You will coordinate the delivery of a suite of local HE courses and modules in partnership with Telford College and Faculties and work with key University Corporate Service Departments such as Registry, External Relations and Directorate of Recruitment and Partnerships to ensure that smooth and seamless operations are maintained at all times. You will ensure that a co-ordinated Information, Advice and Guidance Service is offered to potential students and that this relates to the breadth of educational opportunities, career pathways and support for studying in HE.
Crucially you will be the public face of the University and the Centre and will work in conjunction with University Departments, Faculties and staff to promote the Centre’s activities locally through engagement and networking activities with stakeholders and key groups.
