You will provide a central point of management across four programmes running an ongoing programme of production and updating through liaison with Academics and in direct response to student and Associate Tutor feedback. A key part of the role involves the development of innovative learning materials and experiences for distance learning students, with an emphasis on e-learning. You will manage a team of Associate Tutors, organise and run Summer and Winter Schools and work with the School to maintain the production of high quality learning materials and a high quality learning experience. You will work with internal and external stakeholders to develop and grow international markets and support the School in meeting its recruitment targets. Linked to this, you will work with the Deputy Head of School and School Manager to enhance the cost efficiency of the distance learning programmes.
