Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC), based in Twickenham, is one of London’s most successful.

Further Education colleges providing education and training to 16-18-year-olds and adults from.

Richmond, London and Surrey. Around 2,000 students and employers choose us because we offer a wide range of academic, apprenticeships and technical vocational qualifications.

Over the past few years, the College has strengthened its position in the London FE landscape through an ambitious strategic plan that has delivered improvements across all aspects of our work. We were rated good by Ofsted in 2017. 

We are currently in the process of developing one of the most impressive FE estates in London and our new £80m campus provides us with the opportunity to deliver an agenda which transforms how FE and skills are delivered. This investment in our estate typifies the level of ambition we have for our organisation and our students; we are forward thinking and future-focused and committed to delivering excellence in all that we do. This innovative state-of-the-art new development will open its doors to students in 2020 and also created exciting new job opportunities. 

Currently, we are recruiting for Heads of Schools in the following areas: 

  • Business & Business Enterprise 
  • Sport, Travel & Beauty
  • Performing Arts, Visual Arts & Media
  • Computing & Science

We are looking for inspirational leaders who will challenge, develop and motivate teams and individuals to achieve excellence in all aspects of College targets. Emphasis will be placed on leadership, operational management, business innovation and promotion of continuous improvements in educational and financial outcomes to ensure the student experience is of the highest quality.

It is expected from the post holders that they will have a contemporary and forward-thinking approach to curriculum design. Where appropriate, they will also manage and oversee the commercial aspects of the learning centres. 

If you are a leader who can inspire and motivate a team to attain good student outcomes and have a record of achieving consistently above national average outcomes levels within an FE setting then we would like to hear from you.

Richmond upon Thames College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We particularly welcome applications from under-represented groups including ethnicity, gender, transgender, age, disability, sexual orientation or religion.

Closing date: 2 June 2019
