Lecturer in Primary Education

We are looking for an experienced teacher to join our primary teacher training and education studies team. This is an opportunity to shape the next generation of teachers and those who play vital supporting roles in education. We are keen to recruit a teacher with recent primary classroom expertise and support/CPD will be made available to enable the post holder to make the transition to Higher Education. The knowledge and confidence to teach other aspects will be advantageous for example in behaviour management, SEN, EAL or specific primary curriculum subjects. You will contribute to the teaching of the BA (Hons) Primary Education, PGCE and Education Studies degrees mainly.  The post holder should be able to support students as both a personal and academic tutor and contribute to a range of theoretical and practical modules at undergraduate level.

The professional strand of the primary courses involves supporting trainees to meet the teaching standards and therefore a confident grasp of the theoretical and practical aspects of classroom practice for this age group are required. The ability to carry out teaching observations and provide constructive feedback to students will also be an aspect of this role. Good knowledge and understanding of the use of IT in education and teaching practice is required.

The range of teaching duties and specifically the modules to be taught will partly rely on the expertise and experience of the applicant and therefore negotiable on appointment.

A check with the disclosure and barring service will be undertaken for this post.
