About the Sixth Form
Newcastle Sixth Form College is an aspirational and inclusive community dedicated to helping young people fulfil their potential. Students thrive in a culture of mutual respect, increased freedom, and high expectations. Student progress is in the top 25% nationally and students at the college are 11% more likely to progress to university based on their GCSE results than at other providers.
You will coordinate the UCAS application process to help students understand the benefits of university and ensure that those who wish to progress to university fulfil their ambition. You will have particular responsibility for coordinating progression support for Honours Programme students including those applying for early entry universities and courses. You will coordinate progression support for students from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds to ensure they make effective progress towards an aspirational progression plan, which for most will be university.
This is a 37 hour per week term time only post allowing you to pursue other interests in the summer.
Who we are looking for
You will be an inspirational and hardworking graduate who strongly believes in the benefits of university. You will have high academic standards for yourself and for the students you work with.

You will undertake an intensive handover process with the existing UCAS coordinator to ensure that you fully understand the UCAS process at NSFC and are able to coordinate and develop it further.
