The Northern College is a further education provider specifically focused on furnishing adults with the opportunities to make the best of themselves, their future and their potential. The college is set on a hilltop with panoramic views of the town of Barnsley and provides residential and day courses to adults from every walk of life and every level of learning.
Following the appointment of their new Principal & Chief Executive in Autumn 2018, the college is going through a period of change, impacted by the impending devolution of the Adult Education Budget, changes in society and the desire to continue to provide quality education to adults from across the country. This is not just a local college, but a national one, attracting adults from the furthest points of the country who flock to the college because of its quality provision, committed staff team and the opportunities that are available.
As the Assistant Principal – Curriculum, Quality & Market Development you will be an integral member of the Executive Leadership Team, driving the success and sustainability for the future. You will work closely with the Executive Leadership Team to achieve this through the successful design and delivery of the annual business plan, in line with local and national priorities, market/employer requirements and the local community.
You will be an inclusive leader with the ability to engage your team, your colleagues and the wider staff team, and involve them in the journey the college has to take over the coming months. As the Inspection Nominee, you will need to be fully confident in leading and continuing to be an ‘Outstanding’ provider achieved through delivery of high-quality teaching, learning and assessment that ultimately results in positive student outcomes, destinations and staff satisfaction.
This is an exciting opportunity for you to lead the continued success of an ‘Outstanding’ college and also be part of its journey in securing the provision for the college’s future. This may be achieved through development of the commercial provision, partnerships and external income generation, although as the lead on this it will be your decision and your responsibility to make it happen.
