Are you an experienced FE manager, looking for an exciting development opportunity within the sector?  You are likely to have several years’ experience in FE middle management (or senior management in a smaller organisation) and a sound grasp of FE funding methodologies.  More than anything, you will be a social entrepreneur – motivated by social values to make things better for learners and communities while harnessing resources to widen opportunities for local people to learn and progress.  If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you.

CLIP is a social enterprise which strives to widen participation in learning for people living in rural, coastal and peripheral communities.  We have community learning centres in Gainsborough, Market Rasen and Mablethorpe in Lincolnshire – close to both the Lincolnshire Wolds as well as a beautiful coastline.  We run Study Programmes for 16-18s, AEB and Community Learning (directly-funded and sub-contracted), programmes for job-seekers and lead on the regional ESF NEET contract for 15-24s.

The CEO will ensure the flexible, sustainable and effective delivery of a high quality learning provision that actively meets the changing needs and expectations of our communities.  They must thus have the flexibility to lead a dynamic team through an exciting period of opportunity in the post-covid landscape.
