Situated in excellent facilities at our Falmer site, just five miles from Brighton’s stunning sea front and vibrant city centre, the School of Education is one of the largest providers of education and training for student teachers, teachers and other professionals in the higher education sector. Rated outstanding by Ofsted in our latest inspection (November 2018) for our early years, primary and secondary provision, we are ranked in the top 15 for education courses in the UK in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021. The School of Education has consistently gained very strong feedback from our student body with 88% overall satisfaction in the 2021 National Student Survey results, 13 percentage points above the UK average.

With our commitment to the highest expectations and standards in education and research we enjoy a regional, national and international reputation for the quality of our provision. Promoting creativity and innovation, and embracing the principles of equality and inclusion, we are consistently successful in meeting new market demands and government initiatives at both a local and national level. Programmes with the school focus predominantly on education, learning and development.

You will be joining a successful and dynamic team of educationalists who, through a continued commitment to teaching and research excellence, strive to maximise students’ potential as future teachers of their subject. We are therefore seeking to appoint a highly motivated, innovative and effective practitioner who is keen to promote primary history across the school and beyond. You should be able to demonstrate a passion for teaching and students’ learning, and be able to offer a clear rationale for your pedagogy.

The successful candidate will be responsible for enthusing and inspiring students on our BA (Hons) Early Childhood Education and Care and BA (Hons) Education courses.  You will also be expected to contribute to modules across these two courses as well as take on pastoral work as a personal academic tutor for groups of students.  Dependent upon the grade at which you are appointed, you will also be expected to take on co-ordination and management / leadership roles within the School. 

You will possess a good (normally a 1st or 2:1) undergraduate degree, preferably in history or a related area, hold a relevant professional qualification and a relevant postgraduate qualification (PGCE/EYITT/PGCert/MA/PhD), an equivalent level of professional experience or evidence of a commitment to obtaining a relevant higher degree/professional qualification. Ideally, the appointed candidate will have an established or emerging research and / or knowledge exchange profile, including publications in peer reviewed journals in education.

Depending on individual profile you will contribute to a variety of undergraduate, postgraduate and work-related programmes.  Programmes are delivered across the full calendar year and can involve some work on evenings and Saturdays.  You will be expected to travel to partner settings supporting students’ professional learning in collaboration with a range of professionals from these placements.

The University of Brighton ITE Partnership is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.  Due to the nature of this post a DBS check will be required.

This is a full-time role, starting on 01/09/22. Job-sharers are welcome to apply.
