This post is temporary for 1 year
We are seeking to appoint a vibrant individual to support the International Academy in its work of providing English language courses to European and international students on a 0.5 FTE.
International Academy courses include the International Foundation Year, Pre-Masters, Pre-sessionals, English Language support, Modern Language courses and teacher development courses and it recruits students 17+ from long standing international partners. Our students are supported in their language development so that they may progress onto full time degree programmes or improve their language levels, which in turn offers them a passport to further study or heightened employability opportunities.
You will have experience in English Language delivery and English Language resource development. In addition, you will actively promote the products and services and support teaching and delivery of International Academy courses.
This post will suit an EFL specialist who will have excellent communication skills and experience of dealing with students and partners from a range of cultural backgrounds, with an understanding and respect for cultural diversity. International travel may be required in terms of course delivery, overseas language testing and building stronger links with our partners.
You will have a strong track record of English Language delivery with the ability to plan effectively and ensure that targets are met. You should also be politically aware with high diplomacy, always displaying excellent communication skills.
You will be able to demonstrate a proactive and professional approach, excellent interpersonal skills, good organisational capabilities, the ability to meet deadlines with a high degree of accuracy and the ability to work under pressure and to deadlines. You will be enthusiastic, able to work independently under your own initiative but also have a demonstrable commitment to working collaboratively in a team.
Previous applicants to the International Academy need not apply.
Interviews will be held on Thursday 14th September 2017
