About Us - Welcome

November 2021

Dear Colleague

Thank you for showing the interest you have already in the key position of Principal and Chief Executive at Hull College.

After a period of instability, we are excited and optimistic about the future of Hull for our students, the communities we serve and our staff.

Our mission is to help young people and adults in Hull and the wider region realise their full potential, and we aim to create a vibrant, sustainable and inclusive college, reputation restored, effectively meeting the diverse needs of the young people and adults we serve.

This is a great time to be joining our college. We have just redeveloped our 2022 – 2025 strategic plan, the cornerstone to which is the seven “living” technical institutes and four “living” inclusive institutes focused on the skills employers need for the future and encouraging more young people and adults take up educational opportunities.

We are looking for an individual who has the drive, determination and vision to build on the foundations of the strategic plan, creating thriving technical institutes with the college recognised, in the future, as the first choice for technical and professional learning.

You will be joining a senior team who have quickly established a strong presence at the college and a collaborative, transparent approach.

The college has established good governance arrangements and, although I am an interim Chair, I have committed to remaining at the college until at least December 2022. The Board and the Executive work well together and Governors are not only proud of Hull College but take an active interest through their link activity roles. We have a clear vision for our estate and also how the college can work better and more effectively with other providers across the city.

Hull has a captivating charm, a thriving arts community, welcoming, genuine people and the regeneration, inward investment and city redevelopment will offer great opportunities for those living in and around the city.

There is much to do, and much to enjoy. I do not say this lightly, this is a great opportunity for someone to make a real difference. Hull is a vibrant city and the community of Hull deserves an excellent city college, which we intend to deliver.

We have retained FE Associates to support us with this crucial appointment.  Prior to submitting an application, interested parties are encouraged to arrange an initial conversation with our FE Associates lead consultant, by emailing Matt.Atkinson@fea.co.uk, to discuss the role and schedule a first-stage interview via Teams to take place before the closing date.

Your sincerely

Lesley Davies
Corporation Chair
