This role currently sits within our Higher Education provision, specifically the FDA and BA Art and Design programme. The Sessional Lecturer will teach a group or groups of full or part time students on specific or parts of courses.

You should have a good 1st Degree in a relevant Art or Design subject, ideally with a postgraduate qualification in a relevant subject, preferably History and/or Theory of Art. We’d also like you to have broad knowledge of both historical and current practices in Art and Design and demonstrate a sound understanding of the relationship between practice and theory.
