This post involves the preparation and delivery of workshops, critiques, seminars and tutorials predominantly with year one undergraduate architecture students with some additional teaching required with year two or three cohorts through negotiation with the Course Leader.

The role involves delivering taught sessions in accordance with pre-determined Project Briefs designed to encourage and develop students’ skills and advance creative exploration. You will support students to develop design and technical drawings as they work towards the detailed resolution of their design projects.

The successful candidate will be an enthusiastic and creative teacher who can engage students with architecture through their hands-on approach to drawing and making. You will be able to demonstrate a flexible approach to working with multiple project briefs. A strong background in architectural design is essential, together with teaching experience on an ARB Part 1 or Part 2 accredited Architecture Degree course. We anticipate the successful candidate holding ARB Part 2 qualification with at least 2 years of experience in architectural practice.

Ideally the post holder will be available for 2 days per week throughout the academic year, but suitable candidates who are interested in one day per week will be considered.
