Changemaker Education Coordinator
£ 24,328 - £28,193 per annum (dependent on experience)
UWC Atlantic is at the heart of a powerful global movement and at the vanguard of progressive education worldwide. We are proud to be a part of the UWC family of 18 schools and colleges worldwide – and for our courage to champion the values, ideas and aspirations in which we all believe. We are driven by the UWC mission to make education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future. It drives everything we do.
We continue to embrace the spirit of those pioneers who not only created the College in Wales in 1962 and launched the UWC movement in 1967 but who also co-created the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme, in collaboration with the International School of Geneva (Ecolint) and UN International School in New York (UNIS).
Our multicultural student body, from over 90 countries every year, comprises young people from vastly differing political, religious, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. They are selected to attend UWC Atlantic based on their demonstrated promise and potential, to make a difference in the fields of sustainability, social justice and peace. These inspirational young people are the next generation of change makers, empowered to go on to careers and lives that create impact locally, nationally and globally.
At the forefront of our exciting strategy is the development of an innovative ‘Changemaker Curriculum’ - a suite of courses and learning experiences that enable our students become social innovators and fulfil the UWC mission. Working closely with the Director of Learning Innovation, you will be responsible for coordinating and supporting the development, delivery and evaluation of this.
Dynamic, driven and with the determination to make a real difference, you value holistic and interdisciplinary approaches to learning and development and have experience of supporting students to develop the knowledge, understanding, skills and experiences to be successful in a rapidly changing world and to live for the common good.
This role is student facing - developing generative relationships with students, motivating and inspiring them; colleague facing - building capacity to innovate through our existing teams; and outward facing – maintaining and developing our partner base to support our learning innovation. You have a deep desire to deliver impact through innovative educational programmes.
