Ref: INTOQUB-STE-04-19

Post 1. We have an immediate vacancy for:

Subject Teacher (Materials and Manufacturing)

Temporary Part-Time

Duration:     One semester (April 2019 to September 2019)

Post 2. We would also like to invite applications for our:

Subject Teacher Register (Engineering)


INTO is an organisation working in partnership with leading British Universities and investing in the development of world-class international student centres. It specialises in preparing students for undergraduate and postgraduate study in the UK. Our Centres deliver progression onto leading British undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Each INTO Centre is managed by a joint venture management board in which INTO and the partner University are equal shareholders.

INTO Queen’s University Belfast is a joint venture with Queen’s University, Belfast since 2009.


Post 1: The ability to teach a Mechanical Engineering module to international students on the International Year One in Engineering, essential requirements being the delivery of Materials and Manufacturing content.

Post 2:  We are looking to create a Register of suitably qualified and experienced Teachers to teach the subjects listed below at pre-university (Foundation), undergraduate (Diploma) and postgraduate (Graduate Diploma) level.  The Register will normally be held for a period of 12 months.  We use the Register to fill a range of contracts to meet such teaching requirements as may arise during the duration of the Register including; permanent, part time, fixed term (eg. maternity leave or sickness cover) and zero hours (casual). Our contracts vary from full time contracts (100%) to part time/fractional contracts.  Due to variations in teaching load across the academic year, where relevant, we may give consideration to candidates who wish to work less than a 100% contract at less busy periods, in order to meet these changing teaching requirements.

Engineering Register Subject Areas are:

Mechanical Engineering

Aerospace Engineering

Civil Engineering

Electrical Engineering

Chemical Engineering



Experience of teaching at A-level, International Baccalaureate, or at an equivalent level, is particularly sought for academic subject teaching on our Foundation programmes, though it is not essential. Experience of teaching at undergraduate university level, or its equivalent, is particularly sought for academic subject teaching on our Diploma programmes.

For all posts, experience of teaching international students is an advantage but is not essential.
