To promote a flexible workforce, the University will consider applications from individuals seeking full time, part time, job share, or term time only working arrangements.
This is an opportunity to join a team of tutors to make a practical contribution to promoting the Welsh language. Aberystwyth University has received funding from the National Centre for Learning Welsh to employ a full-time tutor, for one year in the first instance, to teach Welsh to parents and carers in schools in Aberystwyth.
This post supports Ceredigion County Council’s Welsh in Education Strategic plan. By September 2032, Ceredigion County Council's aspiration is that all pupils in the authority's schools will attend Welsh-medium immersion education until the age of seven.
The tutor will work closely with four primary schools in the Aberystwyth area to support schools to realise the vision. The tutor will provide a flexible teaching programme to support parents and carers to learn Welsh. A key aim of the programme is to pilot a Confidence Building scheme for parents who have passive knowledge of Welsh.
We plan to hold in person learning activities in accordance with public health measures, but online learning on Zoom may be undertaken if necessary.
You will be an effective second language tutor, and you will also have excellent interpersonal skills, and the ability to support learners from different backgrounds. An understanding of the psychology of language use would be very beneficial, and you will have a good understanding of methods to support learners to change their language use.
