The ELC is currently looking for suitably qualified EAP teachers to deliver its 6-week summer pre-sessional course to predominantly postgraduate students holding offers for programmes across the three faculties of Humanities & Social Science, Science & Engineering, and Health & Life Sciences at its Liverpool campus.

Teachers can expect to have 18 hours of contact time per week (including tutorials) and up to 1.5 hours of cover per week (as required). All materials are provided.
