Do you have significant teaching experience in a STEM subject, with experience of delivering high quality student education? Are you able to lead a team to create a first-class student experience? Do you want to be part of a multi-disciplinary team committed to promoting opportunities and support for students from diverse backgrounds?

As Programme Manager you will exercise strategic leadership and management of the development and delivery of science foundation years in the Lifelong Learning Centre. The science foundation year programmes provide students with a stimulating and supportive environment in which to acquire knowledge and skills for progression to a range of science degrees across the University.  They reflect a strong emphasis on widening participation, both for adult and younger students, and also make provision for those who wish to pursue a science degree but lack prerequisite subjects at A level.

You will play an important role in the strategic direction and operational management of the programmes and provide leadership to the science team. Our current foundation years are under review and we are looking for someone to manage the next stage of developments. In addition you will take the lead in partnership working both within the University and externally. This will involve working with faculties and schools to optimise the effectiveness of the science foundation years as tools for widening participation and building relationships with external partners to represent this area of work.
