Job Description

Are you ready to join an enthusiastic and motivated teaching team? Do you have a passion for applied and practical teaching and learning? Do you have expertise in the areas of sport development, education and leadership and management? 

The LEED module programme is part of the University of Leeds “Discovery Module” approach. Discovery modules reinforce the value and interest of home degrees by offering students the opportunity to broaden their learning and pursue their own personal interests, while developing skills that will help prepare them for life after university.

The LEED module programme delivers a range of different modules across three themes: Teaching and Coaching, Sport and Personal Development and Outdoor Adventure. The modules are designed to be interactive, engaging and focus on practical application of learning.

As a Teaching Fellow in LEED Discovery Modules you will take responsibility for several sport related modules including Sport Development, Event Management and Teaching and Coaching. These will include undergraduate level students from across the university. You will cover preparation, student support and marking as well as delivery of the modules. You will also take on a lead role in the planning of the programme working with our colleagues in Sport and Exercise Science within the Faculty of Biological Sciences.

With a undergraduate degree in sport or education you will have extensive professional experience in the areas of sport, education and management and will have experience of developing and delivering teaching.   As this is a busy role you will have good time management and planning skills, with a proven ability to manage competing demands effectively.
