The aim of the project is to raise the aspirations of young people aged 13 – 19, with a target of increasing the numbers entering into Higher Education including Degree/Higher Apprenticeships.

This is an exciting project with the first phase of funding guaranteed until 31st July 2019, however, it is anticipated that the project will run to December 2020.  

As this is a countywide and community focused project post-holders will be required to travel, occasionally outside of ‘normal’ working hours.
