About the role

Surrey Adult Learning provides a wide range of community learning part-time day and evening courses to adults. Most courses are community learning but we have a growing provision of courses leading to formal qualification. We now aspire to grow our engagement with individuals from parts of the community under-represented in our current programme.

All Curriculum Managers report to the Deputy Principal and are responsible for a cluster of subject areas. Curriculum clusters can employ up to 100 part-time tutors. The Curriculum Managers, with the support of up to 6 (FTE) Assistant Curriculum Managers, each ensure that the course programme meets demand and is inclusive of a broad set of needs, is financially achievable and the quality of the teaching and learning is improved against standards set by Ofsted and embodied in the Service's Quality Framework. They will, with colleagues, manage the selection, appointment, performance and support of tutors and devise and implement a training programme to address tutor development needs.

This is an exciting opportunity to further develop through partnership working, manage and lead our Outreach learning programmes that can improve the wellbeing, employment prospects and life chances for Surrey residents. You will need to have empathy with, and a passion for, supporting and progressing adults who are facing dysfunction in their lives, unemployment, low aspirations or self-esteem. You will also have experience of reaching out to communities and building partnerships with other organisations.

This post has the additional responsibility for managing and leading our thriving exercise, dance and cookery programme of courses which largely take place in our dedicated adult learning centres.

Although this post is currently based at our Camberley Adult Learning Centre, travel within Surrey to our other centres and venues is a necessity so the post-holder will be a required car user. There will be occasional evening and weekend work.

To be shortlisted to interview for this position your application will clearly evidence:

  • a teaching qualification, experience of teaching adults and experience of a formal observation process aligned to an Ofsted inspection framework
  • experience of managing a team, using your initiative, prioritizing your own workload and meeting deadlines
  • the ability to identify, design and develop relevant curricula that have suitable breadth, depth and relevance to meet the needs and interests of learners
  • a proven track record that shows you are able to build partnerships and plan strategically with agencies who currently work with under-represented groups
  • experience of successfully working within an Ofsted inspection framework to ensure a high standard of provision and care for learners.
  • excellent written and oral communication skills and IT skills.
