Summer Art Teaching in Cambridge
Deadline: Mon 15 Jan 2018
Oxbridge Academic Programs invite applications from innovative, motivated teachers in the arts (subjects include creative writing and screenwriting) for The Cambridge Tradition and The Cambridge Prep, their well-established (est. 1995), academically rigorous summer programs held in Jesus College and Peterhouse during July. .

Each faculty member teaches Major and Minor classes in a subject. Major classes run from 9.00am until lunchtime each day, including Saturdays. Minor classes run for two hours three afternoons a week. These are separate classes – the Major is a relatively in-depth study of the subject while the Minor is a series of highlights that act as a 'taster'.

The emphasis is on having fun in a creative and academic context and engaging the students – so classes include short breaks, activities and debates, time for independent study and to make work in studio, short walking tours and local trips to sites of curricular interest. It's not about cramming students' heads, but indulging their enjoyment of learning and the arts. Teachers have significant freedom to design their own course, teaching to their own enthusiasms and areas of expertise, with the aim of inspiring and enthusing students for the subject.

Arts and Workshop Courses include:
• Creative Writing
• Drama
• Filmmaking
• Journalism
• Screenwriting

Employment Dates: July 5 to August 5, 2018 (full time during these dates - contract position) Salary: £2,200+ (1 month of teaching)

Applicants should be graduates and have the character and enthusiasm to inspire their students and make the month an unforgettable, inspiring experience.

To apply, email a CV and a brief cover letter to: Justin Bangs, Associate Director of Faculty at Candidates should identify in the cover letter the course or courses in which they are interested. Examples of the teacher's own work or lessons with students are welcome, though not required.

The application closing date is 15 January 2018.
