We are on a journey to “Be Extraordinary”


Wanted! A new Deputy Principal to lead the unique and exceptional Lincoln College Group


With around 11,000 students at 9 Further and Higher Education locations across the globe, with two campuses in the UK, and sponsorship of the local UTC we are no “ordinary FE College”.

With a reputation for strong education standards and superb relevance to local employers, the Lincoln College Group has every reason to be proud. However, rather than rest on our laurels we are looking to the future to appoint a Deputy Principal with a clear and ambitious vision to drive our learner’s experiences to even greater heights.

The Board is ambitious and open to new ideas. This can be demonstrated by our superb relevance and exciting “supra-study programme” model. The pinnacle of which will be the opening of the Air and Space Institute (ASI) close to our Newark campus in January 2024. As a group we are looking to appoint a Deputy Principal who can develop a shared vision and strategy to deliver sustainable growth, further expansion and diversification with a clear specialism in the field of Further and Higher Education. Our students “rave” about the experience they receive on programmes such as the Air and Defence College, Care College, Policing College and ASI with excellent working opportunities in our commercial outlets such as The Drill, Old Bakery and Aura Salon to name but a few.

As a large and complex education provider we would like to hear from exceptional individuals who excel in leadership with a proven record of successful outcomes in education and learning. We are looking for a Deputy Principal who embraces change and inspires others to follow; someone who can innovate and provide high-quality learning, assessment, and teaching to ensure we progress on our journey to “Be Extraordinary”.

The core themes of our “Purpose” are to be employer led, creating highly skilled and productive individuals, which we do through highly relevant and well-funded programmes. This is only possible due to our innovative business model based around international and commercial provision. We are proud that we provide many of our students with extraordinary opportunities that are not available in many other education settings.

This key leadership role will require an academic background and passion for education, with an energy that ensures over the next three years we improve Group provision, both in the UK and abroad. We need our next Deputy Principal to keep the Lincoln College Group a highly relevant, motivating, and inspiring place for all of our learners. You will be at the forefront of innovation, so that others call our education provision truly “Extraordinary”.

The successful candidate will have leadership experience that balances the right values and vision for education with educational outcomes that will lead the Group to further and greater success.
