The opportunity

We run courses in a wide range of subjects, from general interest to one-day taster courses, through to Advanced Level - depending upon demand. Courses do not lead to accreditation, and the preparation of the coursework is the responsibility of the tutor.

We are developing programmes of learning which mix home study and online learning with support workshops. We are seeking tutors who have innovative and creative approaches to teaching their subject specialism.
