Reporting to the Governance and Operations Officer, you will be responsible for managing the evaluation of this project. The UniConnect Programme is highly target driven, with targets set by the OfS at a national level and by the HOP consortium at a regional level. It is therefore critical that progress towards these targets and the impact of our outreach activities can be measured.

Your role will be to develop and oversee the data analysis, monitoring and evaluation of outreach activity; designing and developing a framework of evaluation measures and deploying qualitative and quantitative evaluation techniques to demonstrate the impact of the programme of sustained, progressive and targeted outreach activity on the progression of young people to HE within target wards.  

You will need to build and maintain excellent working relationships internally and externally to ensure there is robust evaluation in place for the programme and that it aligns with the national evaluation commissioned by the Office for Students.  You will be the main point of contact for evaluation, statistical analysis and data collection for the programme, providing advice and support to colleagues and partners.

Your responsibilities are likely to include:

  • Developing an evaluation framework for the programme in line with best practice
  • Quantitative data analysis, using statistical programs (SPSS or similar) to manipulate and interpret data
  • Analysis and manipulation of information and data

·Designing and coding surveys

·Reporting on progress against the programme’s Progression Framework, identifying gaps and providing analysis to inform commissioning framework

  • Advising on evaluation strategy
  • Conducting and/or advising on the conduction of evaluation activity such as focus groups, interviews and surveys
  • Collating data to produce reports and present results

·Designing and working within ethical procedures including application of GDPR and consent

  • Designing and conducting action research sets
  • Developing the learner voice including design and gathering of case studies
  • Liaison with schools/colleges to build relationships and evaluate impact of the programme

This role requires, at times, evening, overnight and weekend work.  There is also an expectation that, as the programme covers all four unitary authorities of the Humber sub region, there will be regular travel required on a weekly basis.

This post is fixed term until 31 July 2021. Initially funded until July 2021, it is intended that the programme runs for a further five years up to 2025 should reasonable progress towards targets be demonstrated and funding is confirmed by the Office for Students.

To discuss this role informally, please contact Emma Platt-Lowe, HOP Governance & Operations Officer :
