Salary: £44,432 to £53,189 + Benefits
Contract term: Permanent

The merger of Sussex Coast College and Sussex Downs College will create East Sussex College Group - and a new era in education for the county. From Hastings, Eastbourne, Newhaven and Lewes, we’ll deliver real-world skills for a changing world and boost local businesses, communities and families. 

You can be part of it from year zero - shaping our curriculum and delivering exceptional outcomes for our students.

Taking the next step in your career and making your mark in 16-19 education, you will set stretching but realistic SMART targets for your team and manage all aspects of the learning journey - from recruitment through course delivery, support, retention, attainment and progression.

Whilst focusing on a specific area of cross-college responsibility - English and Maths, 16-19 Study Programmes, Value Added, Work-Based Learning, Progression/Destination or Employability (including Social Action and Work Experience) - you will enjoy real impact on the progression of every student, as well as our bottom line. 

Equally importantly, you will act as designated inspection lead in your specialist area and will secure significant funding, whilst driving our Quality Improvement Plan and coaching your colleagues to reach their full potential.

With expert understanding of at least one of the specialist areas above, you will combine a relevant degree or vocational certification with a formal teaching qualification. Needless to say, you will be highly experienced in managing curriculum areas and leading teams to achieve income and student outcome targets, and you will be passionate about innovative teaching and learning.

A structured yet creative problem solver, you will bring a demonstrable record of raising performance, participation and retention, and you will be ready to introduce some exciting new courses and pathways. 

Finally, leadership, management and assessor qualifications would be very useful, as would familiarity with developing business plans, but it’s your sharp strategic mindset and hands-on approach that will matter most.
