The Department of Learning and Leadership is a large specialist research and teaching department of approximately 110 academic staff. The breadth of our work includes internationally renowned research, outstanding teaching and teacher training, and cutting edge consultancy and knowledge mobilisation.

We are seeking to appoint a Teaching Fellow for two years to assist with teaching, tutoring and assessment on the MA Early Years Education programmes. The work will entail contributing to teaching on the current modules, and to developing modules year-on-year. The role will involve working primarily on the online MA EYE, but will also include some work on the classroom-based programme. It will also entail contributing to the Dissertation module, and supporting individual students as they plan, conduct and write up their Masters dissertations.

Educated to a Master's level with a degree relevant to early childhood education, the successful candidate will have higher education teaching experience at the postgraduate level. Candidates should have proven ability to supervise Masters Student dissertations, to explain education and international development concepts to home students from a range of backgrounds and disciplines, and to contribute to the broader management and administrative processes.

They will have written and verbal communication and interpersonal skills appropriate for teaching, supervision and collaborative work as well as knowledge of quantitative and qualitative research in the broader social sciences, history, economics and area studies. Evidence of commitment to personal learning, academic and professional development, and to UCL’s policy of equal opportunity and the ability to work harmoniously with colleagues and students of all cultures and backgrounds is essential
