The Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience is seeking an experienced and highly competent manager to lead professional services in the Centre for Education Development and Research (CEDAR). This role will report to the Associate Director, Education, and work closely with the Dean of Education and other key stakeholders, providing executive support and leading on the preparation, implementation, and the evaluation of centre and faculty wide projects and initiatives across teams and departments (in line with the faculty priorities).
CEDAR is a newly developed Centre for the IoPPN, created to enhance education practice across the Faculty’s programmes through supporting the development of good practice and pedagogy relevant to the Faculty’s disciplinary areas, so improving the student experience and learning outcomes.
The Centre Manager will liaise with colleagues in the Education Support Team (EST) who provide the administrative support for IoPPN programmes including: timetabling, delivery, assessment, quality assurance and the management of placements. However, a background in programme management in education is not required to be successful in this post.
The CEDAR Manager will be responsible for the financial management and staff resourcing of teams under the CEDAR umbrella, including Distance Learning, Technological Enhanced Learning and Curriculum and Digital Innovation.
The post holder will work closely with the Dean of Education to review and develop the Centre’s strategy to support academic and teaching staff in the development of curriculum, delivery, and assessment to maximise student engagement and learning across the faculty. A key priority is to increase the Faculty’s pedagogical research relevant to its education programmes, with the ambition of becoming a nationally- and internationally recognised hub of education excellence, providing an environment for ongoing professional development and innovation in teaching.
The post holder is responsible for monitoring progress against key performance indicators, financial planning and reporting, leading formal audits of the Centre and other formal submissions. The post holder will instigate and strengthen Centre interactions with colleagues across the Faculty and university, and with external partners.
Successful candidates are expected to have management experience, have strong administrative and numeracy skills, and have experience of developing and delivering a strategy. Candidates should have experience of leading initiatives that have strategic importance in a complex organisation.
This post will be offered on a full-time, indefinite contract.
