We are looking to appoint an Academic and Study Skills Tutor (Writing Project) on a full-time, permanent basis. The tutor will lead on the development, design, and evaluation of the Learner Development team's suite of Writing Project short courses, which are designed to enhance the academic writing abilities of students across all levels and subject disciplines at the University.
Our tutors work in partnership with students at all levels (from foundation year through to doctoral study) and across all degree programmes. Through close collaboration with faculty-based colleagues, tutors plan and teach bespoke academic skills sessions that are embedded into credit-bearing courses and units. This provision is supplemented by a comprehensive extra-curricular offer open to all students, including workshops, short courses, one-to-one tutorials, and online self-study materials. The successful candidates will contribute to all aspects of our provision, including the creation of new digital learning materials to support the continual enhancement of the service. They must be comfortable in teaching in online and on-campus environments, ranging from one-to-one tutorials through to large group settings.
Inclusivity and accessibility underpin all our work, so candidates must understand issues affecting students' learning experience in a diverse higher education environment. Ultimately, Academic and Study Skills Tutors contribute to the innovative development and delivery of learning development provision that is designed to empower students to excel at Manchester Metropolitan University.
Applicants must be educated to degree level or equivalent. This position is primarily a teaching role, so candidates must demonstrate suitable teaching experience, perhaps through holding a Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education, equivalent qualification, or relevant membership (e.g., Fellowship of Advance HE). The team regularly engages in CPD, with lots of opportunities provided to share best practice within and beyond the team.
In completing your application, please upload a CV (no more than 3 pages), together with a letter outlining your ability to perform the role and relevant experience. In addressing the criteria questions (the final part of the application), please keep each response to no more than 250 words.
If you have any questions, informal enquiries can be made to Dr Chad McDonald (Senior Academic and Study Skills Tutor) by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
In recognition of staff contributions to the University's achievements during the 2021/2022 academic year, an additional discretionary payment of 2% per annum will be added to your salary until 31/07/23 in order to ensure consistency amongst existing and incoming staff. This additional 2% will be paid pro rata in equal monthly installments, on top of your salary each month until 31/07/23.
