MOULTON COLLEGE MANAGEMENT STRUCTURE 2009/2010 1.0 INTRODUCTION Moulton College is an independent legal entity operating on business principles. Significant emphasis is placed upon the generation of income from commercial sources, and the College seeks to work closely with a wide range of businesses, industry, and other organisations to deliver education and training. Strategies promoted through the LSC are directed at reducing the skills gap faced by the UK, and towards increasing participation rates in high quality post-compulsory education in a cost-effective manner. More recently a change of emphasis has occurred and greater emphasis is now placed upon the end qualifications gained by students, rather than the total educational experience on offer. These demands upon the College's management and staff are additional to the more traditional role of providing quality education and training for the landbased, furniture and construction industries. In order to respond to these and new challenges, the College requires a flexible and adaptable structure that enables it to respond rapidly and effectively to both challenges and threats, whilst maintaining quality efficiently handling the day-to-day management of a complex business. 2.0 CURRENT STRUCTURE The structure is intended to be flexible and capable of responding to the changing environment in which the College operates. It is designed specifically to cater for the demands that the College faces as a specialist independent institution, whilst bearing in mind the financial restraints faced by all relatively small Colleges. 2.1 2.1.1 2.1.2 2.1.3 2.1.4 2.1.5 SPECIFIC FEATURES OF THE STRUCTURE A Senior Management Team (SMT) which manages the College in a corporate manner. One member of the SMT takes specific responsibility for each key operational area. Each senior manager also fulfils a strategic cross-college role. The SMT represents all operational areas of the College, but remains small enough to carry out the management function effectively. The SMT is responsible for reviewing current practices and for planning and creating new strategies and policies for the future. Harmonisation of the academic and commercial activity of the College to minimise possible conflict.

Individual lecturers are appointed as Course Managers on an annual basis and receive a separate Job Specification for that aspect of their work. Where the enrolment to individual courses is very large, a Year Tutor has been appointed to assist in the administration of the programme. Jon Phillips John Collins
