Lecturer in English for Academic Purposes
With special role: Deputy Director of Academic English Assessment
The International Study and Language Institute (ISLI) delivers academic English, academic study skills and courses for external clients, among a wide range of other activities. This work supports the University’s international students and the academic staff involved in their teaching and development, as well as driving forward the University’s Global Engagement Strategy.
Part of ISLI’s function is to provide English for Academic Purposes (EAP) assessments for programmes delivered in the UK, China and Malaysia (sometimes other places), and the staff CPD surrounding the production and delivery of such assessments. ISLI also produces assessments for external clients. The ISLI Deputy Director of Academic English Assessment will work alongside the ISLI Director of Academic English Assessment on activities such as creating, administering and providing statistical analysis on relevant assessments, while also contributing to assessment literacy for staff. Proven ability to reach out beyond the University, either through scholarship or by working with external clients on assessment, will be an advantage. The ISLI Deputy Director of Academic English Assessment will do some teaching of EAP in proportion to the other responsibilities of the role.
