This role is based in UAL Awarding Body. Its purpose is to support the design and development of new qualifications, and the review of existing qualifications, primarily for 14-19 year olds in fulltime education.

The role requires an outcome / delivery focused individual who can work effectively with colleagues from across the awarding body as well as academic staff from our partner colleges. The role requires a commitment to excellent customer service and professionalism when dealing with both external and internal stakeholders.

UAL Awarding Body, a department within the University, believes in transformative education. We design and award creative qualifications for students in Further Education (FE) that empower and inspire educators to help students reach their potential.

UAL Awarding Body is regulated by Ofqual, CCEA and Qualifications Wales. We currently offer qualifications in art and design, fashion, creative media, music and performing and production arts at levels 1 to 4. We are also the UK’s leading provider of the Diploma in Art & Design - Foundation Studies. Our qualifications have high retention and achievement rates because they are flexible, responsive and relevant to industry needs, and facilitate student progression.

The role requires an outcome / delivery focused individual who can work effectively with colleagues from across the awarding body as well as academic staff from our partner colleges. The role requires a commitment to excellent customer service and professionalism when dealing with both external and internal stakeholders.

 

Educated to degree or an equivalent professional qualification, e.g. Project Management, you will commit to your own development through effective use of processes such as UAL’s excellent appraisal scheme and staff development opportunities. Ideally, you will have knowledge of/or the capacity to develop knowledge of Further Education (FE) qualifications and regulatory bodies, such as Ofqual.

 

You will certainly be an effective communicator, highly organised and a skilled problem solver. Capable of both working independently and collaboratively as part of a team, you will be able to supervise and motivate individuals, setting clear objectives to manage performance.

At UAL, everyone's identity matters. We are committed to creating a supportive and inclusive environment for all our diverse students, staff, and the creative and cultural sector partners with whom we engage. We aim to take every opportunity to progress equality and diversity, and celebrate the enrichment this brings to our community.
