A core strength of the Department is in the study, support and improvement of pedagogy, curriculum and assessment through multidisciplinary programmes. The Department hosts top-rated initial teacher education programmes, incorporating Secondary PGCE, School Direct and Teach First, innovative Masters programmes and a wide range of continuing professional development courses.

About the role

We are seeking to appoint a Lecturer (Teaching) who will work principally on the Centre’s new educational programme on the Kindertransport. The programme will engage pupils with the personal stories of those involved in, and affected by, the experiences of Kindertransport, including the children’s stories and the perspective of Kindertransport parents. The programme will also provide the opportunity, at an appropriate age-level, to develop deeper knowledge and empathetic understandings of issues related to enforced migration, displacement and separation in contemporary society.

The postholder will help to devise and develop educational materials on the Kindertransport, principally for use with Year 6/7 students. This will include traditional classroom resources and digital material(s). You will play a role in the development and provision of a CPD course or courses to support the delivery of said educational materials. In addition, you will liaise with and draw upon the expertise of primary specialists and Holocaust historians to ensure all aspects of this programme are rigorous, robust and fit for purpose.

This post is on a part-time basis (.40 FTE/ 14.60 hours per week) and is initially funded until 31 August 2026. The post is available immediately, though precise start date can be discussed.
