The Role

At TLG, we’ve had huge uptake in student numbers and this demand had led us to opening a new campus in Ealing (London), which is in addition to our campus at Tower Hill, London. As such, we’re looking for Business Management Lecturers to join our fantastic team in London. We are more than happy to consider different working patterns, including permanent full-time, part-time and hourly paid opportunities to suit individual needs.

The Business Lecturer will work collaboratively to build strong relationships with the key leaders and the staff of The Language Gallery, delivering high-quality teaching demonstrating an overarching understanding of our core modules: Business Management, Organisational Behaviour, Digital Business, Professional Skills, Marketing, and Finance.

The CertHE is pivotal in students' progression to university courses as part of TLG’s widening access and participation commitments. The role focuses on creating holistic approaches to teaching and learning across subjects, ensuring that the experiences delivered engage, retain and progress students. The Lecturer will bring a combination of academic experience, capabilities and personality to engage diverse students with non-traditional backgrounds. They will be passionate about working with students, colleagues, the college and the wider community with a record of successfully progressing students.

The college delivers each blended course as 2 fully intensive days, with one face-to-face on campus and the second live online. Each lecturer will usually be responsible for one or two groups of students representing a part-time or full-time role. Input consists of lectures, workshops, skills lessons, and tutorials. The teaching approach uses best practices from Chunked Experiential Learning Theory, utilising a flipped classroom format with bespoke reflection engagement points, creating opportunities for personalised learning. This personalisation aids student satisfaction, success and engagement, which in turn aids the development of soft skills offering academic progression and/or employability. There is a possibility of running the programme over two evenings in the week and at the weekend. Candidates may have to teach across evenings and weekends, as determined and discussed at the interview and matched against preference, the workload, and the resource allocation and needs of the business. Full-time staff members are expected to teach to the full teaching load on the CertHE.

Lecturers will have a Master's or PhD in a related area with evidence of experience and interest in lecturing. All lecturers are expected to develop and share teaching and learning materials with all associated assessments and teach students in the areas of Business at Level 4. They are expected to convene modules, teach in a variety of settings (including on-campus and online, both in large groups and in seminars), create and mark assessments, provide tutorials and independent study supervision, and fulfil other Lecturer and School responsibilities, including administration, recruitment, and marketing. It is expected that lecturers will be able to teach all core modules at this level. The candidate will demonstrate how their experience and expertise can translate into teaching, curriculum development and programme development.

Familiarity with online virtual environments (CANVAS) is desirable, but appropriate training is provided. Lecturers will need to develop and share content, teach, engage students, and help to broaden awareness of and capability amongst other business lecturers as appropriate.

All lecturers need to work flexibly as part of a team, develop teaching and learning strategies, and contribute to academic quality by pursuing excellence in teaching. All must demonstrate evidence of how they have contributed to a working team, contributing to quality improvement, and how their personality and approach to work benefit those around them. In this role, they will be expected to demonstrate a commitment towards developing their professional practice and contributing to the development of the practice of colleagues. TLG will be supportive of staff development towards these CPD objectives.

The post holder will participate in team meetings, and any training required and work with a hands-on approach to ensure, together with the other Team Members, the administration of TLG HE is smooth and fully compliant.

We are looking for individuals who are progressive, forward-thinking and engage in innovative teaching methods. You will be able to combine traditional classroom teaching with digital tools to engage our diverse range of student in their learning journey!
