Bilborough Sixth Form College in Nottingham is seeking an inspirational and dynamic Director of Curriculum and Quality to lead on key aspects of our well-developed systems of curriculum planning, quality assurance and student performance monitoring (with associated data analysis).

 The person appointed will take up post at our successful, popular and inclusive sixth form college at an exciting time as it joins the newly established Better Futures Multi Academy Trust as one of just two founding sixth form colleges.

We are proud of our consistently strong academic results. Just as important, is our commitment to ensuring that students leave us with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to enter the global workplace. There is already much to be proud of at Bilborough, but we refuse to rest in our pursuit of excellence. As we enter the next phase of our development, we need to build on our successes and embrace future challenges. 

Joining a dynamic and dedicated Senior Leadership Team, you will play a key role in embedding the vision and strategy of the College, innovate further and develop productive relationships and partnerships across the Trust.

For the right candidate who is able to demonstrate sound knowledge of quality systems and a track record of achieving significant improvements in provision, this role presents the opportunity to contribute more widely across the newly established trust.

This is an exciting opportunity to take the next step in your leadership career in a College where talented and dedicated staff strive to build on our high standards and our strong local and regional reputation, with the support of a committed local governing body. This role will have strong appeal to candidates with a successful track record of leadership in a College or 11-18 school and will be seeking a Deputy Principal or Principal role in the future.
