Teachers- are you passionate about the value of education and inspiring young people? The University of Central Lancashire is looking for your educational expertise, enthusiasm and insight to help develop engaging content to form part of our engagement and access programme.

The University is committed to widening participation in higher education and works to remain open and accessible to everyone regardless of background. Through the engagement and access programme, we run activities with young people from backgrounds underrepresented at university to raise aspirations and improve attitudes towards education and careers. The activities we deliver range from on-campus events, in-school workshops and community-based events.

This is a summer role, which will involve designing and developing content that can be delivered by our engagement team or current undergraduate students.

  • Educational activities that can be delivered in our community outreach space InTheCity (situated in the St Georges Centre, in Preston city centre).
  • Workshops or activities that can be delivered to help aid revision or homework.

Content that is developed can cover any subject area but we are particularly interested in the following subjects: Maths, English, Humanities, Arts and Languages.
