The role of Principal at Nottingham College requires a student focused curriculum strategist with experience, drive, vision and commercial acumen.

Nottingham College is one of the largest colleges in the UK with 34,000 students, 1,300 dedicated employees and ten campuses across Nottingham. Our focus is always on developing employment opportunities for our students through creative and inspirational teaching, and substantial progress has been made across all our Faculties. We will continue to make progress through overhauling our curriculum offer to make sure the qualifications we deliver are most appropriate for the aspirations of our students and the needs of employers. We’ll also be heavily investing in our digital and IT infrastructure as well as continuing to review the quality of our estate and completing the capital build project of new £58m campus in the centre of Nottingham. 

Reporting to the CEO of Nottingham College and working as part of a collegiate and expert senior leadership team, as Principal you’ll lead all aspects of curriculum and student experience planning, delivery and review across a broad range of programmes and the entire organisation. With significant responsibility within the College we need you to be a commercially astute, strategic and visionary leader to ensure that our curriculum offer meets the needs of our students, businesses and employers, and supports the College in generating profitable revenue as a substantial business of education and training. We expect that you will do this whilst also ensuring a focus is kept on developing the quality of our provision and being the nominated person for regulatory inspections.

You’ll be collegiate in your approach to leadership, with a focus on inspiring your teams to make a difference to the lives of our students.

In our minds, our Principal will have a credible and extensive track record in making a positive impact on outcomes for students through the delivery of an innovative curriculum which inspires teaching staff to be the best that can be, raises the aspirations of students and meets the needs of employers and the local economy. It is essential that you can prove not only your experience but your resilience and tenacity to drive our College to become a truly employment led college with exceptional student services and achievements to be proud of.
