About the Inclusion in Science Programme

At the ASE we want to ensure that young people can reach their potential and that their choices are not limited when it comes to studying science subjects. Our expertise in science education and inclusion is combined in one fully supported and remotely delivered CPD programme, available to teachers of science who recognise inclusion is key to addressing gaps in engagement and attainment for different groups of students.

The Association for Science Education (ASE) is one of the largest subject associations in the UK. We are an active membership body that has been supporting all those involved in science education from preschool to higher education for over 100 years; members include teachers, technicians, tutors and advisers. We are a Registered Charity with a Royal Charter, owned by our members and independent of government. We seek to create a powerful voice for science education professionals in order to make a positive and influential difference to the teaching and learning of science throughout the UK and internationally.

Key Purpose of the Role

This role sits within the Inclusion in Science team in the ASE, with the team working remotely, and will involve administrative support for the Inclusion in Science Programme, working closely with the Programme Manager, the four Programme Leads (resource development, mentoring and coaching, evaluation, and communications) and the wider team. Duties will include a variety of tasks such as supporting with programme co-ordination and module delivery, dealing with enquires from participants, liaising with the delivery team and record-keeping.

 Person specification

We are looking for a Programme Administrator with excellent communication skills and a professional manner when dealing with internal and external stakeholders.

No specific training is required for this role. The following skills however are essential:

·       Excellent interpersonal and written communication skills with a friendly and positive manner

·       Ability to deal confidently with internal and external contacts at all levels of seniority

·       Strong teamwork skills

·       Excellent organisational and planning skills including a good attention to detail and an ability to multi-task.

·       Experience of dealing with a varied workload with tight deadlines.

·       Strong IT skills, particularly the Microsoft Office suite and managing and updating databases.

·       The ability to represent the Charity in a professional way at all times

Whilst an interest in science and in diversity and inclusion would be helpful, experience of working in these areas is not essential.
