Philosophy at the Mary Ward Centre
Our Philosophy classes are an important and popular part of the Humanities curriculum offer. We run one of the most extensive range of non-accredited Adult Education philosophy programmes in the country, with courses at beginners, intermediate, upper-intermediate and advanced levels. We are looking for someone who is keen, inspirational and has a special flair. We are interested in talking to someone with a depth of knowledge in general philosophy but who is also in a position to offer more in-depth and specialist courses on particular topics to complement our current offer. Details of the kinds of courses we have run in recent years are available on request and a limited range of these can be viewed on our website. You are very welcome to include proposals of the kinds of courses you would like to offer as part of the application process.
The Mary Ward Centre offers high quality adult education and community services, covering the areas of Digital Media, Computing & IT, Business and Management, English and Maths, Languages, Humanities and Social Sciences, Health and Social Care, Writing and Publishing, Visual Arts, Music and Singing.
The Centre’s main premises at 42 Queen Square, Holborn consist of two interconnecting Grade II listed Georgian houses overlooking the Square. The Centre also holds classes in a second, modern building at Blackfriars Settlement, 1 Rushworth Street, SE1 0RB which is a short walk from Southwark Station. The atmosphere at both buildings is relaxed and friendly but purposeful. Students come from all walks of life, both local and London wide (and beyond). Their education, work and life experience varies enormously.
In recent years, we have also expanded our provision of courses to include some courses delivered partly or wholly online via the Zoom platform. We may consider running a course in this mode of delivery if in our view there is a compelling reason to do so.
