Are you passionate about Computer Science, with an ability to convey computing concepts in a clear and effective way?
At UWE Bristol’s International College, we are looking for a Computer Science specialist who can convey and explain concepts in an effective and stimulating way. As our Computer Science Tutor, you’ll be teaching students who are studying on our International Year One (IYO) programme, with progression into Year 2 of various Computer Science degrees at the University of the West of England. The college teaches Foundation Certificate, preparing students for an undergraduate degree, and Pre-Masters, preparing students for Masters-level study. As such, it would be advantageous if you can teach additional subjects beyond Computer Science. We are looking for you to start in the role in January 2021 and it is anticipated that online interviews will take place in December 2020.
The IYO Computing programme consists of the following modules:
Principles of Computing;
Database Design & Implementation;
Programming in C & C++;
Web Programming; and
An ideal background would be in teaching computing subjects at A-Level, BTEC or in Further Education or Higher Education, with experience of teaching international students and helping them deal with the challenges of degree-level study in the UK.
The students you will be teaching come from China, South East Asia and the Middle East and are largely highly-motivated learners who are very engaged with their subject. You will be following a set Computer Science curriculum designed to prepare students for university-level study and supporting students with the development of an e-portfolio. You will need to be an advocate of using technology to deliver effective teaching and be interested in helping students to become independent learners.
Located in a peaceful campus setting, the UWE Bristol International College is a highly supportive learning environment where we work together to achieve high levels of student success and staff satisfaction in a friendly, informal atmosphere. Our priority is ensuring students feel supported in every way. Whether it’s a listening ear when they’re feeling homesick or practical advice on how to make the best use of their time whilst they are here, our door is always open.
Please apply with CV and cover letter by 4th December 2020. (The role may be closed earlier if a suitable shortlist has been gathered)
