You should have excellent interpersonal skills and ability to inspire and engage the interest and enthusiasm of students, along with a proven ability to teach, either gained within a practice-orientated education setting that incorporates a variety of learning environments such as large scale lectures, workshops and small group tutorials, or, if from a professional practice background, demonstrate experience of teaching and developing other professionals together with high quality presentation and/or facilitation skills.
