Lecturer in Computing and IT     

Manchester Campus  - Zero hour contract 

About our role: As Lecturer you will be responsible for the student progress and academic achievement. Of particular interest are experienced lecturers across levels 4 to 7 in Computing & IT.   

Your focus: As a Lecturer with our HE Business School you will have the ability to:            

Plan, prepare, teach/deliver modules and support student’s learning on a range of programmes and related subject areas

Provide guidance, support and tutorship for student groups and individuals as appropriate.

Meet partnership and internal quality assurance processes in relation to programmes

Develop and grow relationships with partnership organisations.

Carry out academic administration duties as required

Maintain personal and professional development in line with agreed appraisal and development programme in order to enhance personal knowledge and contribution to relevant activities. 

Bring your experience: Applicants should have suitable and relative teaching experience and should hold a Masters, MBA or higher degree in a relevant subject area. PhD holders with current publications are welcomed. A teaching qualification and membership of the HEA would be advantageous.

Our Company: At QAHE you will be surrounded by staff who love teaching and prioritise the student experience. We specialise in teaching as our main focus and ensuring a good experience for the learner is the number one priority for the team.

Perhaps the most significant difference visible on campus is that traditional universities tend to be quite empty (of academic staff) as lecturers spend much less time in the office. There is a friendly and supportive atmosphere here at QAHE with typically far more team-working, promoted in part by more regular staff attendance on campus and in the staff offices.

Some potential candidates will find this, and the emphasis on teaching rather than research, very attractive. Academic staff in traditional universities of all ranks are placed under significant demand for research outputs and so have to balance a teaching load and the associated administration with their research obligations. To some this feels like an impossible burden (particularly when expectations around consultancy are added).

The management hierarchy at QAHE (year heads, deputy course managers and so on) creates opportunities for course management and career progression at QAHE and these types of responsibilities are genuinely devolved in a way that is typically uncommon in other HEIs.
