Could you envision a teaching job that enables you to be a part of a large global network?

We are Study Group, a global pathway provider in International Education, and this is just one of the phenomenal benefits that you have when working with us. We are an international, creative, and forward thinking business, and love adaptable people that thrive in this environment. Our Durham University International Study Centre opened last September and has had an amazing first year. This has resulted in some really positive growth, and as we continue to build, we are now offering you as an enthusiastic Maths Tutor, the opportunity to join the Academic Team. We are an unrivalled business; see below just a few examples:

  • An FE environment that isn’t completely restricted by processes.
  • No evening or weekend classes.
  • Holiday that can be taken during term-time.
  • A global network that works with a number of top tier University partners.
  • Rare classroom environment.

What is this role and where does it fit in?

  • You will deliver Maths modules (through up to 25 hours a week teaching) to international students studying on the International Foundation and the Pre-Masters programmes offered by the Centre
  • You’ll assist with the development of modules.
  • Prepare module examinations and other forms of formative and summative assessment.
  • Assisting with the development and maintenance of the Centre’s virtual learning environment (VLE).
  • Providing input for related modules to the annual review and reporting process
  • Maintaining an accurate and up-to-date record of student attendance and performance

What experience do you need?

You will be an adaptable Tutor that is used to working in an ever changing environment. You’ll have a keen interest in International Education, and a good awareness of the challenges involved. You should have a catalogue of innovative and creative classroom activity ideas. Strong communication is key, as well as an infectious positive attitude. See below some key skills that we would love to see:

  • A Bachelor’s degree in a relevant subject area.
  • A teaching Qualification, or a Masters in a relevant subject area would be highly desirable. This is essential to teach on the Level 6 programme.
  • Extensive teaching experience in Maths, from a Further Education or Higher Education environment
  • You will need the ability to develop and update teaching material and preferably experience of working within a Virtual Learning Environment.
  • A student centred approach, that incorporates innovate and creative classroom activities

The Location

Based in the spectacular Queens Campus, it is now a fully functional centre full of talented students from across the globe. The centre runs a dynamic curriculum across the International Foundation, and the Pre-Masters programme. This is a high-energy centre, where no day is the same.
