About the job

This position reports to the Curriculum Implementation Manager and is responsible for the collation and implementation of curriculum data to ensure smooth functioning of downstream student transaction processes. This important role is based in the teaching areas to ensure an effective interface between academic and teaching staff and Student Administration.

It is important that this position builds strong working relationships with relevant staff in the PVC (Education & Quality) group to ensure that all curriculum related data (including study plans, admission conditions, exemptions, timetabling, assessments, marketing, fees, requisites) are complete and accurate, thus enabling efficient down-stream processing of student transactions.

The incumbent will be a member of the relevant Academic Committee in the teaching area (e.g. Faculty Advisory Committee) and will be required to advise the committee regarding course development, planning and delivery as it affects student administration processes, timing and curriculum data requirements. This advisory role is critical to ensure system and process efficiencies are achieved.

  • A degree with substantial relevant experience or an equivalent combination of relevant experience and/or education/training.
