The University of Wolverhampton is a leading modern university with a tradition of providing opportunity and academic excellence dating back 150 years. The University serves a student body drawn predominantly from the West Midlands, with a significant UK wide population and a vibrant international community. 


The Institute of Education is seeking to appoint a Lecturer to lead the Early Years phase in Initial Teacher Education and the wider curriculum. 


You will be expected to make significant contribution to the provision of high-quality teaching, research and income generation where appropriate. You will have a proven track record of teaching Early Years and related areas and experience of practice in this area. You will be committed to enhancing the student experience and contributing to the performance and development of the wider Institute of Education. Ideally you will have a record of scholarly activity and research (or the capacity to achieve this), hold a Master's level qualification (or equivalent) and possess or be working towards/willing to undertake a higher degree qualification at some point.  This role does require someone who has clear knowledge, skills and understanding as well as demonstrable experience of the PSRB requirements.  


Applications are invited for this demanding role which provides scope for personal initiative and an exciting challenge for a creative and enthusiastic individual with a wide knowledge of the dynamic and rapidly developing Early Years and across the wider primary curriculum. 


In the first instance, please read the job specification and person specification for details about the post.  For further information, please contact Dr Rachel Morgan-Guthrie  - Head of Primary Education (
