The successful applicant will contribute to the teaching and learning of students within ONCAMPUS with the ultimate goal of securing success for all students to progress onto their chosen degree course at the partner university. The following outline of roles and responsibilities may be adjusted according to the needs of the centre. The post is dependent on student recruitment and the hours of teaching can range between 5 – 20 hours per week dependent on timetabling and tutor flexibility.
- assess students’ progress accurately using, as relevant, assessment objectives, band descriptors and grade descriptors from Awarding Bodies and National Frameworks;
- identify and support more able students, those who are working below expectations, those who are failing to achieve their potential in learning, and those who experience behavioural, emotional and social difficulties;
- with the help of the EFL department, identify the levels of attainment of students learning English as an additional language. They begin to analyse the language demands and learning activities in order to provide cognitive challenge as well as language support;
- record students’ progress and achievements systematically to provide evidence of the range of their work, progress and attainment over time. They use this to help students review their own progress and to inform planning in line with the Personal Progress Plans;
- use records as a basis for reporting on students’ attainment and progress orally and in writing, concisely, informatively and accurately for Centre Management, parents and students.
Tutors will be expected to teach their specialist subject(s) competently and independently using the relevant specification and ONCAMPUS’ Schemes of Work, and to teach clearly structured lessons or sequences of work which interest and motivate students. Such lessons should:
- make learning objectives and the relevance to examination criteria clear to students
- employ interactive teaching methods and collaborative group work
- promote active and independent learning that enables students to think for themselves, and to plan and manage their own learning.
