This post represents an opportunity to join the highly successful Early Childhood Studies programme at Bishop Grosseteste University as part of the enthusiastic and dynamic team. We are seeking an excellent and flexible teacher, who can contribute to the undergraduate programme in the subject.

The BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies is an undergraduate degree course which focuses on the educational, social and health care of children from birth to 8 years of age.  The programme supports students in gaining an appreciation of how children think and learn, as well as developing an understanding of how they might facilitate learning through a range of strategies. Students on the course are typically seeking careers in the early years, either as an early year’s educator or in roles which encompass aspects of health and social care, such as social work or play therapy.

The University is on a leafy single-campus site in the historic uphill area of the city. This is some ten minutes’ walk away from the castle and cathedral and a range of other cultural and historical attractions. BGU has been awarded a Gold TEF award for its teaching and learning.
