Living and working independently is a vital step towards integration and reintegration for survivors of modern slavery and human trafficking. Survivors should have access to opportunities to develop the skills, knowledge and experience necessary to achieve their goals, but this is often not the case.
St Mary’s University is setting up an innovative project to develop and run (in summer 2020) a ‘proof of concept’ Summer School for survivors of modern slavery and human trafficking. The Summer School will provide an intensive learning opportunity on a broad range of topics to survivors of modern slavery in a friendly, supportive and high-quality educational environment.
We are currently recruiting an experienced and passionate Project Officer to lead this project and create a successful model that can be used in the future to increase educational opportunities for survivors of modern slavery.
Working closely with partner organisations and the Centre for the Study of Modern Slavery at St Mary’s University, the Project Officer will be responsible for planning, designing and implementing the summer school. The Project Officer’s work will be overseen by the Centre’s Director, and the individual will have direct access to the Centre’s networks.
