We are the University of Cumbria, a place where people are at the heart of all we do, where enriching the lives of our students, staff and the communities we serve means we make a difference that really matters. 

Now is a very exciting time to be joining us because we are delivering a new strategic plan focused on making the most of our three most valuable assets; People, Place and Partnerships, to become a catalyst for economic well-being for our region, nationally and internationally.  

The Ambleside campus is a centre of excellence for conservation and outdoor studies, the home of the National School of Forestry and is the only university campus in the UK located in a UNESCO world heritage site. The campus sits in the heart of the Lake District National Park and is a friendly, welcoming, supportive learning and teaching community.

This is a key role supporting the development of learning, teaching and research through: development of students’ research and academic and information literacies; close liaison with linked academic teams; the provision of subject library resource services to academic staff including library collection development and electronic reading list creation. Academic literacies development includes designing and delivering synchronous and asynchronous learning materials and sessions (online, individual support and group sessions) across a number of topics: information skills, academic writing practices, referencing and avoiding plagiarism, study skills and digital literacies.

The skills@cumbria team work collaboratively with each other, other professional services and academics to provide an integrated student-centred approach to skills and academic literacies development. You will liaise within dedicated programme areas working closely with the Institute of Science and Education courses delivered at the Ambleside campus, including conservation, forestry, geography and outdoor studies. 

You will have strong guidance and coaching experience, excellent IT skills and a passion for literacy. You will have demonstratable experience of planning, delivering and coordinating learner support interventions with direct face to face educational activities with groups and individuals. A clear understanding of the importance of Information and Digital Literacy is essential.

This role is based on-site due to the practical nature of the work.
