School of Creative Arts Teaching Assistants 2014-15

School of Creative Arts Teaching Assistants 2014-15

The School of Creative Arts wishes to engage the services of a number of Teaching Assistants to help in the delivery of modules on the BA Film, BA Drama, BMus and BSc Music Technology and Sonic Arts pathways during the academic year 2014-15.

The minimum requirement for someone wishing to act as a Teaching Assistant is a second-class undergraduate degree in the relevant subject (or equivalent) and previous experience of undergraduate teaching in that subject is desirable. If you wish to be considered for this opportunity then please complete the application form and return it to the School of Creative Arts by 5.00pm on 04 July 2014. Late applications will not be accepted. Those who have previously acted as Teaching Assistants in the School must also complete and return the form if they wish to be considered for opportunities in the academic year 2014-15.

The School will contact successful applicants with details of module teaching being offered. Those who are not selected for teaching assistance in 2014-15, but who meet the minimum requirement, will have their forms retained should future opportunities arise. Those who do not meet the minimum requirement will be informed that they cannot be considered for any opportunities. Please note that in the allocation of teaching assistance duties, priority may be given to full-time PhD students in the School who are entering the second year of their studies.

Teaching Assistants will be paid at the rate of £34 per hour: this hourly rate includes marking support, where required. Those who are offered teaching opportunities will be expected to undertake a short training course in October 2014.
