Part-time Latin Instructor (125067)
University of Oxford
Application deadline: 12th September 2016
Thanks to a generous donation from the Stonehouse Educational Foundation, the University of Oxford’s Classics Faculty has reinstated its Saturday Latin teaching scheme, OXLAT, and now seeks a part-time Latin Instructor. The appointment will be for a fixed-term period from 1 October 2016 to 31 July 2017. The scheme, which started in January 2015 and runs for two and a half years, offers free tuition on Saturday mornings to 30 students from local state schools. Two instructors are responsible for the teaching for the duration of the scheme, from preliminary introductory work through to comprehensive preparation for GCSE exams.
The instructors report to the Outreach Officer. They also work closely with the part-time Latin Teaching Scheme Coordinator, who provides administrative support and will be present on Saturday mornings to oversee the scheme’s delivery.
The key duties are: teaching weekly two-hour Latin lessons on Saturday mornings during term time over the course of the scheme; two hours of contact teaching time each week for a total of 38 weeks; and approximately four hours of teaching preparation time/liaising with the OXLAT Coordinator each week.
The successful candidate will have proven skills and experience equivalent to those derived from holding a degree in Classics; have experience of teaching in a school environment; have experience of teaching Latin to GCSE level; have enthusiasm for the subject and the desire and ability to effectively engage and motivate students; have a desire and ability to challenge able students as well as to support, encourage, and develop less-able students; and have a proactive, flexible approach to providing comprehensive and high-quality, yet enjoyable, Latin teaching.
