Job Purpose

Think you could develop the next generation of legal talent? We want to hear from you.

We have vacancies across our centres in Waterloo, Holborn, Cambridge, Bristol, Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester

Full-time or Part-time - minimum 0.8 FTE

BPP is looking for tutors to teach knowledge and vocational subjects across a full range of programmes in both a face to face and online environment. These programmes include our newly launched and successful Bar Training Course and Post Graduate Diploma in Law, alongside our new Solicitors Training Course in the forthcoming academic year which prepares learners to sit the Solicitors Qualifying Exam.

And if that wasn’t enough, we’re also introducing new Legal Apprenticeship programmes for future solicitors and paralegals.

We are looking for qualified barristers and solicitors who are thinking of making the move into teaching.  If you are also a solicitor with Higher Rights we would also welcome your application.

In addition to your experience, you’ll be making a crucial difference to future lawyers through contributing to curriculum development and sharing your expertise across a range of diverse study programmes.

This is a unique opportunity to drive excellence in teaching, creation of programme materials and pastoral support for the next generation of legal professionals. If you have a passion for helping individuals grow their core legal skills, study progression and industry knowledge, this is an opportunity that ensures you can do just that.

Key Responsibilities:

As a Law School tutor you will be a go-to subject-matter expert, teaching on a range of Law School programmes and subjects, as well as the following:

  • Working towards level 7 PGCLT qualification or Fellowship of the HEA
  • Creating and marking assessment materials
  • Contributing to curriculum development work, including scholarship and innovation
  • Attending all relevant training in relation to law and practice, course design and innovation
