Additional Information

Please note, for this position, we will not be able to offer sponsorship and therefore you must be eligible to work in the UK.

 

All applicants for both online and campus-based programmes must be based in the UK for the duration of their contracts. Applicants must:

  • provide evidence of their right to work in the UK in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2016 and the Immigration Act 2016.;
  • hold a National Insurance number;

All successful candidates, without exception, will be required to complete a ‘Right to Work’ check in line with UKVI requirements.  A right to work check must be conducted at least one day prior to the start of the contract. This applies to teachers with contracts for campus-based or online programmes. There may be the requirement for the Right to Work check to be conducted in person.

 

Subsidised on campus accommodation is available for tutors for the duration of their contracts if required.

Tutors must be available for the full duration of the programme.

 

You should be a graduate with a CELTA or equivalent, ideally hold a DELTA or equivalent and / or relevant MA/MSc, have significant experience teaching English language to adult learners, have an understanding of EAP and possess excellent IT skills. Experience of teaching EAP year round or on a pre-sessional programme at a UK HEI would be an advantage. Another advantage would be experience teaching on an online course.
