Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
This is an opportunity from d'Overbroeck's College in Oxford, looking for an enthusiastic and able graduate to join a flourishing department. The College is happy to receive applications from newly qualified teachers, though a PGCE is not a requirement for this post. The post is part-time and the successful applicant will be expected to work two full days each week of term.
The vacancy has arisen because the College’s principal photography teacher, Elina Medley, is taking maternity leave. She expects to return to work after the Spring half-term. The successful applicant will teach in the Sixth Form at AS and A2 levels.
They are looking for a teacher who has a strong practical understanding and expertise in Photography combined with the strong teaching skills that include an ability to engage and enthuse students. They expect the appointed teacher to offer teaching in both digital and film work. A broad understanding of contemporary photographic practice and theory and the history of photography is expected. The A Level units are all coursework based and while this gives a teacher a high degree of flexibility in planning the courses, it also requires good organizational skills and the ability to work within a team.
They will expect the appointed teacher to organize and accompany students on location trips and gallery visits. Every year they have students going on to BA Photography courses as well as broader Art Foundation courses and admission for these competitive courses demands a high standard of work being produced.
All teachers are expected to contribute to the College’s extra-curricular programme. Applicants should complete the Form entitled Application for a Teaching Post which can be downloaded from the web-site www.doverbroecks.com/posts . The Application Form and Covering Letter should be emailed to HR@doverbroecks.com and the signed copy sent to Heather Bates, FTAO Richard Knowles, Administrative Principal, d'Overbroeck's College, The Swan Building, 111 Banbury Road, Oxford OX2 6JX. The closing date for applications is Monday 16 April 2012.
