This post concentrates on the support of adult learners.  The LLC has developed various strands of activity that create opportunities to encourage the progression of adult learners from socially and economically deprived communities into higher education which is delivered by the Communities and Partnerships(C&P) team.  We are also supporting the retention and achievement of mature students throughout their educational journey.

This job entails taking a leadership role in the organising of public engagement and other events.  The widening participation portfolio is constantly developing and changing which will include the delivery of externally funded projects.  We expect the Officer to be a catalyst for change, ensuring that our processes and procedures are up-to-date technically in order to best meet the needs of our participants and staff.
