Job Description

Director of Sport and Co-Curriculum

Description

At Pearson, we’re committed to a world that’s always learning and to our talented team who makes it all possible. From bringing lectures vividly to life to turning textbooks into laptop lessons, we are always re-examining the way people learn best, whether it’s one child in our own backyard or an education community across the globe. We are bold thinkers and standout innovators who motivate each other to explore new frontiers in an environment that supports and inspires us to always be better. By pushing the boundaries of technology — and each other to surpass these boundaries — we create seeds of learning that become the catalyst for the world’s innovations, personal and global, large and small.

The College is seeking to appoint a well-qualified, experienced and dynamic individual to join the Extended Leadership Team at our purpose-built residential Sixth Form College near Loughborough from September 2019.

The successful applicant will take responsibility for developing and enhancing our important, and highly-regarded, sports and co-curricular programme. You will play a key part in helping to develop the College’s future strategy in this and other areas. Applicants should be suitably qualified and experienced dynamic sports coaches, able to coach College sport to a high level, and have taught PE to 16-18 year old students. You will be expected to contribute significantly to the delivery of PE within the curriculum timetable, and also to the sport, activities and the wider personal development of students.

In leading these areas you will have responsibility for the development of up to 360 male and female students who have been preselected to join the armed forces or the MOD civil service. You will also have proven experience in pastoral matters, excellent leadership and people-management skills. Knowledge of boarding schools and an understanding of the military aspects of Welbeck College will be an advantage. For the right applicant there might be the potential for an additional resident pastoral role within a boarding house.

This is an exciting opportunity and we are keen to attract applicants seeking their first senior leadership role, whose experience might not, as yet, cover all aspects of the role. It would also suit someone who is keen to develop the depth of experience in preparation for deputy headship.

Pearson is an equal opportunities employer. We do not discriminate against employees or job applicants and select the best person for each job based on relevant skills and experience.

We are also committed to building an accurate picture of the make-up of the workforce and encouraging equality and diversity.

The information you provide will stay confidential, and be stored securely. It will not be seen by those involved in making decisions as part of the recruitment process.
