Role Description


The International Pathway College (IPC) provides new routes for non-European Union students to access the transformational higher education programmes of the University of York. The IPC offers high quality programmes designed, academically led, taught and managed by the University of York. The college had in excess of 300 full-time students in 2018-19, with greater numbers expected in the future. This is an exciting opportunity for an outstanding candidate to support the IPC at this important stage in its development.


The International Pathway College seeks to appoint an Associate Lecturer to take a lead in supporting students who are finding difficulty with the mathematical content of their courses.  The successful candidate will work closely with module teachers across the range of our programmes (business, humanities, economics and science) and with the students themselves to identify areas of mathematical weakness.   The post holder will spend a large proportion of their time developing individualised learning plans and delivering basic mathematics teaching (often at GCSE or lower level) to students either on an individual basis or in small groups.  An essential part of the role is to be able to understand the difficulties of struggling students and to be able to work with them to find solutions to the issues.  The successful candidate may also be asked to deliver teaching on existing mathematics or statistics modules. 

Skills, Experience & Qualifications needed

  • Undergraduate or postgraduate degree in Mathematics/ Statistics or a related subject.
  • Appropriate postgraduate teaching qualification (e.g. PGCE)
  • Experience of supporting struggling students with mathematics from a school, college or university setting.
  • An ability to build rapport with students

Condition of appointment

  • This role is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act. Consequently, all applicants will be asked to declare both unspent and spent convictions on their application form
  • Appointment of the successful candidate will be conditional on a Disclosure and Barring Service check

Interview date: week commencing 10 February 2020
