University of Leicester
About the role
The University of Leicester has partnerships with two universities in China. Since 2017 we have partnered with Dalian University of Technology (DUT) offering a range of College of Science and Engineering Bachelor degree programmes and in 2020 the first intake of students started at Chongqing Medical University (CQMU), studying a Bachelor’s programme of Clinical Medicine and Clinical Science.
The courses are taught in English by academic staff from the UK and PRC, integrating an intensive English Language course within the first year of degree. Typically, the University of Leicester is responsible for providing all lecture and course material for the core curriculum, the English language modules and teaching 50% of the modules for each programme. As an EAP tutor, you will be responsible for delivering the English language modules to first year students.
We are seeking EAP tutors who can teach high-quality lessons within a communicative approach. You should be able to adapt to institutional and student needs and be willing to collaborate with colleagues in the ongoing development of the English language programme. Additionally, as this is a collaborative provision delivered offshore, you should be able to adapt to unpredictable challenges both inside and outside the classroom.
You will hold a recognised TEFLI qualification, such as CELTA or the equivalent, with substantial experience EFL. You will also have experience of teaching on pre-sessional or in-sessional EAP courses in a university context.
Informal enquiries are welcome and should be made to Gary Marston on [email protected] or James Lambert on [email protected] .
Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis as we continually review the teaching requirements for the summer courses. If you haven’t heard within one month of submitting your application, you can assume that you haven’t been successful. The outcome of your application will be confirmed by 30 September 2023 at the latest.
The University of Leicester has been changing the world, and changing people’s lives, for 100 years. When you join us, you’ll become part of a community of Citizens of Change , which includes not only our staff and our current students but also thousands of Leicester graduates around the world.
As a diverse and forward-thinking employer, we embed the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion into everything we do. That includes not just our core missions of teaching and research, but also our support for staff, students and our local community through our values of Inspiring, Impactful and Inclusive.
We’re committed to the wellbeing of all our staff and to the sustainability of our environment, on our campus and beyond. We offer a competitive salary package, excellent pension scheme and a generous annual leave allowance, along with opportunities to develop your career in a supportive and collaborative environment.
