Physics Mentoring Project National Coordinator

Cardiff University leads the Physics Mentoring project, which will mentor year 11 students in 10-12 schools across Wales with a view to increase take-up of physics at A-level (or other post-16 qualifications). It builds upon an award-winning Modern Foreign Languages mentoring project run by the Cardiff University School of Modern Languages. The mentors will be undergraduate and postgraduate students based at 4-5 Welsh Higher Educations institutions, and will mentor small groups of students in nearby schools in weekly sessions over the course of 6 weeks. The mentors will be trained in mentoring skills, and provided with materials and bespoke set of equipment to use in the sessions. Two cohorts will be mentored, in Feb-March 2019 and Oct-Nov 2019, with an interim report in July 2019 and final report January 2020.


You will provide advice, guidance and support to the Project Lead and steering committee to ensure the successful delivery of project targets on time and within budget. This will involve coordinating activity across the Universities and close cooperation with our educational partners, in HE institutions, in schools and colleges, and in Welsh educational consortia. In particular, a key role will be acting as a liason between the school/college teachers, the regional partners in HE institutions, and the mentors. You will ensure compliance with all contractual, administrative and reporting requirements of HEFCW funding and the University. You will work with an external evaluator to gather, collate and interpret evaluation data from a range of stakeholders. This will include organizing and supporting the project Steering Committee. You will be supported in this role by School administrative staff and staff working in Research and Innovation Services, as well as colleagues in the School of Modern Languages.
