Programme Coordinator – Professional Pathways
Ark is an international charity, transforming lives through education. In the UK, we are a network of 38 schools, educating more than 24,000 pupils across Birmingham, Hastings, London and Portsmouth. These schools are all non-selective and in areas where they can make the biggest difference. We exist to give every young person, regardless of their background, a great education and real choices in life about their pathway through to university, apprenticeship or career.
The Professional Pathways programme provides a high quality experience for students who are pursuing vocational and technical qualifications in our sixth forms. Teachers are trained to embed employer-led curriculum projects into the design and delivery of Level 3 Business, Applied Science and IT qualifications, deliver a bespoke work readiness curriculum and engage in meaningful and informed discussions about apprenticeship and higher education options for their students. After running a successful pilot this year, we also offer a transition year programme for students who have not passed GCSE English and/or maths in Year 11.
The Professional Pathways programme started with an initial cohort of 35 students in September 2015 and now works directly with over 400 students across Ark sixth forms. The Programme Coordinator will report in to the Professional Pathways Manager and work closely with the Programme Officer. The role will sit as part of the wider Pathways, Enrichment and Partnerships team at Ark.
