Dean of Learning and Teaching
St. Mary’s University, Twickenham
Salary: To be negotiated 

St Mary's University is a friendly, inclusive and intellectually rigorous learning community, which seeks to empower all its students to lead flourishing lives both at St Mary's, as well as in their careers and beyond. Situated in the leafy borough of Richmond-upon-Thames in London, the University has a long and distinguished history stretching back to 1850, wedded to a modern outlook focused on the excellence in its educational offering. 

St. Mary’s achieved Silver in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), published in June of this year with the TEF Panel judging that St Mary’s delivers high-quality teaching, learning and outcomes for its students. It also found that the University consistently exceeds rigorous national quality requirements for UK higher education. Built on a strong staff to student ratio, a team of experienced and respected academics and an outstanding track record of student satisfaction, St Mary’s is keen to further this reputation in teaching excellence.

To that end, St Mary’s is now looking to hire a Dean of Learning and Teaching to help drive the University to gold standard. The new Dean of Learning and Teaching will be responsible for the development and the successful implementation of a University strategy in this area, utilising the very best of the University’s initiatives to date, while bringing best practice and new approaches from the Higher Education sector. Reporting to the PVC of Academic Strategy, the Dean will work closely with the whole University leadership team to ensure the University has the best possible standards, frameworks, approaches, tools and culture to deliver the highest standard of teaching excellence to its students.

The successful candidate will have a track record of leadership in teaching and learning excellence and will likely be a Principal Fellow of the HEA. They will be able to demonstrate a track record of strategic vision and successful delivery in new and relevant initiatives that will most likely have had wide application across departments, schools or faculties. As a key member of the wider University leadership, they will bring a collaborative and driven approach to working with all stakeholder groups.
