We have received a number of queries from Tutors and potential applicants around the possible operational need to work on the University’s campus and the likelihood of this happening. The COVID-19 pandemic has called for a dramatic shift in our operations, with the current proposal for this course to be delivered online. However, despite the University having a recovery plan to a return to a new normal, Government advice is forever evolving and we cannot categorically rule out Tutors being required to work from the University campus for this round of English for Academic Purposes courses. Our contract of employment lists the place of work as Loughborough University and so, if operational need dictates, the contract expectation is that Tutors will be available to teach on campus. It is unfortunate that we cannot offer any more certainty than this at the current time, but wanted to be clear that it remains a distinct possibility that Tutors may be required to work from the University campus.
