Skills, Knowledge and Experience
Are you passionate about supporting vulnerable young people to realise their potential? Can you work in school as part of a dedicated national team to support young people to get the very best from the education system? If so, this role may be for you.
At MCR, our driving force is simple – that young people who are in, or on the edges of the care system, will have the same educational outcomes, career opportunities and life chances as any other young person.
MCR young people tell their stories far better than us. Hear them in their own words in these short films of young people who have participated in the programme, reflecting on how mentoring has helped them create better futures for themselves:
We have had a transformational impact in schools and local authorities across Scotland and are looking for a Pathways Coordinator to join our regional team in Alva Academy, Clackmannanshire. The successful candidate will primarily be based in Alva Academy, supporting and learning from existing teams. Within this role, you will be an integral part of the school community, liaising with education colleagues and external stakeholders, and delivering the programme to young people.
Alva Academy's vision is ambitious, challenging and ongoing and reflects the needs of the community and the expectations stakeholders have of their school. By sharing our vision and values we seek to gain the collective commitment of all staff, pupils, parents and the wider community to ensure that our young people develop the necessary skills for life, learning and work.

We are looking to appoint experienced, enthusiastic and committed women, aged 16 years or over to our Board. We have several vacancies, one of which is the Chairperson’s position.
The Opportunity:This is an exciting opportunity to become part of our feminist governance team supporting and overseeing the development of the organisation to ensure the continued delivery of high quality, responsive services to vulnerable women, children and young people in our area.

We welcome applications from women with strategic vision, good independent judgement and the ability to work as part of a diverse team. We are committed to diversifying our Board so women representing all sections of the community are welcome!

We also strongly encourage women who have personal experience of domestic abuse to offer us their personal insight into accessing and using the range of services offered by women’s aid and partners.
Time Commitment:The Board currently meet monthly via Zoom. The frequency and the method of meeting will continue to be reviewed regularly to meet the needs of the organisation. It is important that prospective trustees recognise that they will also be, at times, responsible for progressing pieces of work in between meetings, either on an individual basis on behalf of the Board or as part of a short life working group or a sub-group of the Board. There is also an expectation that new trustees will fully participate in a comprehensive induction, as well as ongoing training and support.
