Deputy Director of Learning and Teaching

The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama

The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (Central) invites applications for a creative and collaborative Deputy Director of Learning and Teaching. This is a school-wide leadership role, focusing on supporting programme leaders and their teams, and ensuring the day-to-day success of the School and curriculum. You will be a developing academic leader, combining strong management skills with a clear record of excellence in teaching in higher education, and strong individual research and/or scholarship. While the area of academic specialism is open, we strongly encourage application from people working across questions of inclusive practice in the arts. You will contribute to Central’s distinctive specialist identity in training practitioners and researchers who will shape the future of theatre and performance.

Reporting to the Director of Learning and Teaching, you will work with the Dean and other senior staff to implement strategies, contributing to academic and curriculum development, ensuring Central maintains its world-leading position and meets the diverse needs of its student body, as well as contributing to the ongoing diversification of Central and its programmes. You will collaborate closely with Academic Registry, ensuring that the student experience remains at the heart of Central’s provision. This will involve leading the curricular portfolio review cycle, using data to inform improvement, and ensuring academic staff remain abreast of sector developments and best practice. The role holder will also work with programme teams to ensure workloads are sustainable and maintain a rewarding and collaborative environment.

You will be a persuasive communicator and champion of our commitment to the highest quality of student and staff experience. While the role’s priority is primarily supporting teaching excellence, there may be occasional teaching and you will contribute to our knowledge exchange profile.

Central values, embraces and is dedicated to equity, diversity and inclusion. Our mission is contingent on a diverse and inclusive student and staff body, bringing richness, knowledge, innovation, new understandings and skills. We especially welcome people to apply from backgrounds historically underrepresented in the drama Conservatoire and Higher Education sector, and who are committed to building and sustaining a diverse, inclusive and equitable environment and industry.
