The University for the Creative Arts is seeking to appoint a Learning Development Tutor. Learning Development Tutors provide consultancy and guidance to staff and students in the specialist field of language, literacy and academic practices. They work closely with course teams to contribute to inclusive curriculum development and provide specialist understanding and advice about inclusive teaching, learning and assessment strategies. They are additionally responsible for the tutoring of students in the specialist field of literacy and academic practices. This tutoring may take the form of co-teaching with course tutors, embedded workshops, seminars, lectures, small group sessions and 1-1 tutorials.
The post holder will work collaboratively within a cross-specialist team within Academic Services and with other staff to develop provision and enhance the student experience across the range of FE, UG and PG courses offered at the University. Although primarily based on a single campus, they will travel to the other campuses as required and work closely with colleagues to develop and implement creative and best-practice approaches to teaching, learning and assessment.
The University actively encourages staff development and training. You are expected to participate in training and development activities as necessary to meet job, institutional and personal development.
Training and development is primarily focused as developing you in your present role. However, one part of the long-term training strategy of the University includes identifying personal development needs that will improve your performance and skills as an employee of the University.
