The Faculty of Education and Health has a large and varied portfolio and offers a range of multi-disciplinary degrees, masters and taught doctorate programmes.  The PGCE and BA programmes, within the Department of Primary Education, are very well regarded and were graded outstanding in our recent Ofsted inspection (November 2016).  We also offer an innovative two year accelerated degree in primary education (non QTS).  We have an excellent reputation for our provision, with high student satisfaction ratings and graduate employment rates.  Applications are invited from suitably qualified individuals who wish to further develop their career within the Primary Education department. We are seeking to appoint a flexible and adaptable professional who is committed to providing a high quality experience for students across our programmes within the department.  We would welcome applications from candidates with QTS and experience of working in a primary classroom.  Depending on the successful candidate’s areas of strength/ expertise they will be required to teach on the two programmes leading to the recommendation for QTS and/ or the two year accelerated degree in Primary Education.  There will also be opportunities to engage with participant led research in education contexts.  The successful candidate will be expected to be an active researcher with publications or the potential to publish at 2* level.  Expected start date is September 1st, 2017.
