Job Description:

We are looking for an enthusiastic and committed Programme Lead to run our Finding Futures programme on a freelance basis at Woodland View Junior School (Norwich) from September 2019 – March 2020.

This is a freelance role with a difference; a unique opportunity to have an incredible impact, by joining our ambitious team at this exciting stage in the charity’s growth. You will have significant ownership over your work, enabling you to thrive and grow your talents in a supportive, collaborative environment.

As a Programme Lead, you will be integral to the running of the Finding Futures programme at Woodland View Primary School and a vital link between the Yes Futures head office and the school. You will be responsible for ensuring the programme has a positive impact on the 10 students selected at the school, as well as managing a small volunteer Coaching team of 1-2 people. 

There is a total of 12 days delivery time, plus approximately 25 additional hours of programme preparation work, to be fitted around your own commitments.
All dates will be decided based on your schedule and the school’s availability, with the exception of the residential weekend which runs with other schools. This is likely to run from Friday 22nd – Sunday 24th November.
