Bar Course Designer
Appointment of Bar Course Designers
£55,000 plus excellent benefits
Based in London, the Inns of Court College of Advocacy (ICCA) is recruiting experienced academic designers and educators to contribute to the creation and launch of a new postgraduate Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) – the essential qualification required for a career as a barrister. Using innovative blended learning methodology, the ICCA aims to improve access to the profession by providing a pathway which allows for flexibility, high standards, accessibility and affordability.
The ICCA Programme Director seeks to recruit experienced Bar Course Designers to take a leading role in the design and development of the BPTC. These roles will be on a 24-month Fixed Term Contract in the first instance. At the end of the contract period, and following the successful implementation and launch of the BPTC, this may be reviewed and the post-holder be given an opportunity to move in to a permanent instructional role on the BPTC, subject to meeting certain criteria set by the ICCA Programme Director and the Inns of Court.
This exciting new ground-breaking role offers a challenging yet rewarding position for an experienced and innovative Bar educator to enhance existing experience of course design with the latest learning methodologies and media content. All designers will be part of a skilled team which will design, develop and project manage every aspect of the course ahead of a targeted start date for the course in 2020. The ICCA will, throughout the BPTC project, continue its role of delivering high quality advocacy materials and bespoke advocacy and ethics projects to the practising Bar for which there will also be design opportunities.
A full job description and person specification is available on the COIC website www.coic.org.uk/vacancies.
Applications should be made by way of a CV with a covering letter setting out your suitability for the role emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on 4th December 2017. Applications for part time roles will be considered.
The ICCA requires the appointed candidate to be available to start work by no later than March 2018, and sooner if possible.
