Capability Scotland is seeking to appoint a Head of College to develop, open and lead Corseford College from January 2022. Corseford College will be a new provision in the West of Scotland, providing continued education for young people aged 18 – 25 who have complex additional support needs. This exciting new College will provide continued access to education from September 2022 for those young people for whom a mainstream college environment would not be suitable.
This post is a permanent post; however, secondments will be considered. If applicants are wishing to be considered as a secondment, prior approval from current employer must granted.
The college is developed around seven underpinning principles:
- Provide young adults with the learning needed to allow them to develop as successful individuals.
- A provision that is built on the basis of a common educational journey.
- Equip learners to make choices about their lifelong learning pathway.
- Support the learning of individuals using innovative and progressive teaching methods.
- Ensure that education is accessible to all.
- Recognise and build on prior learning and achievements
- Treat each student as unique, supporting them on a differentiated pathway, to learn and develop as individuals
In addition to our tutors, the college students will have access to a dedicated care team led by a Student Support Manager, who will be responsible for all aspects of social care and student support and will report to the Head of College.
Our ideal candidate will be an experienced, ambitious and enthusiastic leader in the specialist sector. Candidates must be driven by excellence and focused on continuous improvement and development. The Head of College will be supported strategically by our Director of Children’s Services.
Experience of working in the additional support needs sector would be a significant advantage as is the possession of a thorough understanding of Further Educational frameworks and experiential learning. A record of leading curriculum development or review and delivering organisational improvement is highly desirable as is the ability to work with cross-functional teams.
This role is being advertised as a permanent position; we will however also consider applications from candidates who would like to be considered on a secondment basis. We would expect any secondment to last two years.
Candidates that are interested in discussing the role should contact Chris Mollins, Development Officer, in the first instance, on 07986 603 803 or email Chris.Mollins@Capability.Scot quoting reference CS210801.share this page:
