To support the Deputy Head Pastoral, Cheltenham College seeks to fill the new and exciting position of Director of Pupil Welfare. The successful applicant will be an experienced professional with extensive knowledge of the needs of young people; ideally in a school environment.
Very much a hands-on role, the Director of Pupil Welfare will be responsible for line managing and building robust links between key Pastoral departments such as Matrons, the Health Centre and Student Support Services to name a few, as well as providing on-call emergency cover for welfare incidents.
Not only will the successful applicant be a strong leader, but they will also be a strong team player with excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to deal effectively with colleagues at all levels, parents and external agencies. A positive outlook is essential as well as the ability to work efficiently on multiple cases with short timescales.
