The Liverpool Education and Employment Partnership (LEEP) involves Civil Service Local working closely with Liverpool City Council, youth charity The Prince’s Trust and a variety of employers. We want a flexible, motivated person to work with the head of the partnership to put together a structured work programme for the schoolchildren that will be specific to each employer. You would use your skills and experience to help schoolchildren aged from 14 to 16 who have found it difficult to reach their potential in a mainstream school setting.
Schoolchildren will be able to see for themselves how subjects they are studying such as English, maths and science are used in the workplace. Learning in a working environment will also help them to improve how they communicate with different types of people. The partnership team will work with local and national employers to give schoolchildren an in-depth experience of working in different jobs. In particular, they will spend time in Civil Service offices in Liverpool, finding out about the wide variety of jobs available and learning what life is like as a civil servant.
We are looking for a Higher Executive Officer. You will need to commit to half a day per week, increasing to 1 day per week from December 2019 to March 2020 as the partnership expands.
This is a great chance to support your local community, improve the life chances of schoolchildren and to develop your leadership skills. If you want to find out more, please contact Anne Isherwood.
