Adult Community Learning Principal
Chelmsford. Essex
Up to £81,718 per annum

Developing lifelong learning to help our residents meet the challenges of a changing world.

Why join us
Essex County Council (ECC) has an ambitious agenda to improve the quality of life for all people in Essex. Through our Everyone’s Essex strategy, we’re addressing four key areas: the economy, the environment, supporting our children and families, and promoting health, care and wellbeing for all ages.

Our adult skills and employability agenda underpins our commitment to create a strong, inclusive and sustainable economy, to level up the places and cohorts across the county, and to make lifelong learning a reality for our residents.

Your role
Offering our residents the opportunity to gain the skills they need to get a job, progress at work, or re-train for a different career is a key element in our Everyone’s Essex strategy. As our Adult Community Learning (ACL) Principal, your work will be central to our levelling-up approach, and to encouraging lifelong learning. Specifically, you will develop and deliver a financially sustainable and high-quality academic and vocational education function, which meets the new demands of a changing world.

Working collaboratively with our Head of Skills and Employability, as well as external partners and stakeholders, you will ensure targeted delivery of adult education. You will also consider how ACL’s strategy and delivery models need to evolve in light of the wider economic circumstances and future government funding announcements. Developing innovative, commercial approaches to delivery will be key, as will maximising grants, funding schemes and income generation opportunities.

About you
You’ll be an inspirational leader with the ability to motivate large teams to deliver high-quality outcomes. You’re likely to have a teaching qualification in adult learning (or equivalent experience), allied to a background in the operational delivery of post-16 education programmes, including relevant statutory and regulatory quality frameworks. At the same time, you’ll have exposure to commercially challenging environments, and experience in building productive working relationships. You will be used to influencing and negotiating to lead and deliver major cultural change

Benefits
We’re proud to offer an excellent benefits package to all our employees, including a local government pension, flexible working arrangements, generous annual leave and a range of discounts and loans.

Apply and next steps
At Essex County Council, we seek the best talent from the widest pool of people - diversity is key to our success and we want to hear from every part of the community.

Closing date: 22 May 2022.

Essex County Council is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults and expects all employees and volunteers to share this commitment.
