Fixed Term Contract until December 2020
Reach Academy Early Years Hub are recruiting for a Data, Learning and Impact Adviser to join the Feltham Early Learning Community in order to use data insights to drive decision-making and improvement for children and families. The role will not be employed by Save the Children UK.
No child’s future should be determined by their parent’s wealth. We want to break the cycle for families in poverty and close the gap between the richest and poorest children’s early development.
Over the past 20 years, our experience has shown that standalone programmes do not change the story for the most disadvantaged children. To make and sustain real change, we need a big picture approach and joined up support for children, with long-term investment.
Save the Children UK has partnered with Reach Academy Early Years Hub. Together we will provide wide-ranging support services to benefit local children, parents and families to improve school readiness. We are also working closely with local organisations such as schools, nurseries, Local Authority and children centres to reach families most in need.
We share a common goal of improving early years provision and outcomes for children. We will make Feltham a centre of innovation, equipping local professionals and families to develop innovative responses to early learning challenges
The project aims to improve early learning outcomes for children growing up in poverty, through the cumulative effects of three objectives:
- Supporting local system change
- Delivery of programmes to ensure that children start school ready to learn
- Fostering local innovation
As Data, Learning and Impact Adviser you will develop and implement a local data collection and evaluation strategy alongside a range of partners, making strategic recommendations on the basis of data insights. You will develop data sharing agreements and data management protocols with a wide-range of local organisations. You will help to establish Feltham Early Learning Community as a data-driven initiative with a strong learning culture, which uses insights to drive decision-making and improvement for children and families. In addition you will:
- Carry out and support others to carry out local evaluations of individual interventions, and support the Executive Lead to monitor impact
- Work closely with the external evaluation team to build local evaluation capacity, to develop and populate a Data Dashboard and to maintain a Client Monitoring System (or equivalent)
- Build and maintain networks with data leads from across our local partner organisations
- Collate and monitor localised and hyper local public data (to fit the Early Learning Community’s geographical boundaries) and explore where child and family-level data can be linked across datasets to advise on current and future interventions
- Draft reports for the project board and help produce other written materials.
To be successful you will have strong analytical and statistical skills with experience of both quantitative and qualitative research methods. You will have a good understanding of national and local child and family datasets and how to gain access to them, as well as experience of using data to advise and inform activity. You will be a pro-active and solutions focused individual with project management experience and a detailed knowledge of CRM systems. In addition you will have:
- Experience of evaluating programmes and social interventions.
- Experience of using data management tools to manage and analyse data (such as Excel, R statistics and / or SPSS, pivot tables, VLOOKUP, INDEXMATCH and data linkage)
- The ability to produce well-crafted, accessible reports for board meetings
- A degree with equivalent postgraduate level training in statistics and data analysis
- Experience of working with datasets in local public service systems and of developing and implementing data sharing agreements
- Experience of working with children’s services and schools.
