Deputy Head of Skills

Waltham Forest Adult Learning Service

Waltham Forest Adult Learning Service is the local authority’s direct provider of adult education. Officially rated as “Good” following our OFSTED inspection in July 2016, we are on a journey to “Outstanding.”  We are going through an exciting phase of revisioning the service to support our drive to “Outstanding”. We would like to hear from forward thinking, innovative, experienced senior leaders with previous responsibility for whole service quality including Ofsted lead nominee experience, Community and Family learning initiatives, including the allocation and monitoring of community grants, leading the community learning strategy and the community learning Adult Learning Board sub-group.

In common with other members of the senior team, the postholder will share corporate responsibility for decisions affecting the Service and will play an important part in the wider leadership of a complex organisation.

This is an ideal role for an experienced senior manager who is passionate about learners, teaching, learning and assessment, and the difference that ACE makes to the lives of learners, communities, and the economy. You will have a background in further and/or adult community adult learning and passion for supporting learners furthest away from education and employment to gain the skills, knowledge, and confidence to fully engage.

If you are learner-focussed, passionate about making a difference through education and excited about being part of an ambitious team, then we are ready to welcome you!

Closing date: 27th January 2023
