Telford College
Deputy Principal Curriculum and Quality

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.

The college is in a challenging position, having received an inadequate Ofsted grade in May 2016.  However, under the guidance of a highly regarded interim Principal and with a newly appointed permanent Principal, we have started to make strides forward in our journey of recovery. We take pride in our successes, such as our strong employability work and enthusiastic student cohort, while focusing on our over-riding goal of securing the best possible future for the college.

Our new Deputy Principal will demonstrate an uncompromising commitment to raising standards and aspirations and improving learner outcomes. As the lead for curriculum standards and quality improvement, you will be responsible for implementing quality and performance improvement strategies which will ensure the college rapidly improves.

The successful candidate will be an outstanding leader and ambassador who sets high standards and is able to motivate staff at all levels to effect positive change. You will need to demonstrate a successful track record in leading curriculum and improving the quality of teaching, learning and success rates, along with a good understanding of performance data and funding.

This post provides a real opportunity to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of the college and making a key impact on our learners’ outcomes.  If this sounds like the type of challenge you can embrace then we would love to hear from you.
