We are seeking experienced individuals to support us with the delivery of the BA Honours Degree in Food, Nutrition and Textiles Education. This opportunity is specifically to join the team who support School placement visits throughout Scotland and therefore UHI Perth are seeking experienced and GTCS registered teachers of Home Economics for this role.

This role may suit someone who currently has a part-time role as Teacher of Home Economics in a school or may have recently retired from the profession. We have opportunities to for experienced individuals to work with us for 1 day per week during school placement periods. There would be the opportunity to flex this up to 3 or 4 days per week at peak times for those interested in additional hours.

There may also be an opportunity to contribute to the learning and teaching on the programme. This is likely to be regular weekly hours but again could range from 0.5 day per week upwards.

This innovative degree provides an undergraduate route to a teaching qualification for Secondary Home Economics in Scotland. The degree was developed in consultation with the profession to provide graduates to address the national shortage in Home Economics teachers. The programme has now been established for 5 years and our graduates are now contributing to the profession in schools. We are seeking to enhance our team with an inspiring teacher of Home Economics with evidence of leading curricular innovation in school and ensuring success for pupils in SQA exams for this exciting role.

A knowledge of online Virtual Learning Environments is desired, but training will be provided. As noted, School Placement visits will form part of this role and again full training and support will be provided.
