Director of Employer Engagement & Apprenticeships

Following its Area Based Review and a public consultation, Telford College of Arts and Technology (TCAT) and New College Telford (NCT) are proposed to officially merge on 1 August 2017 and be rebranded as Telford College.

The merger of the two colleges will create a single college offering one of the widest choices of academic, professional and technical education and training opportunities in Shropshire, providing significant benefits to students, employers and the local communities.

It is an exciting time to be joining the senior team at Telford College. Following the appointment of the new Principal and CEO we have created an impactful new structure of Senior Leadership Posts to develop an outstanding college.

We are seeking an inspirational and proactive leader who will develop employer focussed and work-based learning provision across the college and establish us as the first choice provider within the region. Working closely with strategic partners and leading on proactive business development, you will be responsible for maximising growth opportunities, increasing commercial income and growing our market share in apprenticeships.

The successful candidate will have a talent for developing new business opportunities and nurturing strategic partnerships with a range of external stakeholders. Key to this role will be the ability to develop and implement holistic strategies, motivate a proactive and progressive team, and ultimately grow the college’s income generation. An aspiring leader, you will demonstrate a track record of business development and partnership working, ideally within an education and skills provider.

This is a superb opportunity to impact on new business development within a growth area known for its high level of current and future business opportunities.
