This coming academic year, we are supporting over 2500 pupils. Currently working across London, the South East, the West Midlands and the South , we are looking to thoughtfully scale our academic programmes into hard-to-reach deprivation areas; develop a primary strand to our work; and increase the impact of our programmes.

We need an outgoing self-starter to drive our work in the West Midlands forward, making it a sustainable hub that delivers real social impact.
