Have you the leadership skills and experience to provide an outstanding educational experience for our students? The Governors at BCA are seeking to appoint a talented and exceptional leader with outstanding people skills who can appreciate the College’s unique inclusive culture and blend this with imaginative and innovative ideas to achieve the growth and educational excellence as set out in the College’s strategic objectives.
BCA grew by 5% in 2011/12 and expects to grow by a further 15% in the coming academic year. BCA was judged to be ‘Good’ at its OFSTED inspection in May 2011.
The College has a wide and diverse curriculum, enhancing its core land-based provision, offering both vocational and academic qualifications; from pre-entry to Higher Education. Students come mainly from across the Thames Valley but the College is attracting learners from further afield; its revenues come from a number of different sources and its campus with a mixture of modern and listed buildings complete with over 400 acres of grounds make it an ideal environment in which to work and learn.
The Principal will be provided with ‘Greenacres’, a 4 bedroom detached property as living on-site is an integral part of the post.
If your experience and ambition match our needs, we would like to hear from you.
