LEAPS Pre-UCAS External interviewers required

LEAPS is looking to employ casual interviewers to help carry out pre-UCAS interview work. This work runs from the end of August until November each year.  LEAPS are looking for people who can commit two or three days per week of their time during this interviewing season (Monday to Friday).

The pre-UCAS interviews help students to look at their choices for UCAS in light of their S5 results and their S6 curriculum. Interviews also cover areas like back-up options and personal statements and encourage the students to undertake their own research and attend Open Days if possible. At the end of each interview an action plan is prepared by the interviewer, a copy of which is sent to the student post-interview and a copy of which is held by LEAPS. LEAPS will follow up with the students and invite them to other activities throughout the year.

Interviews will be scheduled with schools in early August and we let interviewers know their commitments at that time. Training is usually held in late July or August and interviews start at the end of August.
This might suit student ambassadors or tutors, practitioners with background in admissions or widening participation who work, or are considering working on a more part-time basis or who are retiring or recently retired.

Further details are available here. Closing date is 14th June at 5pm and TEAMS interviews will take place on Monday 28th June 2021.
