Call for Teaching Assistants 2012-2013

Teaching Assistants 2012-13


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 2012-13.

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 15 June 2012. 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 future opportunities. The School will contact successful applicants with details of module teaching being offered. Those who are not selected for teaching assistance in 2012-13, 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.

Those who are offered teaching opportunities will be expected to undertake a short training course. Modules for which teaching assistance may be required include:
