About Us - Welcome

Dear Colleague,

Many thanks for your interest in the role of Director of MIS and Exams with us here at MidKent College.

We are a successful and ambitious College and in this key leadership position, you will have the opportunity to make a significant contribution to our ongoing development and success.

Our mission and purpose is to provide high-quality, technical education and training, to drive the ambitions and prosperity of the communities of Medway, Maidstone and the surrounding areas, working in partnership to ensure our students have the skills and qualifications for the changing world of work. We have a clear strategic priority of being the first choice locally for high-quality, technical education and training and we know that we cannot achieve our aims without excellent MIS and exams functions.

This experience may have been gained in either a further education college or a training provider with a broad and significant offer across different funding streams. You may already be working at Director level and looking for a change or you may be an aspiring Director, ready to take the next stage on your career journey.

Whatever your starting point, we will provide you with the support and development needed to be a great success and asset to the College. If you are looking to move into the area, we may be able to provide assistance with your relocation and support with accommodation.
