Experienced tutors required for fixed-term summer programme positions of 5 weeks duration on Lancaster University’s EAP (Study Skills) Programme (August 24th to September 25th 2020). The programme aims to prepare students for university study by helping them develop their higher-level academic language and study practices, and features specially tailored materials provided to Tutors, a supportive and collegial teaching environment, and an orientation week at full pay. 

EAP Tutors are expected to conduct classes (using the programme materials provided or developed during the induction week). The posts are full-time and intensive, and involve teaching on the programme, lesson planning and preparation, setting and marking of assignments and tests, paper-based 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. An orientation week, in which tutors are introduced to the programme teaching materials and procedures, is built into the beginning of the posts and is at the full rate of pay. 

The EAP (Study Skills) Programme 

The EAP (Study Skills) Programme caters for international students intending to study at Lancaster University who are required or wish to improve their English language and study skills before starting their degree programmes. The programme comprises 4-weeks of teaching, preceded by an orientation week for tutors. 

Last year, around 330 students attended the programme. The majority were from South-East Asia. Around 40% of the students were undergraduates. Altogether, approximately 70% of the students were enrolled in degree programmes in the Management School, ca. 20% were studying in a variety of areas in the Social Sciences, and the remainder were pursuing degrees in Science and Technology or Health and Medicine. 

N.B. If you wish to be considered for both EAP and Study Start 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 in getting a work visa.
