Would you like to join one of the biggest and best run pre-sessional courses in the UK? Our programme was commended by BALEAP in Summer 2017 for its excellent organisation and tutor support.

If you have a DELTA or equivalent and minimum of 3 years’ relevant teaching experience, then we want to hear from you. Our programme includes a week long paid induction which will prepare you to deliver our EAP course.

We offer a competitive salary and benefits package including free self-catering University accommodation for teachers from outside the area. As a result, many of our summer teachers come back year after year. As we need our teachers throughout the programme, holidays are paid at the end of the contract.

You will join a supportive team focussed on preparing students for their University studies. The programme is designed to give students practice in the activities they will undertake at University and they are assessed on their performance on the programme. We employ innovative technological approaches to support learning and teaching – described by BALEAP as ‘sector leading’. Plenty of training and guidance are provided during induction and throughout the programme.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
