Are you highly skilled in the design and delivery of interdisciplinary, professionally relevant learning at HE level? Have you worked or taught in the field(s) of creative practice and/or community development?  Do you have a thorough appreciation of the support needs of adult students from diverse backgrounds?

As a teaching fellow you will be part of the BA Professional Studies team. This is a new and developing degree programme designed to further the Lifelong Learning Centre’s commitment to widening participation for adult learners.  You will support the Programme Manager to ensure the programme offers an excellent, imaginative, well-managed and supportive learning experience. The programme equips students with an ability to examine issues from interdisciplinary perspectives and to acquire a range of professional skills sought by graduate employers.

You will teach on a range of modules on the programme, including leading a new option module – Creative Interventions in the City (a module which introduces students to: ways of understanding and engaging with the city of Leeds to identify opportunities and problems; community development theories and strategies; applying for arts/community development funding; producing creative work in response to an identified problem/opportunity). The role will also involve supporting teaching on other modules, as well as managing a group of part time tutors, supporting the development of degree pathways and assisting the Programme Manager in student support, supervision of projects, admissions and recruitment/outreach activities.
