The School of Health at Leeds Beckett University launched in September 2021, drawing together all our health-related professions and disciplines to create a thriving academic community. We are passionate about developing the future workforce that our society and partners need, and the inclusive opportunity apprenticeships can provide.
To realise our ambition, we have created a new role within the School, the Head of Apprenticeships, who will play a pivotal role in our strategic and operational direction for degree apprenticeships and ensure that we provide an attractive and excellent experience for apprentices and employers.
We are seeking someone with a strong appreciation of the transformative opportunity apprenticeships can provide, and critically someone with significant knowledge and understanding of higher apprenticeships or degree apprenticeships; experience of working with OfSTED and ESFA are highly desirable.
This is a School-wide role reporting directly to the Dean. The successful candidate will provide leadership, oversight and development for the School’s apprenticeship programmes (currently 7) and work closely with the School Executive Team.
The appointee will work with a wide range of academic partners in the School as well as professional support colleagues. The ability to co-ordinate colleagues at all levels of our University and act as a source of guidance and influence for staff and apprentices will form a key part of the role. The appointee will work to ensure all elements of the apprenticeship are followed and will be responsible for co-ordination and enhancement of our programmes.
This is an exciting opportunity to work across boundaries, implementing change where appropriate to improve processes and to provide guidance and support to apprentices and colleagues across the School.
We encourage applications from those currently working outside of Higher Education as well as those within.
Closing date: Monday 24th January 2022 (Midnight)
