|Institution||University of Bristol, Centre for Academic Language and Development|
|Job Type||Full time, open ended|
The Centre for Academic Language and Development at the University of Bristol is growing rapidly. As our teaching team expands, this creates greater need for experienced line managers to join our co-ordination team (currently 10 people including EAP, STEM and Social Sciences).
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. Each EAP co-ordinator has a specific focus for 3-5 years. As part of our desire to ensure robust and coherent assessment across our programmes, we are currently seeking to appoint an EAP Co-ordinator with special responsibilities for assessment. In line with the key responsibilities in the job description (attached), in the first instance you will:
-co-ordinate of a small team of course leaders (2 or 3) on the IFP Arts and Humanities Pathway;
-line manage a small number of teaching colleagues (4 or 5);
-teach across a range of the Centre’s provision (including associated tariff for preparation and feedback) for around 360 hours (25-30% of total workload allocation);
With a specialty in assessment you will:
-develop assessment literacy across the Centre (not only with EAP tutors);
-project manage EAP assessment development.
You will be qualified at Masters level and have sufficient experience in educational assessment and project management to persuade our team of tutors to follow you. You will be surrounded by extremely able colleagues and will work with a supportive management team. However this is a busy and varied role, 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. You will be working towards a claim for a BALEAP TEAP Senior fellowship.
We aspire to be a cutting-edge centre that works with all individuals to develop their communication in academic contexts. To do this we work in line with 6 principles: development, reflexivity, transparency, autonomy, collaboration and transferability. 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.
