The Centre for English Language Education (CELE) is now seeking exceptional candidates to join us as Course Tutors in English for Academic Purposes (EAP).

About Centre for English Language Education (CELE)

Since the development of the Nottingham Ningbo campus in 2004, the Centre for English Language Education (CELE) has aimed to promote high-quality EAP teaching in its structure and support of academic programmes delivered in China. With over 110 academic staff, the CELE operation at UNNC is now one of the largest of its kind in the world and is currently supporting students on UNNC Preliminary Year modules, presessionals, summer schools and in-sessional language and academic skills support programmes.

Applications are therefore invited from suitably qualified English language teaching professionals able to offer experience and expertise in one or more of the following key fields:

  • EAP/ESP teaching, including online teaching and support through Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs)
  • EAP/ESP syllabus and curriculum design
  • EAP/ESP assessment
  • Teacher training (experience in the delivery of internationally recognized qualifications such as CELTA, DELTA and their equivalents preferred)

About You

The successful applicant must have a Master’s degree in TESOL/Applied Linguistics (or similar postgraduate equivalent teaching qualification) with English as a first language (or equivalent competence). University foundation-level preparation and teaching experience, where the medium of study is English, is an advantage.
