A great opportunity for a creative and motivated individual to manage all aspects of a discrete project from start to finish, as well as supporting the wider organisation during the baseline year of our Three Year Impact Strategy.

Our long-term supporters, the Co-op Foundation, are helping us to develop a new model for our programmes that allows schools to deliver internally. Envision continues to host and facilitate the competition and cross-school events, whilst school staff provide support for young people to progress their projects.

This year we are working with nine Co-op Academies. The Curriculum Development Manager will manage, develop, and deliver all aspects of this programme, which is due to run from January – May 2022. This will include logistics, communications, and organisation of the cross-school events and competition, as well as monitoring and assessing the impact of the programme through data collection and creating reports for academies and the Co-op Foundation.  

You will also develop content for a new website providing resources for schools to facilitate social action projects to enable young people to develop their confidence and skills.  You will draw on existing Envision materials, as well as develop ideas of your own.  You will work closely with Skills Builder Partnership to ensure that the materials reflect their syllabus.
