Community Cohesion Project Manager

Project Manager £8,000 (approx 20 days)

CfSA Community Cohesion Project

The Council for Subject Associations (CfSA) has been awarded a grant to develop resources for subject teachers by the Community Cohesion Unit of the Department of Children, Schools and Families.  In order to meet the requirements of the grant, we are seeking to appoint a project manager to oversee the project.  The successful candidate will co-ordinate a team of subject specialists from ten subject associations for the humanities and arts to map and publicise good quality resources to promote community cohesion and prevent violent extremism through the curriculum. The project manager will work directly to the Chief Executive of CfSA

The work will involve the following tasks:

·      Coordinate the work of contributors ensuring deadlines are met;

·      Work with the subject associations to identify a teacher/practitioner for each subject to peer review the materials and ensure the quality of the contributions;

·      Prepare an interim progress report for DCSF by 30th June 2009;

·      Submit draft materials to CfSA for consideration and share with all contributors

·      Liaise with contributors to review and revise drafts

·      Liaise with the CEO and the web designer over the format of the resource, including the design of a web page for each participating subject association to publicise the identified resources;

·      Test materials as part of the mapping process for ease of use and technical reliability;

·      Submit final draft resource set to CfSA for consideration by CCU

·      Undertake any revisions required;

·      Liaise with the web developer to publish the resource set;



 The deadline for the presentation of the completed resource set is 31st October 2009.
