Welbeck – The Defence Sixth Form College
Director of Sport and the Co-Curriculum
The College is seeking to appoint a well-qualified, experienced and dynamic individual to join the Extended Leadership Team at our purpose-built residential Sixth Form College near Loughborough from September 2019.
The successful applicant will take responsibility for developing and enhancing our important, and highly-regarded, sports and co-curricular programme. You will play a key part in helping to develop the College’s future strategy in this and other areas. Applicants should be suitably qualified and experienced dynamic sports coaches, able to coach College sport to a high level, and have taught PE to 16-18 year old students. You will be expected to contribute significantly to the delivery of PE within the curriculum timetable, and also to the sport, activities and the wider personal development of students.
In leading these areas you will have responsibility for the development of up to 360 male and female students who have been preselected to join the armed forces or the MOD civil service. You will also have proven experience in pastoral matters, excellent leadership and people-management skills. Knowledge of boarding schools and an understanding of the military aspects of Welbeck College will be an advantage. For the right applicant there might be the potential for an additional resident pastoral role within a boarding house.
This is an exciting opportunity and we are keen to attract applicants seeking their first senior leadership role, whose experience might not, as yet, cover all aspects of the role. It would also suit someone who is keen to develop the depth of experience in preparation for deputy headship.
This is for a two year fixed term contract and the appointment will be suitably compensated on band L13 of the leadership scale, from £53,724.
