It's not every day you get chance to implement real change but as an Associate Head of School at Coventry University this is your moment to do just that. This is an exciting opportunity for a talented and ambitious individual to continue developing academically by leading a key activity at the university while acquiring further managerial skills along the way.

As Associate Head, you will lead the development of Art and Design courses and innovative provision across the School; ensuring portfolio objectives are met effectively. With guidance, you will apply the Faculty’s portfolio review strategy throughout the School’s activities - working closely with colleagues to ensure that courses meet quality standards. You will work pro-actively with the University’s planning, recruitment and Marketing teams to identify new course opportunities, and with external bodies to ensure that provision secures appropriate creative industry input and endorsement. This position will require you to represent the School internally, externally and internationally and to ensure best QA practice across the University.

Coventry University provides opportunities for both career and personal development in the form of a tailored development programme. In addition, our comprehensive benefits package includes a generous holiday allowance and pension, as well as flexible working options.
