The University Centre Colchester is looking for a dedicated and dynamic programme leader and tutor in music on our BA Popular Music and BA Performance and Teaching degrees. The role involves delivering lectures and workshop-based sessions, supervising students, preparing appropriate teaching materials and engaging in subject-specific research or knowledge transfer.
You will have a background in music education, either classroom or peripatetic-based, and be a practical musician with a track record of live and/or studio performance and ability to teach music theory and performance skills. You will be someone who can effectively collaborate with your peers, motivate and inspire students, assess their work, offer feedback and maintain records as appropriate. Your understanding of the music business as it is today enables you to guide and mentor students in how to begin their careers in this sector.
Appropriately qualified, you will have an undergraduate degree in the relevant subject, be able to evidence further postgraduate training, and/or equivalent experience, and demonstrate analytical ability and pedagogical interests as applicable to working in Higher Education. Though clearly a subject specialist in degree-level education, the breadth of your educational background includes GCSEs at grades 9-4 (or equivalent), and A levels (or equivalent). You enjoy working for and with people, which has shaped your identity as a professional and your approach to your work.
