|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 (around 60), this creates greater need for experienced line managers to join our co-ordination team (soon to be 12). 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.
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. The successful candidate is likely to start their time with us working on the pre-sessional provision.
What will you be doing?
You will be working with a Deputy Director and fellow co-ordinator to continually improve the design and delivery of the pre-sessional provision, both online and on campus. You will be involved in recruitment of around 60 temporary pre-sessional teachers and the planning of every aspect of the operationalisation of the courses. You will take an active part in the training and development of the summer teachers – many of whom return to the Centre year after year to teach with us. You will line manage a small group (4-5) of permanent teachers. You will teach during the academic year, not in the summer. Of the 1540 hours of work done over 44 weeks (after leave, bank holidays and closure days) you will spend 30% of your time on teaching related duties; around 57% on programme and people development and management and 13% on your own scholarship and development.
£44,045 – £49,553 per annum
You should apply if
You are qualified at Masters level, with a relevant practical teaching qualification and have sufficient experience in EAP 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. 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. You will be working towards a claim for a BALEAP TEAP Senior Fellowship.
