The Royal Ballet School is one of the world’s greatest centres of classical ballet training. Our mission is to nurture, train and educate exceptional young dancers for the Royal Ballet companies and other leading UK and international companies, and to inspire the future of classical ballet training. Our vision is to be the best classical ballet school in the world.

Our core academic offer at the Upper School in Covent Garden is the BA(Hons) Degree in Classical Ballet and Dance Performance.

We are seeking a Learning Manager and an Assistant Learning Manager to launch, develop and manage this strand of our broader academic offer. Both will be an integral part of the wider academic team at the Upper School and will work with, and support, some of the most talented young dancers in the world.

The non-degree team will work closely together, and manage all aspects of the non-degree programme. They are expected to collaborate with those teaching on the degree programme, EAL and SEND specialists where appropriate, and pastoral staff, in order to provide a complete academic support network for each student in their care.

The post holder will play a full and active role in the broader life of the School, pastorally and artistically.

Hours: 0.5 FTE . Working hours are defined as 8.15am to 12.15pm Monday to Friday during term time.
