Director of Social and Cultural Curriculum
Closing Date: 8th August 2021
The Director of Social and Cultural Curriculum is a key strategic role, overlaying and interleaving the implementation of a research informed 'hidden curriculum' that is unique to the City of Liverpool College and our learners. The role will provide expertise in curriculum design and implementation that develops social and cultural capital, including digital skills, and therefore turns disadvantage to advantage by recognising the diverse nature of our cohort. The role will strategically tailor our approach to the needs of our learners through targeted programmes of support and adaptation of pedagogy to different types of learners across the College by age, vocation, background or need. This will lead to the development and delivery of 'The Liverpool Way' into every aspect of the curriculum and learning space, removing barriers to engagement and learning through targeted, insight-based interventions and wrap around schemes of support. The post will draw upon Liverpool's unique economic, cultural and social assets to bolster our curriculum and the student experience. The role will also be a significant strategic lead in building upon the lessons learnt from the 'pandemic years' to take the best parts of a blended learning approach to support catch up learning, reinforcement and the stretch and challenge of all learners.
The Director of Social and Cultural Curriculum will be a supportive member of the Strategic Leadership Team which drives a culture of high performance and aspiration across all areas of the College. The post-holder will, from time to time, deputise for the Vice Principal Curriculum Development and Innovation, and directly support other College Directors, Heads of Faculty, and the Deans of Academic Studies and Higher Education in delivering an outstanding student experience for all students.
