About the role:

We are looking for a dynamic professional with excellent leadership and management skills to run the newly established School of Counselling and Mental Health. This is a management role within CCCG. The role has emerged as a result of growth in our Counselling provision and our ambition to develop a suite of courses that will provide Londoners with the skills to work effectively with those who may be experiencing poor mental health.

Our goal is to have courses at all 11 CCCG sites, including at Westminster Kingsway College, City and Islington College and the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London. We have courses running currently from five sites, so there is a good base on which to build.

About You:

You will be degree educated or equivalent, have qualified teacher status and be able to evidence personal commitment to continued professional development and training.

You will have extensive experience of quality processes and curriculum development as well as significant and current industry expertise, ideally highly qualified in counselling and/or mental health and have the ability to enable staff to deliver consistently good or better teaching, learning and assessment.

You will be an effective team player who is able to work with and lead teams, motivate staff, provide training where necessary and carry out appraisals. You should be inspirational to students and be able to demonstrate how you effectively manage student behaviour.

You will have a proven track record of developing teams to plan and deliver an excellent learning experience. Successful management experience of curriculum teams is essential and evidence of having led on change/curriculum innovation, especially in relation to vocational provision is a must. The opportunity to work flexibly can be agreed.

About CCCG:
CCCG is the first choice Further Education College for thousands of young people and adults across London. It achieves excellent academic results year on year for its students and creates pathways to careers for people of all ages.
