An exciting opportunity has arisen for a forward-thinking professional to provide leadership and management within the Education Enhancement Directorate. Reporting to the University Secretary, the Directorate works in partnership with the executive academic leads for education: the Vice Principal, the Deputy Associate Principals (Learning and Teaching) and the Associate Principal, focusing on the delivery of outstanding education and student experience.
Working alongside the Director and Heads of Service, you will have responsibility for strategic, operational planning and implementation across the breadth of the Directorate activities, with a focus on student-centred delivery.
As part of the Education Enhancement Directorate senior management team, you will work proactively with the Director, Heads of Service, Senior Officers, faculties, professional services and the student community to support the implementation of the University’s strategic targets for Strathclyde 2025 and beyond, recognising the University’s ambitious plans for growth across postgraduate taught and postgraduate research populations.
The Education Enhancement Directorate delivers a broad range of services supporting the academic experience of students, in partnership with staff in faculties and other professional services including: Senate academic governance and management, quality enhancement and assurance, postgraduate research student development, online learning, educational technology, student surveys and analytics, and graduate & degree apprenticeships (see: https://www.strath.ac.uk/professionalservices/educationenhancement/). We work in partnership with the Student Experience Directorate on all student-related matters. You will provide line management to the Heads of Service and with them, lead the implementation of Directorate plans, which underpin delivery across the teams, with a focus on ensuring a student-centred approach to the enhancement of education strategy, policy and practice for a diverse student population.
A key aspect of the role is a requirement to work at the interface between academic processes and the delivery of professional services to support effective learning, teaching, assessment and postgraduate student research.
