The Data, Insights and Evaluation Officer is a key role within our team and represents a fundamental support role within the project. Aspire to HE supports young people, traditionally underrepresented in Higher Education, in schools and colleges in the Black Country, Telford and Wrekin to make informed and ambitious decisions about their futures.
