|Institution||Centre for English Language and Foundation Studies, University of Bristol|
|Job Type||Full time|
CELFS is an ambitious Centre within the University of Bristol with three growing core areas:
1) International Foundation Programme (IFP)
2) Pre-sessional EAP provision (PS)
3) Academic Language and Literacy Provision (ALL)
The advertised role relates to coordination across the range of CELFS programmes although it is likely to be initially working alongside the current co-ordinator on the Academic Language and Literacy programme. As the Centre evolves with the demands of UK Higher Education, the co-ordination role is unlikely to stay exactly the same, hence an interest in all aspects of the Centre’s provision (and an awareness of this potential) is important.
As a start, you will need to be a good tutor, confident enough that you think you can teach virtually all levels and all variants of EAP / Academic Literacy, and extremely comfortable in the creation of material, both at an individual level but also motivating and guiding others. It’s also a given that you’re qualified and have sufficient experience to persuade our team of tutors to follow you. We will also expect you to have views on where you want a future Centre to ‘be’, and some ideas on how you think we’ll get ‘there’.
You will be surrounded by extremely able colleagues and work with what you’ll hopefully see as a supportive management team. Saying that, it’s likely you will think there’s too much to do, so it’s key that you know from the start that an ability to juggle workload at the same time as helping tutors do the same is vital. We’re broadly happy with the direction the Centre is moving, but each person in a new role needs to add something to the mix, and that’s one of the things we’ll be looking for.
As a Centre, we adhere to the principles of collaboration, development, reflexivity, autonomy, transparency and transferability at all levels of our operation. If you feel that these principles are a good fit for your own, then we look forward to receiving an application from you detailing how you can contribute to the Centre’s success. In turn, we will work with you to further your development as an EAP practitioner.
