Senior Teaching Fellow- Foundation Programme Business and Economics

University of Surrey - Surrey Business School

The University is embarking on an exciting new initiative, offering Foundation Year programmes that will provide the best possible preparation for degree level study. The Foundation Year programme for Business and Economics will be delivered across a range of programmes within the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. These programmes offer a new and exciting route into studying for a degree, attracting ambitious and highly motivated students.

The students accepted to study on the Foundation Year programmes  are taught and assessed at sub-degree level (FHEQ level 3 i.e. equivalent to A-levels), and comprise modules teaching academic subjects and study skills, which, upon successful completion, provide a direct pathway to undergraduate degree level study.

We are seeking an exceptional individual with drive and enthusiasm to lead the Foundation Year programmes in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. As these are new programmes to the University, the successful candidate should be able to engage with a wide range of stakeholders to promote the Foundation Year programmes and be instrumental in fostering their success.

As the Senior Teaching Fellow the successful candidate will liaise with those teaching on the core degree programmes to ensure the appropriateness of content to prepare students on these Foundation Year programmes for entry to FEHQ Level 4 and provide academic support and advice to both staff and students within the Faculty. The successful candidate will have responsibility for the development of teaching methods, materials, technologies and learning environments which will enhance the students learning opportunities whilst creating an environment for understanding and enthusiasm amongst students.

The Senior Teaching Fellow on the Foundation Year programme will also liaise with staff in the Student Personal Learning and Study Hub in designing and developing the programmes.

The successful candidate will lead the programme in Business and Economics, and as such they will have a background suitable for that role. The successful candidate should possess a track record of excellent teaching, have a teaching qualification and have a degree or equivalent in an appropriate subject.

The University of Surrey aims to be an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.

Interviews will be scheduled for April 2018.
