Job Details

The University of Northampton is seeking to appoint a number of experienced EAP teachers to contribute to the delivery of its summer 2019 Pre-Sessional English programme. Applicants must have a first degree and a CELTA (or equivalent). A DELTA (or equivalent), TEAP qualification and/or a Master’s degree in a cognate subject (e.g. TESOL, Applied Linguistics) is highly desirable.

The Pre-sessional at the University of Northampton has been designed to reflect innovative practice in EAP teaching and assessment.

Teachers will be involved in all aspects of Pre-Sessional provision (including the planning and delivery of classes, student feedback and support) and will be expected to teach 20 hours per week and attend weekly staff meetings and development sessions. Teachers should be able to commit for the entire duration of the course.

Associate Lecturers are just as important to us as our students, and, as such all Associate Lecturers take part in a formal observation which aims to open up a dialogue about TEAP practice and development.

We currently have vacancies for the following courses:

PEP EAP 6-week course
29 July 2019 – 10 Sept 2019

Note: staff induction (paid separately) begins on 24 July 2019

We are looking to recruit individuals who share our passion for innovation, creativity and social impact and who will play a key role as we realise our ambition of transforming lives for the better and inspiring positive change.
