JOB OVERVIEW

At Study Group, our students travel from 142 different countries to study on our Higher Education preparatory courses. The students are miles from their family and will be faced with a new culture, lifestyle, and learning environment. We strive to create a better world through education and value passionate Tutors that share the same passion.

This is an exciting job opportunity where you’ll join the Surrey ISC team as a Social Sciences Tutor.  Teaching small classes of maximum 15 international students studying on our Level 6 programmes, you’ll have the opportunity to work in an autonomous environment where student centred, innovative, lessons are encouraged.

Working at Study Group is a unique experience that offers variety, opportunity, and a fast pace. To be successful in this job role, you’ll be a confident Social Sciences Tutor that understands the needs of learners and encourages independent learning. If the idea of working in a centre that offers exciting development opportunities and where no day is the same is appealing then this is an exciting chance to really make a difference to students from all over the world.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES

There is fantastic opportunity in this job role for you to develop. You’ll have the chance to deliver and develop engaging lessons for students on our Pre-Masters Programmes (Level 6). You will focus on the following modules, being influential in their design and delivery: research design; journal article analysis (with a focus on what it means to think critically); and introduction to psychology at Level 6. You’ll work with the Head of Science and Head of Maths and Computing to refine and develop these, playing a key role in the development of materials for summative and formative assessment. Time will be divided between development work and contact hours, with contact hours peaking in semester 2.
