We are looking for a Platform Leader for Strategy & Identity for the BA Graphic Communication Design course at Central Saint Martins. This is an opportunity to join a forward-thinking and outward-facing course team where pedagogic innovation, critical practice and explorative approaches to the possibilities of the discipline are valued.

Strategy & Identity is one of five Platforms that correspond to broad areas of graphic communication design practice; Time & Movement, Narrative & Voice, Strategy & Identity, Information & Systems and Experience & Environment. Students elect to move between Platforms and experience them as interrelated areas of study. The Platform Leader role involves working closely with other Platform Leaders and the wider team to deliver a holistic learning experience where cross-disciplinary relationships are facilitated and theory and practice are integrated.

The Platform Leader is responsible for the academic leadership, delivery and management of the Strategy & Identity Platform. This includes leading on curriculum development, teaching, providing pastoral and academic support, assessment and feedback.
