The role

Post title: Bank Lecturer

Salary: £29 per hour

Hours: Ad hoc to provide cover as and when required

Location: 39-41 Upper Oldfield Park, Bath, BA2 3LB / York Place, London Road, Bath, BA1 6AE

Would you like to work for an organisation steeped in history but focused on the future and recognised worldwide as an organisation of excellence?  An organisation that promotes a healthy work/life balance and recognises and rewards achievements?  If so, then Norland is the place for you.

Our award-winning early years undergraduate degree and integrated diploma programme is world-renowned for delivering outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for our students. In March 2019 we were also granted Taught Degree Awarding Powers (TDAP) by the Privy Council and now offer our own BA (Hons) Early Years Development and Learning degree alongside the prestigious Norland diploma. We were recently named the top university in the UK for enhanced graduate outcomes in the 2021 Whatuni Student Choice Awards.

We are looking to appoint a small group of bank lecturers who will be available to provide ad-hoc teaching cover when required, sometimes at short notice. Students at Norland study a unique combination of the BA (Hons) Early Years Development and Learning degree programme together with the Norland Diploma, a practical based course which prepares students for working with babies, young children and their families.

As a lecturer, you will teach on the degree programme but will make appropriate links to putting theory into practice. The role includes preparing and delivering lectures and marking student assignments.

You must have substantial experience of working within the early years sector and with students in the early years field and hold a relevant higher degree (MA) OR have a relevant undergraduate degree and be actively working towards an MA or equivalent.

The successful candidate will need to be a self-starter, with the ability to get on well with people, be highly organised in order to meet deadlines and work to a high level of accuracy in a fast-paced environment. A flexible approach to work and a friendly, approachable nature are key to being successful in this role.
