Aston University’s mission is to be one of the UK’s leading universities for students aspiring to succeed in business and the professions, where original research, enterprise and inspiring learning and teaching deliver local and global impact. The University has long-standing strengths in graduate outcomes and the delivery of high quality, research-informed teaching; together with a strong commitment to reducing the BAME attainment gap and enabling all learners to achieve their full academic potential.  

We are seeking an experienced and enthusiastic English for Academic Purposes Teaching Fellow who will contribute to the activities of the Centre for English Language and Communication at Aston (CELCA) through high quality, inspirational teaching, curriculum and materials design, and through co-ordinating some of the Centre’s provision. Based in the Education Team, CELCA plays a central role at the University by providing tuition and support in English language, academic skills and communication skills to Aston’s diverse student population. We also work with Aston staff and stakeholders by sharing our expertise in English language, teaching international students, intercultural awareness and communicative competence. You will join an experienced, committed and supportive team who put students in the centre of what they do and pride themselves on providing transformational opportunities to students and colleagues. 

You should be a graduate with a CELTA/PGCE or equivalent, hold a relevant Master’s degree, and have substantial experience in teaching English for Academic Purposes in a Higher Education context. Experience of teaching UK students, working with international students on developing their employability skills or delivering CPD to university staff will be an advantage. You will value team work but will also be adept at working independently at your own initiative. You will be pro-active, adaptable and comfortable managing your workload through prioritising. You will have an excellent standard of written and spoken English.  

The successful candidate will be required to be present on campus for the main part of their working week, but will also benefit from the University's dynamic working policy.

For an informal discussion or any queries about the role, please contact Ania Bailey, Head of Centre for English Language and Communication, at or by telephone on 0121 204 3811.
