All our teachers will receive a competitive salary, annual leave entitlement and the option of city-centre accommodation.

A competitive salary offer, including holiday pay:

  • 11wks (PS10): £8,688.28 (including induction & holiday pay). This is equivalent to an annual salary of £36,646 pro rata.

Candidates for these posts are required to have a minimum of a first degree and a DELTA (or equivalent), or a Masters in a relevant subject and previous experience of teaching on Pre-sessional courses. In return for your effort and commitment on what is a very intensive course, we hope to provide a supportive and collaborative environment where you will continue to develop as an EAP practitioner.

The Centre is run on the principles of collaboration, development, transparency, transferability, autonomy and reflexivity at all levels within our community. For those who are interested in the BALEAP fellowship scheme, we have TEAP assessors in-house to carry out observations for your TEAP portfolio.
