Study Start Tutor

Global Engagement
Salary:   £21.09 per hour
Closing Date:   Sunday 14 March 2021
Interview Date:   Friday 26 March 2021
Reference:  A3308

Experienced tutors required for fixed-term tutor positions of 4 weeks duration on Lancaster University’s Study Start Programme (September 6th to October 8th 2021).  Study Start aims to increase international students’ confidence in settling into the academic culture of the UK before starting their degree course. The programme comprises two weeks of teaching, preceded by an orientation week and followed by an assignment marking and feedback week for tutors. The role features specially tailored materials provided to tutors, and a supportive and collegial teaching environment.

Study Start Tutors are expected to moderate students’ progress online (using the programme materials provided or developed during the induction). The posts are full-time and intensive, and involve teaching, lesson planning and preparation, setting and marking of assignments and tests, and digital record-keeping, report writing, provision of feedback on students’ writing, student profiling, participation in programme planning and in all other aspects of course-related administration, including meetings, as determined by the programme Coordinators.

A tailor-made package of teaching materials and other resources is provided for each main programme component. A two-week part-time orientation, in which tutors are introduced to the programme teaching materials and procedures, and digital platforms is built into the beginning of the posts and is at the full rate of pay. The first week of the orientation is independent learning so that tutors can work around other commitments.

An assignment marking week at the full rate of pay is also included at the end of the period of employment to enable tutors to provide students with detailed feedback.

We welcome applications from people in all diversity groups.

N.B. If you wish to be considered for both the Study Start and EAP Tutor positions, please apply only for the EAP Tutor position and indicate this when applying.

Due to the short-term nature of this role, we are not able to support candidates needing a work visa.
