We’re growing our team!
Join the Bradford Birth To 19 team and make a difference in children’s lives!
Part of a small but growing team, the Marketing and Communications Officer will have the opportunity to work on two of our main projects, 50 Things To Do Before You’re Five and our Initial Teacher Training Programme.
Working with Bradford Birth To 19 is unique! Bradford Birth to 19 is a rapidly-growing, school-based organisation that is making a significant contribution to improved learning, health and mental wellbeing outcomes for children and young people in Bradford, and increasingly across the whole of England.
An important focus for us is the improvement of pre-school settings and schools. We work collaboratively with over 100 schools (nursery, primary, special and secondary), providers of day-care and charities in the local area. We are held up as a model of outstanding school leadership within Early Years and in parent partnership, with a strong record of success in Initial Teacher Training. We are a significant partner for DfE-funded work in the Bradford Opportunity Area, supporting a five-year initiative to improve social mobility in Bradford.
We train and recruit teachers and school leaders. We work with schools, universities, health, the charity sector and local and national government partners with the aim of making Bradford a better place to grow up and go to school. While much of our work is with schools, we also work with parents, the voluntary sector, health and community groups to support regeneration initiatives in the district.
We work significantly within the Bradford and West Yorkshire area, though we are now increasingly working on a national scale, with developing international interest in our work.
This post will involve significant support for our innovative 50 Things To Do Before You’re Five initiative. 50 Things seeks to help every child reach important development, health, learning, and wellbeing milestones, by providing 50 low or no-cost ideas for play to the people who care for them. 50 Things is now being rolled to Local Authority areas across the UK - each locality has its own local 50 Things offer. Have a look at our app and see what it is all about!
To find out more about Bradford Birth To 19, hear directly from our Director, Christian Bunting and 50 Things National Lead, Andrea Layzell. These sessions will be on Tuesday 7th December at noon, and Friday 10th December, 3 pm. To attend one of these two hour-long opportunities, please book a space by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The job opening closes on the 17th of December, 2021 at 9 am.
