Plumpton College has a long standing forward thinking reputation for its Agriculture curriculum provision alongside a highly successful commercial farm. We are now seeking to recruit a Programme Manager to lead our Level 3 Further Education provision.  You will, with the support of the Curriculum Manager, coordinate the students' experience in all aspects of their programme to ensure the best possible outcomes are secured as well as inspiring our students to be well motivated to make a significant contribution to future study and employment in their chosen career within Agriculture.
