Are you passionate about developing others? Do you have experience of supporting colleagues to develop their academic practice? Are you keen to contribute to the development of new services to support excellent academic practice? 

You will be positive, enthusiastic and self-motivated with excellent facilitation and interpersonal skills, plus extensive relevant experience and knowledge to enable you to provide effective support to academic colleagues and Post Graduate Research students (PGRs).  

You will provide expert input on a range of provision to support the enhancement of academic practice in learning and teaching.  Our portfolio supports the delivery of the University’s strategy for Student Education and includes: the credit bearing Post Graduate Certificate in Academic Practice accredited by the HEA; a scheme for professional recognition (PRISE); a programme for staff and Post Graduate Researchers who are new to teaching; and the provision of bespoke development interventions designed in consultation with Faculties and Schools. In this role, you will contribute across the range of provision.

The Academic Practice Team is part of the Organisational and Professional Development Department (OD&PL).  Our provision is shaped by the University strategy and priorities, and is informed by sector standards and best practice in learning, teaching and research development.
