TalentEd believes every young person deserves the support they need to flourish, regardless of background. We specialise in delivering high-quality tuition to disadvantaged young people. Our tutors are all qualified and experienced teachers, because they deliver the best learning for young people.
We are on an exciting growth journey. Since 2019 we have doubled the number of students we work with year-on-year for two years in a row, to over 1,000 students in 2020-21. In 2020 we were selected as one of only 33 organisations nationwide to deliver the government’s flagship National Tutoring Programme (NTP), and we recently launched a new programme – the Maths Masterclass Tutorials.
The outlook is bright. We expect to scale up significantly this year. We recently appointed former Chair of the Education Select Committee Neil Carmichael as Chair of our Board. We have a high-performing central team and are growing our pool of exceptional tutors.
About the role
Your primary responsibility will be collecting, analysing, and disseminating evidence about the impact we have. This covers a range of evidence types, from hard quantitative data on student attainment and attendance, to qualitative testimonials from our stakeholders and beneficiaries. These data will need to be analysed to understand the key insights and messages, and then condensed, synthesized and packaged to be shared. Dissemination is critical, and there are a range of different audiences that this is relevant for – our internal team, our school partners, students and their parents, and funders to name a few. Part of this will be leading on our Annual Impact Report. You will also have responsibility for our data governance, ensuring our use of data is in line with relevant legislation. Finally, you will support our Head of Operations with the implementation and development of data management and our CRM system (Salesforce).
