About The Access Project ("TAP")

 The Access Project is a groundbreaking charity that helps students from disadvantaged backgrounds win places at top universities. This is an issue that matters: at present the most affluent young people are 6 times more likely to attend a highly selective university than their less privileged peers. Unsurprisingly this is a significant factor in the decline in social mobility in the UK in recent years, and we are working to fix it.

The main way we address this issue is by helping students from less affluent backgrounds to achieve better grades: we match our students with a volunteer graduate who tutors them for an hour a week. We also have a team of talented Programme Coordinators who work directly in schools to deliver university support that enables our students to progress to competitive universities.  The Access Project is a regional organisation working in London and the Midlands.

One of the things that makes us unique is the way we work in close partnership with schools, ensuring that our tutorials become a teaching aid that teachers use to help their students do better. The Access Project is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

About the role The Access Project (TAP) is an evidence-based, data driven intervention. Central to our programme are the ways in which we use data to ensure each of our students receives the provision they need, to learn about how we can improve our delivery and to evaluate our impact on our students’ university prospects. We have developed sophisticated monitoring and evaluation systems bringing together data from a variety of sources to track students’ progress (impact management) as well as ascertain their outcomes (impact evaluation). We collect data on our students’ academic and socio-demographic background, their participation on TAP’s programme and progress on our bespoke university readiness scales and their academic results and university destinations. We use this data to intervene in real-time when delivery goes off-course but also to understand and internally and externally publicize our impact.

As part of the Impact Team, The Data & Insight Coordinator will be responsible for ensuring the Impact and Delivery Teams have all the data, analyses and reports they need to deliver and monitor our programme timely and effectively. They will manage, analyse, interpret and present data and information, most of it recorded on our Salesforce system, in order to optimise the quality of delivery, maximise the achievement of outcomes by participants and ensure that the project achieves the greatest possible social impact.

The Access Project is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and fully expects the Data & Insight Coordinator to share this commitment.
