The Faculty Education Directors play a key role in the faculty senior teams, leading in the areas of graduate/undergraduate affairs.  They report directly to their Dean and often stand in for the Dean as required. 

Each Faculty has at least one Faculty Education Director (which may be combined with other roles) with strategic responsibility for education provision and the student learning experience in undergraduate and taught postgraduate programmes within their Faculty and contributes in these areas at institutional level.

Please see the HR website for information on the process of appointing Education Directors.
