This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a joint institute with Beijing Jiao Tong University (BJTU). The campus is located close to Wei Hai in the eastern Shandong province and a major seaport, bordering Yantai to the west and the Yellow Sea to the east. You will be based, for the majority of time (up to 40 weeks) at Nan Hai, with an induction at Lancaster University and the rest of time working remotely. There will be a housing provision for accommodation in China, medical cover and return flights included in the remuneration package. The accommodation is conveniently located near the teaching campus. As both are situated in a remote, rural area, opportunities for shopping, travel and leisure are limited.  However, there is a beach and seaside area close by with restaurants and a fish market.

You will have the opportunity to teach on our English and Study Skills modules, which is part of the Foundation Year and a four-year degree programme for Chinese students, leading to a dual award from both institutions. There are four modules, spread over two years. In addition, you will have the opportunity to contribute to the on-going development of this relatively new programme.

This crucial first year of the degree course prepares our Chinese students for entry into the second year of their chosen degree courses at the joint institute, where there are six pathways: Computing, Design, Communications Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Accounting & Finance and Business Studies. 

Main duties of this role are: to deliver student-centred classes incorporating opportunities for developing independent learning skills; to create supplementary relevant teaching materials, provide learner support; to evaluate learning through a range of assessment methods, and to keep up-to-date records as required by Lancaster University. 

You should have TESOL/CELTA qualifications with recent experience of teaching English for Academic Purposes. Post graduate teaching qualifications (MA TESOL/ or DELTA) are highly desirable. You will be expected to have tutorial experience; working in both large and small group settings. 

Experience of teaching international students, ideally Chinese students, plus proficiency in the use of interactive technologies is essential.  You must be available to commence in the role by this coming August/September.

This is a full-time position and the modules to be covered are taught up to 25 hours per week.

Please note: There are several positions available.
