Part-time Course Tutor in Politics - Closing Date: Monday, 09 November 2015

last modified Oct 20, 2015 01:52 PM

The University of Cambridge’s Institute of Continuing Education (ICE), based at Madingley Hall, offers a vibrant and diverse array of courses for personal enrichment and academic and professional development. Courses range from non-award-bearing courses, many of which are open-access, to innovative part-time Master of Studies (MSt) degrees.

We are currently looking to engage a Tutor in Politics to assist with the development and teaching of the Undergraduate Certificate in Social Sciences. The course comprises three taught termly units (Sociology, Politics and Psychology), taught over 12 day-schools (four per termly unit), and will be delivered to part-time students. The course commenced in October 2015 with the Sociology unit. The Tutor in Politics, who will be taken on to ICE’s Panel of Tutors, will contribute to the development of the course with immediate effect and will teach and assess the second termly unit (January-April 2016).

The Tutor in Politics will be responsible for developing and delivering a unit providing a general introduction to the concepts, methodologies and theories of political science. Additionally, the unit in Politics will explore one example of a political institution and/or process in modern society; a contemporary debate and/or issue in international relations; and an issue in comparative politics. The precise selection and focus of themes will reflect the subject expertise of the Tutor.

Applicants should be educated to at least Master’s level, ideally with experience of teaching part-time adult students. We anticipate engaging Tutors who live within travelling distance of Cambridge, are able (once trained) to provide guidance to students using the Institute’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and are willing to familiarise themselves with the procedures and policies of ICE.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to the Course Director, Dr Nigel Kettley: nck20@cam.ac.uk

To apply, please submit a cover letter and CV with the contact details of two referees to: ug-awards@ice.cam.ac.uk

Interviews will take place either on 26 November or 1 December 2015.

Closing date: Monday, 09 November 2015
