Leeds Beckett University - Carnegie School of Education

This is an exciting time to join the Carnegie School of Education at Leeds Beckett University. As well as becoming one of the best performing providers of teacher education in the country, we’ve developed a reputation for innovation in our teaching, curriculum and partnership work. We’ve also created a strategy to embed research into everything we do but not just any research – we want to develop research that improves the life chances of children and young people, creating real impact in regional, national and international contexts. We’re also committed to embedding our practice into our extensive partnership, funding collaborative practitioner research in schools, evaluating private sector corporate and social responsibility projects and supporting social enterprises to build capacity.

As a result of growing student numbers, we’re seeking to appoint an inspirational and creative Online Tutor. The successful candidate will support our online students across our postgraduate provision, from our online PGCE to our MA degrees. The successful candidate will be able to:

  • provide advice and guidance to academic colleagues in the design and delivery of teaching materials in the digital learning environment
  • monitor and report on student engagement
  • contribute to the writing and development of online teaching materials
  • provide students with the skills and advice to help develop the necessary skills for academic success
  • provide IT guidance (and signposting to the relevant technical services) to enable students to study and learn online
  • provide support and motivation to students whilst studying in the complex online environment.

You will have a first degree and a Masters in a relevant area and be able to demonstrate an outstanding record of achievement in online teaching and student support.
