Opportunities at the University of Nottingham in Ningbo China
£380522 to £451939 per annum pro-rata depending on skills and experience. Salary progression beyond this scale is subject to performance.
Join a unique British University in China. The University of Nottingham
Ningbo China (UNNC) was the first Sino-foreign university to open its doors
in China. This award winning campus offering a UK style education has grown to
establish a student body of over 9,000 in just 16 years. We are looking for
qualified and committed Tutors in English for Specific Purposes (ESP) to
join the Centre for English Language Education.
Centre for English Language Education (CELE)
Since the development of the Nottingham-Ningbo campus in 2004, the Centre for
English Language Education (CELE) has aimed to promote high quality teaching
in its structure and support of academic programmes delivered in China. With
over 110 academic staff, the CELE operation at UNNC is now one of the largest
of its kind in the world with an expanding portfolio of courses.
Tutors in English for Specific Purposes are primarily involved in the design
and delivery to external clients of a portfolio of ESP, teacher training and
outreach programmes offered by CELE at the University of Nottingham Ningbo
China (UNNC). These include professional English courses such as Business
English and Medical English, teacher development programmes for in-service
teachers of English, and teaching methodology courses for teachers of all
subjects in bilingual and international schools. In addition to the programmes
offered on campus, tutors will also be involved in the online delivery of
professional development qualifications in Teaching and Learning, Educational
Leadership and Bilingual Education. Outreach programmes may occasionally
necessitate short periods of travel to other areas of China. Tutors will also
participate in the delivery of summer school programmes for high school
students focusing on STEM subjects and IELTS preparation. Dependent on
individual tutors' aptitude and experience, there may be scope for their
involvement in credit-bearing modules for students in the Preliminary Year of
UG study at the university.
Applications are therefore invited from suitably qualified English language
teaching professionals able to offer experience and expertise in one or more
of the following key fields:
Teacher training (experience in the delivery of internationally
recognized qualifications such as CELTA, DELTA and/or teacher training for
Bilingual K-12 schools)
ESP/EAP teaching including online teaching and support through Virtual
Learning Environments (VLEs)
ESP/EAP syllabus and curriculum design
Successful applicants must have a Bachelor's degree and a relevant
postgraduate qualification such as a PGCE, MA TESOL or DELTA. They will
primarily join the team responsible for delivering a portfolio of commercial
programmes including teacher training, and the design and delivery of bespoke
training packages in various aspects of ESP.
Salary will be within the range of RMB 380,522 – RMB 451,939 per annum (pro
rata for fractional post), depending on skills and experience, salary
progression beyond this scale is subject to performance. In addition, an
attractive package including employment support allowance, first arrival
allowance and insurance will be provided for international appointments.
The posts will initially be offered on a fixed term contract for a period of 1
year starting October 2021 (later starts for exceptional candidates may be
negotiated). This contract may be extended on an indefinite basis by mutual
agreement. All posts will be based in Ningbo and contracts will be with the
University of Nottingham Ningbo China.
All applicants are required to formally apply online for the position.
