Exeter College is currently planning to extend its existing Construction Centre next year to accommodate growth and to prepare for the delivery of T-Levels. In addition, the college plans to develop and build a new construction centre over the next 3 to 5 years, so the new Head of Faculty will be absolutely key to these endeavours.

We have high expectations of our students and staff and each year their combined efforts result in excellent examination grades, outstanding learner achievement rates and superb music, arts, sports and community achievements. We welcome apprentices and students of all ages and abilities.

The successful candidate will embrace the college’s vision of becoming exceptional and will lead the evolution of our strong and successful Construction Faculty to realise this vision.

The Faculty deliver craft, services and professional programmes, ranging from Level 1 to Level 4 and also delivers a growing range of apprenticeships, in addition the Faculty has been selected as an early adopter for T-Levels, starting in September 2020.
