We are the largest provider of Nursing, Midwifery, Health and Social Care students in the East of England, and we are also among the UK's leading universities for degree apprenticeship provision, working with hundreds of employers across the UK.

    About the role:

    We have an opening for a Distance Learning Tutor to deliver content via distance learning on our BA (Hons) Criminology.

    Module delivery will involve supporting students as they work through the provided asynchronous module content. Tutors will host a minimum of 3 live, recorded, webinars per Trimester (12 week duration). Tutors will also provide support to students via the Learning Management Systems (LMS) discussion posts, activities and via email communication. Tutors will complete marking of 1st attempt and resubmissions scripts.

    Ideally the suitable candidate would have experience of teaching via online delivery, however this is not essential. This role would also suit an experienced practitioner or professional in the subject field. Experience of online course/module design is also desirable.

    The role would suit someone looking for an additional role/hours or part time work.

    You will have relevant academic qualifications and a minimum of a full postgraduate qualification in the relevant subject area, along with experience of applying skills, methods and techniques in a learning and teaching environment. You will be IT literate, and student focussed with good communication and interpersonal skills. Learning Management Systems (LMS) experience would be desirable, but not essential.

    To be eligible to apply for this role you must be based in and have a Right to Work in the UK.

    Distance Learning Tutors will be home based, hours will be flexible determined by allocated module cohort numbers and credit weighting of the module.

    The hourly rate for delivery is £48.07 (including marking).

    For example, for a 30-credit module based on a cohort of 15 to 18 students, this would be a total of 72 hours.

    Contracted hours are determined in advance of the Trimester and are dependent on student cohort numbers and availability of work. Please note that hours are not guaranteed for a full academic year.

    We are looking to recruit a Distance Learning Tutor to start in September 2024.

    Shortlisting will occur after the week commencing 22nd of July.

    Interview dates are likely to be held during the week commencing 12th of August.

    Please note that future additional work opportunities that Distance Learning Tutors may be involved with are:

  • Module and course development
  • Major project supervision
  • Ad-hoc marking opportunities
  • Please note that these elements are each contracted separately at a set fee and on an as required basis.
