Pre-sessional English (EAP) Tutors

Coventry University

Coventry University’s Languages and EAP team are offering an exciting opportunity for experienced EAP tutors to join their PSE 2023 summer courses.

Tutors are sought for both online and face-to-face courses which will run simultaneously. Both courses follow the same syllabus and summative assessment structure.

Post holders will be expected to complete teaching, assessment, feedback, final report writing, administration and pastoral duties to a high standard to provide an excellent student experience and to enable high progression to the students’ degree courses.

You will work alongside a team of Course Leaders and permanent tutors who will support and guide you through the programme. A full induction, course syllabus and materials will be provided. For tutors new to EAP, training and support will be given through a dedicated CPD programme and our buddy scheme.
