That syllabus includes topics such as: understanding the self; understanding others; intergroup behaviour; language and communication; attitudes and behaviour; attitudes and persuasion; argumentation; attraction and intimate relationships.

The module is delivered on Monday evenings 6pm to 9pm for 10 weeks from January 2023 to April 2023, with accompanying marking responsibilities. All assessment is by coursework.

  • A first degree in Psychology or an equivalent relevant qualification.
  • Advanced experience in using a range of statistical techniques and report writing suitable for quantitative psychological science research.
  • Awareness of the needs of part-time adult learners and ability to engage the interest and enthusiasm of students and inspire them to learn.
  • Confident presentation skills and ability to clearly and effectively pass on specialist subject area knowledge.
  • Effective oral and written communication skills, to convey both simple and more complex information and academic concepts.
  • A good working knowledge of SPSS.

  • The ability able to work both as part of a team and independently as appropriate and have the ability to support teaching.
  • A willingness to engage in reflective practice.
  • Remuneration:

    Payment is based on an hourly rate depending on length of continuous service with the College (starting rate £63.55 per hour inclusive of pro-rata London Allowance and holiday pay) for contact hours worked. This hourly rate is based on the starting point of Grade 7 and is inclusive of a ‘Duties Related to Teaching Multiplier' which covers preparation, teaching, administration, assessment marking and other examining duties in connection with the course.
