Eastleigh College is a leading technical and professional college in the UK with an ambitious vision for the College’s future. Whether for adult, school leaver or apprentice, our teaching, learning and assessment is delivered by well qualified sector specialists supported by learner and business support colleagues who are experts in their field. Our two campuses provide the same industry standard learning environment that learners can expect to find in the workplace and our reputation is such that the College has extensive industry partnerships across the South Hampshire and Solent region with businesses who are dependent on us for their ongoing training, updating, certification and licensing needs. We work with over 1,000 different employers in the region and have strategic partnerships with the University of Portsmouth and University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust. 

Following the planned retirement of members of the College’s SMT and having appointed a new Chief Executive and Principal in 2019 the Eastleigh College board are looking to appoint a proven leader to join our senior management team in the role of Deputy Principal. This new role will attract a talented, well informed curriculum expert with experience and a proven track record of leading and improving high quality provision. Talent development is a key expectation of all Eastleigh senior managers and through our commitment to coaching it is our ambition that our Deputy Principal will further enhance our capacity to inspire colleagues and learners to continuously improve and realise their potential. Realising potential is also an absolute commitment for our new Deputy Principal whose professional development and growth will be extensive. As such this opportunity is ideally suited for those considering promotion to Chief Executive and Principal in the future.

Our CEO and board have designed the Deputy post to be competitively remunerated with favourable terms and conditions so as to attract candidates of the highest calibre from within or beyond the FE sector. It is anticipated that the full role will commence in July 2021 but with the ideal candidate commencing employment as soon as they are able and working on transitional projects until this time.
