Our work safeguards the value of qualifications for students and learners, and protects and promotes the reputation of higher education.

Examples include work to promote our competence-based education materials or delivering our Assessment Festival.

You should have experience of designing and leading degree provision and/or training programmes for a higher education audience. We would like to see experience of supporting the enhancement of policy and practices in your organisation with clear potential to extend that to higher education sector level. 

It's important that you have excellent communication skills including the ability to create imaginative, useful materials for busy academic staff and present them to a variety of audiences. You may have experience of constructing resources for audiences to engage in digital, film and/or web formats. You will have a keen interest in quality assurance and enhancement and a good knowledge of sector-wide reference points including the UK Quality Code and its associated advice and guidance.
