You will have experience of course administration, pedagogic innovation, assessment processes and procedures.  You will bring excellent organisational and communication skills to the Year Leader role.

The course has a broad approach to Product and Furniture design education, and you will be expected to have experience of working in interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary practices and knowledge of subject-related design software. We are interested in candidates with subject expertise and a specialism in one or more of the following: inclusive and social design, circular design, digital practices / emerging technologies, design for health and wellbeing or public engagement. This course has a track record of delivering dynamic Knowledge Exchange and live projects with diverse partners. In this role, you will lead and contribute to new developments in this area.
