This post is on a fixed term basis commencing as soon as possible and ending on 31 December 2018.

We are looking for a self-motivated, proactive and enthusiastic Careers Mentor who will inspire our students to succeed. 

The post-holder will work together with the other members of the Academy staff to help students raise aspirations, learn to their full potential and to make suitable Post 16 progression. This role will support the development, delivery and evaluation of the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Collaborative Outreach Programme (DANCOP) as part of the HEFCE funded National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP). NCOP aims to identify and address issues around progression into Higher Education. In particular, it seeks to undertake outreach activity in specific local areas where HE participation is low overall and lower than expected given GCSE attainment levels.

It is an exciting time at Da Vinci Academy with the appointment of a new Headteacher from January 2018. You will be part of Da Vinci Academy’s future development and the journey to securing improvement and raising standards across all areas.
