With the Health courses up and running and the move to the new T-level building, this is a fantastic opportunity to lead one of the College’s flagship T-levels.

Overseeing our four level 3 health pathways: mental health, nursing, T-level science, and Healthcare science alongside our level two health provision, you would be responsible for the design, delivery, and student outcomes of those programmes.

Here are some of the key roles that the post holder will be expected to do:

  • Organise and motivate the team
  • Work closely with apprenticeships subject staff, transition lead, HoF to plan and ensure the effective delivery of the programme
