The Royal College of Art is the UK’s only entirely postgraduate art and design university. In 2017/18 the College has some 2,000 students registered for MA, MRes, MPhil and PhD degrees and over 400 full- and part-time academic, technical and administrative staff.

The College is seeking to appoint two EAP Tutors, each working two and a half days per week, to provide innovative and dynamic English for Academic Purposes (EAP) teaching and support for the newly developed Graduate Diploma Art & Design programme.

The Graduate Diploma Art & Design prepares students for Master’s study in Art and Design. The programme focuses on developing proficiency in the discursive languages and independent learning methods and practices of art and design, and on introducing students to the role and influence of art and design in the world today.

The EAP Tutors will be required to deliver relevant and engaging language support to native and non-native students through whole-group teaching, small group sessions and one-to-one tutorials. They will be expected to work with a range of specific academic disciplines and texts/tasks including those addressing challenging philosophical, aesthetic and critical issues. The EAP Tutors will plan and develop creative and engaging lessons and assessment tasks as well as mark assessed work and provide effective feedback.

It is essential that applicants hold an MA in a suitably related field, and hold a postgraduate teaching qualification. Applicants must demonstrate understanding of activities and learning outcomes for postgraduate students in Art and Design disciplines Candidates are required to have experience of teaching postgraduate students and experience of teaching EAP-related provision to both native and non-native students.

The Graduate Diploma launches on 16 July, ideally candidates will be available to start as soon as possible. 

Interviews will take place on 11 July.
