We are looking to recruit an experienced and motivated graduate intern to develop and deliver an agreed programme of outreach activity within West Cumbria for the Cumbria Collaborative Outreach Programme (CCOP), part of OfS’s (Office for Students’s) national initiative to ensure Government targets to double the number of young people from WP backgrounds in Higher Education by 2020 are met. The post-holder will report to the CCOP area officer under the guidance of the CCOP manager.
The University of Cumbria is the lead institution for CCOP – the Cumbria consortium, which includes partners ranging from higher education institutions, further education colleges and employers operating within Cumbria. The post will be based within the University of Cumbria but will work for the consortium and report to the CCOP Manager. The programme aims to work in identified target wards with specific young people in three key areas of Cumbria to provide sustained, progressive and intensive outreach in order to broaden aspirations and ultimately increase progression to higher education. This post will support the co-ordinating of the programme throughout Furness.
