The HEA is a national body for enhancing learning and teaching in higher education in the UK. We work with institutions across the higher education system to help bring about change in learning and teaching to improve the outcomes for students. We do this by recognising and rewarding excellent teaching, bringing together people and resources to share best practice and by helping influence, shape and implement policy.
The HEA supports staff in higher education throughout their career from those who are new to teaching through to senior management. We offer services in 28 disciplines throughout the UK and have offices in England, Wales and Scotland. Through our partnership management team we work directly with institutions to understand individual circumstances and priorities and bring together resources to meet them.
The post holder will exercise academic leadership in close collaboration with individuals and teams within HE working in the relevant area, forging, developing and supporting specific and defined relationships and activities with institutions and other relevant organisations to achieve the Academy's strategic aims and objectives. Managing performance in the delivery of the service will be a key part of the role.
You will be able to demonstrate a track record of operating in a highly vibrant and busy environment, coming from a background of teaching and learning. You will also show how you would provide creative and committed academic leadership, and possess excellent relationship building skills.
You will have exceptional interpersonal skills and a strong background in delivering substantial and significant teaching to the HE sector. Knowledge of UK higher education and the sector's current issues, particularly in quality enhancement would be an advantage.
