Director of the Lifelong Learning Centre

Are you able to provide effective leadership and to find imaginative ways to maintain and develop the University’s reputation for excellence in student education?

The Lifelong Learning Centre (LLC) plays a vital strategic role in delivering the commitment of the University of Leeds to inclusion and widening participation. This is both about our sector-leading work with mature learners and in the provision of intensive foundation years for students of all ages from disadvantaged backgrounds. The Centre's approach is to be proactive across the whole student lifecycle. It offers sustained outreach and preparatory provision, bespoke programmes, including professionally-related degrees and apprenticeships, and developmental support at all stages to enable students to realise their potential.

The LLC is both an academic school and central service, combining delivery of undergraduate degrees and progression pathways (c650 total registrations p.a.) with responsibility for the support of mature undergraduates across the University. It benefits from a very strong team culture, with shared commitment to delivering an exceptional experience for students through effective partnerships between academic, student support and administrative colleagues. There is also clear recognition that lifelong learning is a dynamic area in which continuous improvement and creative engagement with new circumstances are vital for ongoing success. For further information about the LLC please see: www.llc.leeds.ac.uk.

With the current Director of the LLC retiring in summer 2019, the University is looking to appoint a successor who can build on established excellence and take the LLC forward to address the opportunities and challenges of the future. You will have: 

  • strong strategic capabilities grounded in vigorous and informed commitment to widening participation and mature learners;

  • outstanding leadership qualities, creativity, and the ability to work at senior levels including with employers and other external organisations.
