The Foundation Year Associate Lecturers work with the wider Institute of Foundation Studies team in a collaborative, engaging and collegiate working environment that focusses on student experience and equipping students for their undergraduate degree.

Based in one of our study centres, you will be prepared to work flexibly, teaching both in the daytime and evening (at times), when needed. You will have excellent subject knowledge, but will be adaptable, thriving when teaching across a range of multidisciplinary subject and academic skills modules.

Your focus as an Associate Lecturer will be to design engaging teaching materials, ensuring content and methods of delivery meet defined learning objectives. You will deliver excellent teaching and learning across our Institute’s programme portfolio.
