The Centre for Transforming Access and Student Outcomes in Higher Education (TASO) is a new affiliate What Works Centre for higher education. TASO is seeking a Programmes Officer to support a range of research projects aimed at developing a better understanding of what works to support widening participation and student success.
Under the guidance of the Research Programmes Manager and Evidence & Evaluation Manager, the Programmes Officer will help commission a programme of external research involving practitioners, evaluators and researchers from multiple institutions. They will work across these projects to manage and monitor progress, collate findings, analyse data and help steer the overall research programme. They may also undertake research projects themselves, including synthesis of secondary research; conducting qualitative, quantitative and/or survey research.
The successful candidates will join a growing team of staff who are taking TASO forward as it spins out of King's College London to become an independent charity in late 2020.
