The University of Bristol is looking for suitable candidates to fill a range of English for Academic Purposes course development and management roles. We are an ambitious Centre within the University with three growing core areas: 1) International Foundation Programme (IFP) 2) Pre-sessional EAP provision (PS) 3) Academic Language and Literacy Provision (ALL). As the Centre evolves with the demands of UK Higher Education, the co-ordination role is unlikely to stay exactly the same, hence an interest in all aspects of the Centre’s provision (and an awareness of this potential) is important.

There are multiple roles available:

  • EAP Co-ordinator (ESAP) full time permanent
  • EAP Co-ordinator (Assessment specialist) full time permanent
  • This post is yet to be agreed but may become available:
  • EAP Co-ordinator (short courses) – initially as 0.4 FTE permanent

Please indicate in your cover letter if you would like to be considered for both or just one variant of the EAP co-ordinator role.

As a start, you will need to be a good tutor, confident enough that you think you can teach virtually all levels and all variants of EAP / Academic Literacy, and extremely comfortable in the creation of material and courses, both personally but also motivating and guiding others. It’s a given that you’re qualified and have sufficient experience to persuade our team of tutors to follow you. You will be surrounded by extremely able colleagues and will work with a supportive management team. Saying that, it’s likely you will think there’s too much to do, so it’s key that you know from the start that an ability to juggle workload at the same time as helping tutors do the same is vital.

We’re broadly happy with the direction the Centre is moving, but each person in a new role needs to add something to the mix, and that’s one of the things we’ll be looking for. We will also expect you to have views on where you want a future Centre to ‘be’, and some ideas on how you think we’ll get ‘there’.

As a Centre, we adhere to the principles of collaboration, development, reflexivity, autonomy, transparency and transferability at all levels of our operation. If you feel that these principles are a good fit for your own, then we look forward to receiving an application from you detailing how you can contribute to the Centre’s success. In turn, we will work with you to further your development as an EAP practitioner.

Please have a good look at our website to get a feel for what we do and how we do it. For any further information, please contact

We appreciate and value difference, seeking to attract, develop and retain a diverse mix of talented people that will contribute to the overall success of Bristol and help maintain our position as one of the world’s leading universities.
