Module Coordinator/Lecturer in Contextual Studies – Contemporary Circus & Physical Performance

£28,500 pro rata (£3600 actual)

5-7 hours weekly

Online Delivery

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an exceptional candidate to join our Academy on a fixed-term basis. We teach aspiring circus and physical theatre students to hone their skills and knowledge in this exciting art form, and are looking for an enthusiastic and committed individual to join the team, to coordinate and deliver a Level 4 (year 1) theory module on the Foundation Degree in Contemporary Circus with Physical Theatre, which is run in partnership with Bath Spa University.

On-going restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic have meant a shift to a blended approach to the delivery of all of our full-time courses from September 2020. This module and all associated lectures, seminars and tutorials will therefore be delivered virtually for the foreseeable future.

The existing module, Context 1, aims to introduce students to contemporary circus and physical performance in a wider historical and socio-political context, and help them to develop the skills in research, critical analysis, reflective and academic writing, which are essential to their development and growth as aspiring performers and artists. The existing weekly structure allows for one lecture or performance viewing and a follow up seminar.

The successful candidate will be passionate about sharing their expertise in Contemporary Circus/Performance and have previous experience in teaching in a higher education setting, and have a sound knowledge of HE quality assurance and assessment procedures.
