The Association of Colleges is the national voice for colleges in England and exists to promote and support them. We are a not-for-profit membership organisation, representing the interests of our members and providing them with high-quality professional support services. This includes leading the development of sport and physical activity in 16+ education working closely with AoC Sport members and partners.
Our ambition is for every student in every college to have opportunities to build their self-esteem, confidence and broaden their experiences in college. We believe that sport and physical activity, along with other activities outside the curriculum, are essential components of college life, bringing significant advantages in terms of education, employment, health and wellbeing.
This is an exciting time to join AoC as our new Director of Sport and Student Experience, providing strategic leadership of our strategy and operational management in this area and supporting colleges to enable students to develop their skills for life and work.
We are seeking a values-driven leader to advocate and champion the benefits of sport and enrichment activities for all students in colleges. You will be able to demonstrate excellent interpersonal skills and an ability to build strong relationships with a wide range of stakeholders. Skilled at developing a dedicated and loyal team, you will have a natural ability to motivate others to ‘go the extra mile’ for our colleges and their students.
This is a unique and rewarding opportunity to enhance the profile of sport and other enrichment activities for all students in further education. If you would like to be part of an organisation committed to these aims, then we’d love to hear from you.
This role can be based at any of our AoC offices and will involve regular travel to London and at least fortnightly travel to Stoke-sub-Hamdon. Travel to other locations across the UK for meetings with members, staff and stakeholders will also be required based on business needs.
