The Secondary Schools Education Programme is a collaborative pilot project between the Huddersfield Town Foundation and secondary schools in the Kirklees area. The project’s aim is to provide opportunities for learning and life skills that enable disengaged young people to fulfil their potential, both personally and academically, regardless of background or ability. In this managerial position you will play a crucial role in leading educational interventions, supporting other project staff, and influencing young people, their choices and ultimately, their future.

Candidates must have recent experience of working in a secondary school or other youth setting and proven experience of planning and delivering interventions in a range of areas, including behaviour, attendance and education. Candidates must also have previous experience in a supervisory or line management role.


Applicants must be educated to a minimum of GCSE level or equivalent including Maths and English at grades A*-C (or 9-4) and hold both a current First Aid certificate, and a Safeguarding children qualification. Candidates must have a positive and professional attitude, be both tenacious and resilient, and have excellent interpersonal and communication skills to be able to perform well in this role.
