Lecturer in Early Childhood
The Department for Education, Childhood and Inclusion has a wide remit with a commitment to enabling its graduates to work in a wide variety of roles, often, but not exclusively, in educational settings. We recently were rated as 3rd highest performing new university for education research in the 2014 REF, and are currently actively seeking to enhance performance in the 2020 REF.
As a Lecturer you will teach on the Foundation Degree Early Years, BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies, BA (Hons) Childhood Studies course and you may also contribute to postgraduate courses. You will teach across a range of modules related to children and childhood; designing and delivering innovative, high quality and challenging learning experiences, which equip your students with the skills, knowledge and attributes required by employers. You will also have responsibility for student related support (e.g. tutorials, marking and feedback, contributing to course development).
You must have a well-developed and current knowledge and understanding of critical, practical and theoretical issues relevant to children and childhood and experience of teaching, training or supervising. The ability to inspire, motivate and connect with a range of stakeholders is also essential.
We particularly welcome applicants from underrepresented groups
For non-EU applicants, we are unlikely to be able to offer a certificate of sponsorship for this job (unless you are switching from a UK student visa), so you should only apply if you already have unrestricted permission to work in the UK.
