The National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance (NCJAA) is seeking an experienced researcher to evaluate our professional mentoring scheme.
About the NCJAA professional mentoring scheme
The NCJAA’s purpose is to promote effective practice, undertake and showcase specialist work and research, provide opportunities for skills, knowledge and network development, raise the profile of the sector, inform related policy and build sector sustainability and resilience. The professional mentoring scheme is an annual scheme that has been running since 2013-14. Through the scheme, we aim to share knowledge of arts and criminal justice across our network by providing opportunities for early career practitioners to get support and guidance from experts within the field. The scheme is intended to expand opportunities for individuals to develop professional skills and knowledge in the field of arts and criminal justice through one-to-one mentoring relationships.
We are looking for someone to produce a summary evaluation report covering effectiveness of the scheme and practical recommendations for improvements when the scheme recommences in 2021.
This will involve analysis of content from a mentor focus group (carried out earlier in the year), and other qualitative research activities as appropriate (e.g. conducting a series of interviews with key stakeholders, including current and former mentees and mentors).
