Job description

Faculty of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (HASS)

The School of Education (SoE)

This part time (0.8 FTE), one year fixed term post is available from 1st September 2024.

Summary of the role

SoE is one of the UK's leading centres for educational research and teaching. In the REF 2021 100 percent of our Education research was rated as internationally excellent in terms of impact. With a large and innovative portfolio of national and internationally focused postgraduate taught and research programmes, it is extremely well placed to thrive over the coming years. A 2023 OFSTED inspection re-affirmed GSE's status as an ‘outstanding' and ‘good' provider of initial teacher education and training and it is currently enacting ambitious plans for the development of both its research and teaching programmes. We welcome colleagues who seek to promote and maintain a collegial working atmosphere and academically stimulating environment that will be attractive to and supportive of fellow academic and professional service staff and research students.

The role

You will support the design, delivery and production of teaching and learning material for a range of core postgraduate modules within our MA Education programmes. You will work with Associate Professor Annabel Watson (SoE Director of Education and Student Experience) and relevant programme leads to ensure the efficient and effective delivery of a number of online and campus postgraduate teaching programmes in accord with the Faculty's education strategy.

About you

You will:

  • Possess sufficient breadth or depth of specialist and core knowledge in the discipline (in Education Policy, the Sociology of Education or Education Leadership and Management), demonstrated by a PhD (or nearing completion) or equivalent to develop teaching programmes, and teach and support learning
  • Use a range of delivery techniques to enthuse and engage students
  • Participate in and develop external networks, for example, to contribute to student recruitment, secure student placements, facilitate outreach work, generate income, obtain consultancy projects, or build relationships for future activities
  • Will have evidence of excellent teaching identified by peer review and have made an impact at discipline programme level beyond their own teaching
  • Be expected to work towards Fellow of the HEA status and to attend formal CPD relating to this
  • Please ensure you read the Job Description and Person Specification for full details of this role.

    What we can offer you:

  • Freedom (and the support) to pursue your intellectual interests and to work creatively across disciplines
  • Support teams that understand the University wide teaching goals and partner with our academics accordingly
  • An Innovation, Impact and Business directorate that works closely with our academics providing specialist support for external engagement and development

  • Our Exeter Academic initiative supports high performing academics to achieve their potential and develop their career

  • A multitude of staff benefits including sector leading benefits around maternity, adoption and shared parental leave (up to 26 weeks full pay), Paternity leave (up to 6 weeks full pay), and a Fertility Treatment Policy

  • A beautiful campus set in the heart of stunning Devon/Cornwall

  • The University of Exeter

    We are a member of the prestigious Russell Group of research-intensive universities and in the top 200 universities in the world (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2024 and QS World University Ranking 2024). We combine world-class teaching with world-class research, achieving a Gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework Award 2023, underpinned by Gold ratings for Student Experience and Student Outcomes.

    Our world-leading research impact has grown more than any other Russell Group university in recent years, and we are home to some of the world's most influential researchers, seeking to answer some of the most fundamental issues facing humankind today. More than 99 percent of our research is of international quality and 47 percent is world-leading (2021 Research Excellence Framework).

    We encourage proactive engagement with industry, business and community partners to enhance the impact of research and education and improve the employability of our students. Read about our world leading research – Green Futures and how we are transforming education for a changing world. We are located in a beautiful part of the country and Exeter (a fast growing tech hub) is one of only a few UK cities to have been designated as a UNESCO Creative City

    Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Commitment

    We are committed to ensuring reasonable adjustments are available for interviews and workplaces.

    Whilst all applicants will be judged on merit alone, we particularly welcome applications from groups currently underrepresented within our working community.

    With over 30,000 students and 7,000 staff from 150 different countries we offer a diverse and engaging environment where our diversity is celebrated and valued as a major strength. We are committed to creating an inclusive culture where all members of our community are supported to thrive; where diverse voices are heard through our engagement with evidence-based charter frameworks for gender (Athena SWAN and Project Juno for Physics), race equality (Race Equality Charter Mark), LGBTQ+ inclusion (Stonewall Diversity Champion) and as a Disability Confident employer.

    We are proud signatories of the Armed Forces Covenant and welcome applications from service people.
