About The Access Project

The Access Project is an innovative education charity that helps bright young people from disadvantaged backgrounds gain places at top universities. Our volunteers are trained and supported to be effective tutors who work with our students for an hour a week to raise their grades. In addition, a dedicated school-based staff member mentors the students so they have the knowledge and support to make strong university applications. Our results show this approach works.

About the role

University Access Officers manage the day-to-day running of the programme in The Access Project’s partner schools. They work closely with students, staff at all levels, tutors, and with the rest of The Access Project’s team to ensure that the delivery of the programme is optimised. The programme has been carefully designed with the intention that all interactions have a positive impact on a student’s chances of getting into a top university. It is the responsibility of the University Access Officer to deliver all the activities which make up our programme. This includes managing tutor and student pairings as well as delivering and recording in-school activities.

Successful candidates will have the opportunity to work on the front line of addressing educational disadvantage, as well as benefiting from opportunities to become involved in the wider work of The Access Project as it continues to expand.

This is a challenging role, which involves a high level of organisation. It is well-suited to resilient individuals looking to pursue a career in education and/or the social enterprise/charity sectors. UAOs are the sole representative of The Access Project in school and therefore must be comfortable working alone (although they will build relationships and work closely with school staff).

All University Access Officers are line managed by a Programme Manager from The Access Project, who visits the school once per week for line management meetings, as well as being available via email and phone. Each school also nominates a Programme Supervisor, who focuses on the performance of their in-school programme.

Duties and responsibilities of our University Access Officers:

University Access Officers are the case managers for all key stakeholders who interact with the programme including students, tutors, teachers and TAP staff.

1. Students

  • Building strong mentoring relationships with students to drive awareness of and enthusiasm for the programme.

  • Recruiting students onto the programme in line with our student enrolment criteria
  • Matching students with volunteer tutors
  • Managing difficult conversations

  • Using the schools’ existing reporting on students’ academic and pastoral progress to monitor the impact of tutorials, and intervene as appropriate
  • Collecting and uploading various data sets relating to a student’s eligibility or performance on the programme. This ranges from consent forms to individual UCAS applications.

2. Tutors

  • Building and managing relationships with tutors to ensure they have a positive experience of the programme, deliver good quality tutorials, and continue volunteering with us year-on-year
  • Liaising with tutors and managing any day-to-day requests that they have regarding The Access Project or their tutee
  • Managing tutor attendance to tutorials through weekly monitoring systems
  • Observing tutorials and giving tutors any necessary feedback

3. School Staff

  • Working with school staff to ensure their cooperation and timely completion of activities contributing to the smooth running of the programme.
  • Chairing and presenting at termly school meetings with Senior Management to report on programme progress.

4. Other Activities

  • University Access Officers are based in our partner schools, but they spend 1 day each week in The Access Project’s central office undertaking training, attending meetings, and feeding into internal projects to improve the quality of delivery of the programme.
  • University Access Officers support the volunteering team by helping to deliver tutor training sessions, which take place on Saturdays and weekday evenings.
  • University Access Officers will be required to support our Central Provision function including staffing our two annual university trips and our university society events.
