Student Transition Teacher-Bioscience
Permanent (Full time)
Temporary post until 31st October 2022
As the University of Opportunity, we believe in offering life-changing education for our students. Many of those students are first-in-family to higher education, may be parents or carers, have a disability or be from one or more of the disadvantaged groups. All of these students have the ability to succeed, but need to be provided with the right opportunities and the right levels of support to enable them to progress through the levels and onto their degree.
The Faculty of Science and Engineering is wishing to appoint a Student Transition Teacher to cover maternity leave. The University is actively seeking applications from all backgrounds, ages, disabilities and ethnicities which represents our student population.
This exciting role will offer qualified teachers, with a PGCE for the Post Compulsory Sector, an opportunity to teach and support level 3 and level 4 students within the University. The emphasis of the role will be on providing excellent teaching and supporting students during the transition from the post compulsory sector or students re-entering higher education learning.
You will be expected to teach an average of hours per week (); teach on a broad spectrum of generic and specialist subjects; teach small groups of students and assist student with their Personal Development Planning. This is not a lecturing role and you will not be expected to provide lectures to large groups.
The Teacher role will focus on planning engaging classroom activities to meet the diverse needs of our students, providing new and innovated ways of teaching lessons and facilitating learning, integrating blended learning and forming a community of practice with Academic Coaches and other Teachers across the Faculties.
You will have a teaching qualification and experience teaching at level 3/4 in higher education and/or the post compulsory sector. You will ideally have experience working in a further education/foundation year setting and have an undergraduate/postgraduate qualification in a relevant or closely related subject area. You will be expected to teach on a broad area of core foundation and level 4 modules. Experience of successful classroom management and assessment for learning in a blended learning environment is essential to the role.
The role will include engagement with outreach/recruitment activities, establishing links with schools, colleges and adult learning environments.
