As part of significant growth and major investment in the Fashion area in the Westminster School of Arts (WSA), we are seeking a Lecturer in Digital Fashion Design and Portfolio to work mainly at undergraduate level on our successful BA Fashion Design degree, as well as undertake some postgraduate teaching. In particular, this post requires someone with a background in fashion design, fashion illustration and garment construction. Ideally, they would also have expertise in the use of digital layout in teaching portfolio and illustration across all year groups. Fashion is a highly regarded and high performing area within the School, rated as one of the top 10 Fashion Schools in the world and within the top three in the UK. As such, this is a tremendous opportunity for the right person to be part of our ambitious offering at a point where demand for our courses is expanding, and our capacity is growing.
You must have practical experience with fashion design work, with a professional and academic profile commensurate with the current stage of your career. You will be able to demonstrate a commitment to sustained continuous professional and academic development, and nurture and maintain links with the fashion industry to strengthen teaching programmes, research and associated activities. You will have experience in developing, designing and delivering teaching and student-centred learning, with a knowledge of industry practice, engagement in current debates, familiarisation with standards and regulations, and an awareness of diversity and ethical issues as they relate to fashion businesses and their management.
You are also expected to hold a post-graduate or professional qualification, with a view to developing your research. A Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy or a PG Cert HE would also be an advantage, and the successful candidate will be expected to achieve this status within their first year in the post if they have not already done so.
