Job Description

We are expanding our curriculum team and have two full time Principal Curriculum Lead (PCL) posts focused on year 1 of the Frontline programme (one post is an internal secondment opportunity). Both post holders will play a vital role in this pioneering organisation by bringing their practice and management wisdom, theoretical rigour and clear planning skills to the curriculum development and delivery. They will work to the Head of Curriculum and together (with the Principal Curriculum Lead for Year 2) lead the curriculum team, creating a strong team ethos and ensuring the team feel aligned to the vision for the programme.
The successful candidate will have a clear vision of what constitutes outstanding social
work practice, leadership and management.

This is a unique opportunity to join the team of a pioneering organisation that develops social workers and leaders to transform the lives of vulnerable children and families. The position offers the opportunity to influence and shape curriculum design, practice approaches and teaching methods.
Principal Curriculum Leads hold accountability for the design and dissemination of all Frontline programme content and teaching, ensuring the curriculum is cohesive, innovative, relevant to practice and evidence informed and that a suite of tutor materials enables confident and consistent delivery of the content across regions. Post holders will ensure interdependencies (such as professional and academic standards, regulatory requirements, quality assurance and feedback processes, teaching timetables) are carefully considered and the appropriate planning and communication mechanisms are in place to effectively deliver on these.
