The university has created the role of Head of Postgraduate Taught Programmes as part of its continuing drive for excellence. This role is key to the success of the taught postgraduate programmes (excluding PGCE programmes) in the School of Education and thus the work of the School itself.

This role exists to provide direction, challenge and support to the taught postgraduate programme convenors in the light of School and university priorities and strategic action plans. The successful candidate will sit on a newly formed School Leadership Group

The post holder will have some experience of leadership and management and will be expected to have a well-rounded understanding of how to translate strategic plans into positive outcomes for students and staff.

This is an exciting time for the university, with investment in new curricula, the construction of a new £35m state-of-the-art library and student accommodation, the development of a number of external partnerships across the globe and plans for more doctoral scholarships.

We have a strong emphasis on supporting our students to reach their full potential in order to launch themselves onto successful graduate careers. We are ranked the best modern university in London in major UK league tables and we are embarking on a radical programme of enhancement in learning and teaching across all our academic areas.

The University has a beautiful, vibrant parkland campus, is located in the heart of south-west London and offers excellent facilities for researching, learning, teaching, and working.
