Currently operating as a traditional adult and community learning service, CALSS has recently been taken through a fundamental review. Following the outcome of this review, the Service is now going through a process of major change, realigning the focus of work to effectively respond to the needs and demands of the local communities, Combined Authority and Cambridgeshire County Council.

This is an exciting time for the Service. We are looking for a talented professional to become the Head of Service and take the key role in steering the Service in this new model.

Experience of working in a comparable service, college or educational provider is required alongside exceptional interpersonal skills and experience of fostering and working in partnership.

Within this role you must be ambitious, enjoy working to high standards whilst treating all students, staff, colleagues and partners with humanity and respect and able to:

● Be brave, discovering what’s possible, pushing the limits and seeking out new opportunities.
● Commit to each and every student, ensuring they are supported to reach their potential and be inspired to achieve.
● Understand the new framework and the importance of curricular design, knowing what outstanding looks like.

This is an exciting and innovative phase of the Service’s development and we are seeking to appoint a Head of Service who is equally excited and motivated by this opportunity and challenge. In return we offer a diverse and stimulating work environment in which no two days are the same and where you will have exceptional educational opportunities to amaze and inspire learners.
