About the role

The Senior Curriculum Leader sits within the Senior Leadership Team at Buxton and Leek College (BLC) and would be ideal for someone already working at a senior level or a candidate looking for career progression. You will have experience of the development, design and management of a broad Maths or English FE curriculum. BLC offers a range of maths, English and digital provision including essential and functional skills, GCSE and non accredited adult programmes, across four sites. Whilst  you will primarily be based at Buxton and Leek, this role will require travel between Leek, Buxton and to the University of Derby campuses when required.

You will have overall responsibility for managing a strong team of maths, English and digital tutors and coordinating the planning and delivery of all internal quality assurance processes associated with these programmes. This will include operating as the primary contact for all maths, English and digital external awarding bodies and driving improvements in the standard of teaching, learning and assessment through a range of interventions. Through the college matrix management structure, you will oversee the teaching, learning and assessment of your curriculum and make sure that programme, course and qualification pathways meet the expectations of students, the quality requirements of regulators and awarding bodies and local, regional and national skills gaps.

The Maths and English team at BLC won the TES Further Education Award for Outstanding GCSE Resits Provision in 2021 and we are keen to maintain our high achievement rates and learner outcomes.

We are looking for a candidate with experience of management in a Further Education and Training organisation who will  feel confident operating within a Higher Education Institution and with a range of internal and external stakeholders (local government, LEP's, employers etc).

Applications from job seekers who require sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. Whilst this role is eligible for sponsorship under the Skilled Worker Route, we recommend that you assess your individual eligibility before applying for this position.
