Duties will include teaching face-to-face and online, setting assessment, marking, and giving feedback, supervision of final year and post-graduate projects, and acting as a personal tutor to provide pastoral support to students. As part of the role, you will be expected to support students for competitions, work based learning and other opportunities for enterprise.

Furthermore, you will also be expected to contribute to School strategic subject based, professional or pedagogic research and development, and other scholarly activities in order to support your teaching.
