Educating audiences through the development of learning programmes and resources, engaging disadvantaged or unengaged groups, managing volunteers and facilitators as well as other internal and external stakeholders, managing end to end projects, budgets and programme delivery. These roles vary depending on the size of the project and team size but are generally responsible for ensuring the projects run efficiently, and within budget. Many of these roles can be appointed on a contract basis to cover immediate needs or to initiate newly funded programmes.

Responsibilities and Duties for Projects & Programmes Roles

Education programme and project roles in charities often include the engagement of audiences through the development and delivery of learning resources. These will often work with an aim of engaging disengaged groups into key areas such as the Arts, STEM, careers and raising aspirations. Roles will include Outreach positions to engage with schools, employers, volunteers and target groups such as young people, BME (black and minority ethnic) groups and women in order to attract people to partake in the programme.

Other roles will be responsible for the development of resources sometimes in line with the national curriculum, key government strategies, funder based outcomes or the organisation’s ethos and goal. Delivery roles are also common in Education Programmes and Projects, facilitating workshops in schools, colleges, youth groups and centres, museums and heritage sites to either small groups, classrooms or large audiences. Many of these roles will also involve  volunteer management and partnership development with key community organisations and corporate or local businesses to secure funding or volunteers through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). These roles often involve budget management and line management.
