Your role in our journey
As Post-16 Partnership Manager, you will liaise with learning and skills providers to ensure there are sufficient, appropriate education, training and apprenticeship places for all young people in Barnsley. You will take a key role in commissioning education places for post-16 learners with learning difficulties and/or disabilities and promoting opportunities for vulnerable learners. The role will see you collaborating with colleagues across the council to coordinate the council’s offer of employability experiences for students in the borough’s schools and to lead delivery and monitoring of the Barnsley MBC corporate apprenticeship programme. The role will see you contribute towards Barnsley wide developments, implementation of the Raising Participation and I Know I Can strategy and plans to ensure support to local economic growth.
What you’ll need
To join us, you’ll need a relevant degree and proven experience of working in the post-16 education sector. Your previous experience will have given you a thorough understanding of the legislative and policy frameworks for Post 16 learners including Raising Participation and 14 – 19 (learners with learning difficulties and/or disabilities to 24yrs) education and training. Your leadership experience has enabled you to demonstrate strong inter-personal and communication skills and has given you a good understanding of quality assurance processes. Your passion to improve outcomes for young people all you do.
