As our new Deputy Head of Academic Governance and Quality (Educational Partnerships), you’ll play a pivotal role in redefining the university’s approach to partnership management.

Your role will be central in ensuring partners feel supported, informed and well placed to meet their compliance objectives. You’ll also make connections across University teams to ensure continual enhancements to teaching and learning and the student experience at partner providers.

This is an exciting time to be joining a growing team with an expanded remit for shaping the University’s approach to partnership management. You will drive forward an effective approach to partner meetings, visits, and review activity, take ownership of the operation of core quality assurance processes for programme approval, change, review and assessment, and lead on academic risk management for partnerships.

About you

You will be an experienced higher education professional who enjoys driving change and improvement with diverse groups of stakeholders. You will have a thorough understanding of the higher education regulatory environment and the requirements of the Office for Students, and be able to demonstrate a commitment to maintaining your external network and expertise in quality assurance.

You'll work creatively with your team and others to solve problems, shape strategy and manage change. You’ll be an excellent communicator, adapting your style and focus accordingly with different partners and be confident in providing and explaining complex concepts clearly.
