you will oversee development of the A2L academic module.
