Job description

We are looking for an experienced teacher educator to contribute to our initial teacher education programmes for the post-14 sector.   UCLan has an extensive Teacher Education partnership across fourteen FE colleges in the North West, and you will be part of a small team working on the development, quality assurance and administration of partner college-based PGCE and Certificate in Education programmes (post-compulsory). Key aspects of the role will be working with partner colleges preparing for Ofsted inspection and planning staff development for partner staff. The ability to lead the Maths/numeracy teaching awards would be an advantage. The role also involves contributing to teaching, administration and research in the field of education and professional development, with possible involvement in international projects.
