£71,993 to £77,798 annually

We pride ourselves on the work and enthusiasm of our teaching and support teams and are a small, friendly school. Our staff members are dedicated to assisting students in realizing their goals and are active scholars or practitioners in their fields.

Our mission is to enable faculty, staff, and students to positively impact our planet by enhancing the health and wellbeing of people, animals, plants, and the environment as a whole. By growing our teaching, resources, viewpoints, and ambitions toward this objective, we hope to now improve and further solidify the School’s reputation.

We’re eager to take on this task, and we hope it will motivate you.

We’re looking to hire a Head of Further Education in the School of ARES to help develop and carry out the school’s strategic goals as well as oversee the portfolio and provision expansions for further education.

You will be a seasoned leader, a skilled communicator, and passionate about using creative pedagogy to improve quality and help students. You will seek out ways to improve the student experience while working with the other heads of departments and the school executive team, reporting to the executive dean of the school. This will include evaluating and putting into practice cutting-edge pedagogical methods, making sure students take advantage of additional opportunities, and ultimately maximizing our students’ employability or suitability for further study. Since this is a senior leadership position with line management responsibilities and involves working with students, you will need to be exceptionally able to communicate. You should also have a solid understanding of further education, preferably with knowledge of the provision of land-based subjects.

Direct inquiries should be sent via email to dawn.scott@ntu.ac.uk, the Executive Dean of the School of Animal Rural and Environmental Sciences. Go to www.ntu.ac.uk/jobs to access the NTU employment page and submit your application there.

Applicants should be accompanied by a complete curriculum vitae that includes all pertinent education, experience, employment history, and accomplishments. A covering letter that briefly outlines how applicants fulfill the requirements in the person specification, their interest in the position, and what they feel they can contribute to the post should be submitted with each CV.

The School of Animal, Rural, and Environmental Sciences (ARES), which is based on the 200-hectare Brackenhurst campus estate, is made up of a committed group of instructors, lecturers, researchers, and students who are committed to the same vision of empowering staff and students to have a positive impact on our planet by enhancing the health and wellbeing of environments, animals, plants, and people. By growing our teaching, resources, viewpoints, and ambitions toward this objective, we hope to now improve and further solidify the School’s reputation. We’re eager to take on this task, and we hope it will motivate you.

Your interests will need to be in the land-based sector with recent experience of vocational qualifications to help us further enhance our academic offer. Our current Further Education provision includes BTec, level 2 and level 3, T levels, and Access to HE in subjects spanning Agriculture, Animal Care, Animal Management, Equine Management, Countryside, and Apprenticeships. For agriculture, animal and equestrian studies, environmental conservation, and food technology, our campus is adequately furnished with laboratories and specialized units.
