Hadlow College, part of North Kent College, is a specialist land based college which offers a huge range of high quality courses to suit the needs of many different students. We have a proud heritage within the rural sector, with our history tracing back over 100 years.
We’ve seen significant growth in student numbers over the last few years, with new programme developments and an increasing commitment to working with local employers making a real contribution to our local communities.
Our aim is to make all our students, the most challenging and rewarding customers, feel welcome and secure within what is a fantastic learning environment as they gain the skills they require for a successful career. As a key member of our senior leadership team, your role as Assistant Principal is vital in making this aim a reality.
Reporting directly to the Vice Principal for Hadlow College, you’ll be responsible for all aspects of the delivery of a comprehensive curriculum offer, including Agriculture, Animal Management, Equine, Fisheries and Horticulture to name just a few, as well as taking the lead for the Higher Education provision. You’ll plan and manage the curriculum offer to ensure that all staff, students and the senior leadership team have access to relevant information when needed, so a mind for numbers is a must and you’ll be well versed in taking responsibility for budgets and deadlines.
You’ll be a self-starter and a natural communicator, with the ability to manage a team of professional staff, including Heads of Curriculum, to achieve the College objectives, targets and behaviours, as identified in the strategic plan.
Naturally, you’ll have experience in similar professional roles, bringing your experience and enthusiasm to this key position.
