The National Resource Centre for Supplementary Education The National Resource Centre for Supplementary Education (NRCSE) is a national strategic and support organisation for community-led supplementary schools and the wider supplementary education sector across England. Established in 2006, we became an independent, registered charity (1150621) in 2013 and the national champion for excellence, innovation and partnership in supplementary education. We campaign throughout England on behalf of supplementary/mother-tongue schools and their students, tutors and leaders. We work with supplementary/mother-tongue schools to raise their profile and their standards of teaching, learning and management.
NRCSE facilitates the only nationally-recognised quality assurance scheme targeted specifically at providers of out-of-school education – the NRCSE Quality Mark. Since 2009, 499 organisations have completed basic safeguarding standards with 180 moving on to a higher award. Quality assured schools are listed on our online directory of schools according to region and subjects offered.
In order to quality assure supplementary schools we visit them, provide training, networking opportunities and support, guide them through our safeguarding code of practice and Quality Mark quality assurance scheme.
What will I be doing?
In this role, you will, in collaboration with other members of the Quality Development Team, provide a support and coordination service to supplementary schools within the six London boroughs including: mentoring towards quality assurance, signposting, brokering, advocacy and contributing toward existing initiatives supporting supplementary schools within each borough. You will also deliver our Good Management training.
The principle goals are to support supplementary schools to adopt safe and effective practices and move on to attend recognition meetings to quality assure their provision and gain the NRCSE Quality Mark. You will be expected to forge strong working and learning relations with supplementary school committees and staff involved in the project, visiting their classes and providing them with advice, identifying appropriate training opportunities, supporting them to complete management files and portfolios of evidence of their work. You will also be expected to build relations with the local CVS, mainstream schools, arts and heritage organisations and Children’s Services in the relevant boroughs.
The closing date for receipt of your application is 26th April 2019 and we hope to interview shortlisted candidates on Thursday 2nd May at our office on Holloway Road, London N7
