  • Act as Secretary to School Accreditation and Validation Panel, related validation events and other school committees ensuring compliance with relevant regulations and guidelines.
  • Organise and deliver on activities in relation to external reporting, including accreditation submissions, external reporting and data returns.
  • Ensure effective communication with all key stakeholders, providing advice and guidance to colleagues within School to ensure consistency of practice and compliance.

  • Significant and recent experience of a busy administrative role in an office based environment.
  • Proven organisational skills, able to manage several projects and deliver confidently to deadlines.
  • Recent operational experience of using databases in an office environment, involving data input, extraction, checking and reporting.
