You will be an experienced and inspiring leader, with a demonstrated background in sports education and curriculum development, with expertise in leading a cohesive team to ensure stated outcomes are delivered. You have experience developing and maintaining systems and processes that will facilitate the implementation and on-going development of the College’s Sport Strategy.
