About the role

The University has embarked on an exciting series of programme initiatives with a range of College of Science and Engineering (CSE) Bachelor degree programmes in China (PRC).

The partnership between the University of Leicester and Dalian University of Technology (DUT) gained formal PRC Ministry of Education approval in March 2017 to establish the Leicester International Institute, Dalian University of Technology.

This Collaborative Education Institute, abbreviated name: the Dalian Leicester Institute (DLI), recruited its first cohort of students in September 2017 to two 4+0 degree programmes: BSc Chemistry and BEng (Mechanical).  BSc Mathematics was added in 2019. Eventually the total steady-state student population of the DLI will be approaching 1200.

The courses are taught in English by academic staff from the UK and PRC, integrating an intensive English Language course within the first year of each four-year degree for DLI enrolled students.  The Students will graduate with two degrees: one each from the University of Leicester and Dalian University of Technology.  Typically, the University of Leicester is responsible for providing all lecture and course material for the core curriculum, the English language modules and teaching 50% of the modules for each programme.

As an EAP tutor, you will be responsible for delivering the English language modules to first year students at the DLI. At the time of writing, these may be delivered online from the UK or face-to-face in China depending on FCO travel advice and the Covid-19 situation.


About you
You will hold a recognised TEFLI qualification, such as CELTA or the equivalent, with substantial experience EFL. You will also have experience of teaching on pre-sessional or in-sessional EAP courses in a university context.
We look forward to receiving your application.
