Completed application forms should be returned to NRCSE, 356 Holloway Road, London N7 6PA by 9 March 2020. Fine to get yours in by email for that date and signed copy to arrive soon after.
We’re always looking for people from a wide range of backgrounds, who can bring different perspectives.
We campaign throughout England on behalf of supplementary/mother-tongue schools and their students, tutors and leaders. We work with community-based organisations 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, over 500 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 in the project 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 out-of-school settings to adopt safe and effective practices, develop the teaching and learning taking place in their settings, and move on to quality assure their provision and gain the NRCSE Quality Mark. You will be expected to forge strong working and learning relations with community management 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 9th March 2020. We hope to interview shortlisted candidates on 20th or 23rd March at our office on Holloway Road, London N7
