Why choose us? 

University of the Arts London is a vibrant world centre for innovation, drawing together six Colleges with international reputations in art, design, fashion, communication and performing arts.

Central Saint Martins is a world-leading centre for arts and design education.  Its reputation stems from the creative energy of its staff and students and the stellar achievements of its graduates nationally and internationally.  The nine programmes at CSM explore the boundaries of their discipline.  Students and staff are continually alert to new ideas, and are curious and restless in developing beyond the expected norms of their subject, so emerging work is at the forefront of its area.  CSM sits at the heart of London’s creative scene, and of one of Europe’s most dynamic new culture and innovation quarters at King’s Cross, making the college increasingly important to London’s cultural life, and indicative of our general desire to open up CSM to as broad an audience as possible.

The role

The Associate Dean of Academic Development & Enhancement works with the Dean of Development and Quality, the Associate Deans of Learning, Teaching & Enhancement and Student Experience & Enhancement, the College Quality Manager and the College Director of International Development to support the College in a culture of continuous development.

Working with the College’s senior management team, with programme teams and with students as co-creators, you will have strategic oversight of our work in ensuring that our world leading courses are current, relevant and valued by students, the disciplines and wider society.  With a view of the broader HE landscape, you will guide new course development through the definition of new areas of provision and new modes of delivery.

Knowledge exchange is a highly valued aspect of the College’s academic life and you will play a key role in interpreting evolving policy in this area, coordinating strategy and supporting its implementation, particularly with regard to academic development.

Your profile

Fluent in the processes and practices of course development, you will act as a role model and standard setter, whilst providing support to colleagues to enable their development in this area of our work. A confident communicator you will have the interpersonal skills to enable colleagues to challenge themselves productively, exploring subject areas and their interrelationship so as to create an innovative curriculum and inspiring approaches to learning. You will be an energetic advocate for inclusivity and a champion for creating equality of opportunity, irrespective of gender, race or wealth.

In return, University of the Arts London offers generous leave, an attractive pension and a commitment to your continuing personal development and training in an environment that encourages excellence, creativity and diversity. Relocation assistance is available.
