The University of Lincoln is now the academic partner in a consortium of companies engaged in delivering ‘Project Selborne’, a large, multidisciplinary training and educational service to the Royal Navy in a partnership expected to last more than a decade. The Naval Service describes the vision for Project Selborne as: ‘A maritime training system that prepares the Royal Navy’s people, units, platforms and formations to deliver successfully the full spectrum of maritime operations.’ 

Project Selborne is a wide-scale, 12-year transformation of the Royal Navy’s Training System and includes systems, equipment, personnel and qualifications. Selborne is integral to the delivery of the Ministry of Defence’s Maritime Training Strategy, with the following broad objectives:

  1. the adoption of innovative approaches to improve performance 
  2. the insertion of new technology and techniques 
  3. the utilisation of industry-leading methods and media 

The University of Lincoln will deliver several academic programmes in partnership with Capita Plc, as part of the wider ‘Fisher Training’ consortium of partners. In addition to delivery, The University of Lincoln is fully accountable for quality assurance, accreditation and validation of these courses. Some courses will be directly delivered, whilst others will be validated and managed through link tutors. An academic staff team will be situated at BRNC Dartmouth.

This is an exciting opportunity, for the post-holder will play a strategic role in leading the successful implementation and delivery of Project Selborne, a multi-million pound contract, on behalf of the University of Lincoln. Full details of the role can be viewed on the job description and person specification.
