Demand the best. From your students – and for yourself. 

Listed in the top 1% of universities worldwide, we’ve got a lot to be proud of at the University of Southampton.  Our successful Pre-sessional English for Academic Purposes programmes are where many international students’ exciting educational journey with us begins, and it is on these programmes that you could join us in a highly fulfilling role. 

We have three different tutor roles available: Reading and Writing, Listening and Speaking, or Academic Skills. 

With ongoing professional support from our coordinating team, tutors adapt and deliver engaging syllabi, focusing on developing students’ reading and writing/ listening and speaking/ general academic skills, and preparing them for postgraduate study at the University. Maintaining the highest standards, you will set and mark assessments, provide one-on-one tutorials with verbal and written feedback, and upload materials to our University Virtual Learning Environment. 

This is an exciting opportunity to put our international community of students on the path to success. You will excel in these roles if you have experience of delivering student-centred EAP/EFL or Academic Skills teaching, supported by a qualification in Language Teaching/ Learning or Education. Excellent interpersonal skills are essential, and you will be a team-player with the ability to thrive under pressure and motivate students. Full Job description/ person specifications for the roles are attached.

Staff benefits include a comprehensive five-day induction, competitive salary, generously subsidised accommodation, access to our desirable pension scheme, plus ‘extras’ such as onsite childcare facilities and subsidised health and fitness facilities.
