Newcastle & Stafford Colleges Group is financially one of the strongest of its kind in the country with very high success rates, amongst the top 10% nationally.

In November 2016 Newcastle-under-Lyme College merged with Stafford College to form the Newcastle & Stafford Colleges Group. The group is currently home to a population of over 4,600 full-time students and around 620 students on higher education programmes. We have over 2,000 part-time or adult learners and 2,000 apprentices where we work with over 800 individual employers.

This is an exciting new opportunity to lead on Science and Mathematics, building on the strength of our current provision at NULC and helping launch the new sixth form department in the brand new refurbished STEM centre on our Stafford site. The successful candidate will have responsibility for the curriculum area across both sites and combined responsibility for A-level Sciences and Maths, GCSE Science and vocational science courses, along with shared responsibility for existing HE science provision.

As a key member of the Academic & Creative Arts Management Team you will have scope to broaden your experience and in particular there will be opportunities for the further development of new programmes.

Your focus will be on three core areas: curriculum development, raising standards of teaching and learning and the leadership of staff. To be successful in this we believe you should have significant post-qualification teaching experience and a proven track record of motivating and leading people to achieve excellence. You should also have experience in, and be able to contribute to the teaching of one or more programme areas offered within the curriculum area.
