Following a review of their Science Foundation Certificate provision, The University of York International Pathway College is now seeking to appoint a Computer Science and Electronics tutor with a track record of success from either a School or University setting. As the successful applicant, you will develop (in collaboration with the Science Area Lead) and teach a new module in which students spend one term learning programming and robotics through the Lego Mindstorms platform and one term focussing on basic electronic circuits (including the use of microprocessors). Although this module is of an approximately A-level standard, the focus will be on a hands-on, problem solving approach and the assessments will be coursework based. As this is a new module, there is considerable flexibility for you to develop the content of the module and the assessments undertaken by the students.
You will have a degree in Computer Science, Electronics or another relevant discipline together with experience of teaching classes of students and preparing them for assessment. You will also have a post-graduate professional teaching qualification in a relevant field (e.g. a PGCE). You will have a strong commitment to supporting your students to achieve highly and you will have well-developed interpersonal skills that will allow you to work with the existing team of Science tutors.
The University of York International Pathway College aims to provide non-EU international students with the language skills and subject knowledge to allow them to progress to and succeed on Undergraduate and Post-graduate courses at the University of York. Academic content, teaching and assessment at the College is managed by the University of York.
The University is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community – a place where we can all be ourselves and succeed on merit. We offer a range of family friendly, inclusive employment policies, flexible working arrangements, staff engagement forums, campus facilities and services to support staff from different backgrounds.
