You will have a track record of effective academic leadership in curriculum development, experience of providing support and advice regarding the development of programmes and modules, a track record of contributing to the scholarship of learning and teaching, including publications and grant capture and a strong understanding of the support and development needs of staff who teach and support learning in UK HE. You will have leadership and influencing skills, an ability to effect change in pedagogic practice and to drive forward pedagogic projects, coaching and mentoring skills, scholarship, research and evaluation skills; excellent communication, interpersonal and teamwork skills. You will hold a PhD, PGCertHE, and Senior Fellow (or Principal Fellow) of the HEA or equivalent.
