The University of York International Pathway College (IPC) seeks to appoint two English Language Teaching professionals. Initially, one will take a leading role in setting up and developing new Pre-Sessional Programmes, and the other will focus on language and study skills modules of the Foundation Programme. 

You will act, in the first instance, as a programme co-ordinator in Language and Study Skills for the Pre-Sessional or Foundation Programme. Initially reporting to the Programme Leader, with whom you will cooperate in planning programme content and organisation, you will also work closely with programme tutors to ensure effective course delivery. Your responsibilities will include materials and assessment development, coordinating teams of tutors, and the setting and marking of assignments, in addition to teaching classes and conducting tutorials. You will also be expected to contribute to other courses within the IPC, such as the Pre-Masters. 

Programme Information:

The Pre-Sessional Programmes have been very popular and shown strong growth. You will help to develop new courses for 2019, and it is expected that student numbers will continue to grow once they are implemented. Students attend programmes of varying length with the intention of progressing onto a wide variety of undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses at the University of York.

The Foundation Programme is currently being redeveloped to place a larger focus on content and language integrated learning across the modules it offers. Our students come from around the world and study on either a two or three-term course studying language and study skills alongside content modules in an area they intend to progress onto for undergraduate study.


You will have a relevant Teaching Diploma, e.g.  Cambridge ESOL DELTA, Trinity Dip TESOL or a PGCE with post 16 ELT specialism and an Undergraduate degree or equivalent.

Knowledge and Skills:

You will have detailed knowledge of ELT within the context of English for Academic Purposes and Higher Education. You will have an understanding of approaches to assessment and evaluation as well as knowledge of the principles and practice of implementing and developing technology enhanced learning. You will have experience of supporting others in their teaching and demonstrate excellent team working abilities. You will have the ability to supervise the work of students, provide advice on study skills and assist with learning problems as well as a proven ability in syllabus and materials development in ELT and in assessment design. You will also have the ability to set and mark assessments and provide appropriate feedback to students and the ability to plan and deliver learning in a virtual or electronic environment.

For the Foundation Coordinator, an interest in content and language integrated learning related to Business or Social Sciences would be an asset
