Programme Information:

The programmes have been recently redeveloped to place a larger focus on integrating the Science and Language content.


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. As you will be working with students who are enrolled to scientific programmes, an undergraduate (or higher) qualification in science would be useful.

You will have a detailed specialist knowledge of teaching English for Specific Academic Purposes within scientific fields. This knowledge could have come from your previous experience of teaching on science specific language courses or from your experience of general ELT together with your degree in a scientific discipline. You will be able to use this experience to provide science specific advice and guidance to language and study skills colleagues and to suggest future developments of the Science Language modules. 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.
