NCUK is recruiting experienced academic staff to develop syllabuses and assessments starting December 2018 (with work to be completed by Feb 2019). We offer competitive fees and a high level of flexibility to allow you to balance this with your existing commitments.

NCUK is unique in higher education. We are a consortium of leading universities dedicated to giving international students guaranteed access to universities worldwide and helping them succeed when they get there. Our qualifications are recognised by our owner universities and by universities internationally, and, far more than other qualifications, they prepare students to hit the ground running.

As a Syllabus Developer, you will develop a syllabus and exemplar assessments (with mark schemes) for a module in Civil Engineering, for use on a UK Level 4 qualification. You will be excellent at delivering to deadlines, experienced in teaching, writing syllabuses and examining students in the subject at this level (FHEQ 4), and ideally hold a teaching qualification.

We are currently recruiting Syllabus Developers for the following modules:

  • Geotechnics
  • Civil Engineering Materials
  • Surveying
  • Structural & Stress Analysis
  • Management & Sustainability in Engineering

Payment is made based upon a fee that will be agreed prior to work starting.
