This post holder will deliver inspiring and challenging teaching to all three years of Print and Time Based Media students, through a variety of teaching methods such as lecturers, seminars, group and 1:1 tutorials, visits to galleries and museums and other locations of interest. As well as this, you will provide occasional delivery to other Fine Art students.

The post holder will take on the responsibility of Unit Leader, undertaking the associated administration and quality assurance related to the delivery of specified unit(s)

The student experience is at the heart of what we do, and your ideas and vision for the development and delivery of the contextual practice curriculum will be routed in the student experience. Within the Fine Art Programme ethos at Wimbledon, the contextual practice element is seen as an integral part of the development of students’ fine art studio practice.

The role will require close and productive working relationships with other contextual practice staff, the Print and Time Based Media Pathway Leader and other subject staff to ensure subject relevance and currency. You will contribute to the development of a new ‘Inspiration and Insights’ contextual practice strand which will enhance and underpin the Wimbledon vision statement.
