This is an opportunity for graduates to share their knowledge and enthusiasm for the study of Media Studies through paid positions writing educational resources that our customers – teachers throughout the UK – will use in their class to teach GCSE and A level Media Studies.

What you will achieve:

  • Published material that will help future learners succeed in their qualifications
  • Experience in publishing and education sectors
  • Develop research and planning skills to a specific project brief
  • Familiarisation of new teaching requirements set by examination boards for GCSE and A level
  • Develop your teaching skills by gaining practise in structuring lessons, communicating theory to students, and covering unit specifications.
  • Opportunity to develop own resource ideas

What we’re looking for:

  • A detailed knowledge of both theoretical and practical Media Studies including degree-level study
  • An ability to adapt and improve methods of working so that any mistakes identified are not repeated!
  • An ability to communicate effectively, concisely – to write with flair and enthusiasm for your subject!

Even without teaching experience, the ideal candidate will be able to apply creative strategies for teachers, taking the content students need to learn and presenting it in an accessible and digestible way.

Two positions are available: both 6-month initial contracts starting ASAP. There is a strong possibility of further publishing opportunities – including writing, checking and/or editorial work.
