Applications are invited for the post of a Teaching Fellow on the Sciences strand of the Integrated Foundation Year (STEM). 

The Integrated Foundation Degree (IFY) is a developmental programme that aims to prepare students for success in higher education and beyond. The programme encourages students to become active lifelong learners providing the opportunity for development through a holistic, coherent curriculum that delivers knowledge, understanding and skills in a fully integrated way. Within the regulative qualification framework, it is distinctive from A Level, other Level 3 and undergraduate study, sitting somewhere between the two – level three and a half working towards level 4. Aligned with Royal Holloway's emphasis on widening access, the IFY programme supports students from under-represented backgrounds and those often overlooked in traditional higher education. 

The successful candidate will have a PhD (or near to completion), a recognised teaching qualification, and experience teaching at levels 3 and 4 would be desirable. The post holders will play a key role in delivering and assessing NQF level 3 subject content and transition to level 4 on the Sciences strand in at least two of the following areas:

  • Computer Programming (especially Python)
  • Biological, Earth and Health Sciences 
  • Computer Science and Electronic Engineering

Interdisciplinary candidates who can teach across multiple areas within the Foundation Year pathways are highly encouraged. Candidates will also be expected to contribute to the core Interdisciplinary Approaches units, which use topical issues (such as climate change, pandemics and nuclear warfare) as a springboard for teaching academic and critical thinking skills. 

Curriculum development may also be required as part of the drive to improve teaching and learning within the Centre continuously. Marking, course administration and pastoral support are integral to the role.

Successful candidates should be enthusiastic, empathetic and student-centred practitioners, bring intellectual excitement and energy to the teaching, and have subject-specific knowledge and experience of teaching at level 3 and/or undergraduate level. Candidates should be passionate about developing students' skills and interested in innovative approaches to an inclusive university education. 

In return, we offer a highly competitive rewards and benefits package, including:

  •  Generous annual leave entitlement 
  • Training and Development opportunities
  • Pension Scheme with generous employer contribution 
  • Various schemes, including Cycle to Work, Season Ticket Loans, and, help with the cost of Eyesight testing. 
  • Free parking

The post is based in Egham, Surrey, where the College is situated on a beautiful, leafy campus near Windsor Great Park and within commuting distance from London.
