Expectations of Teaching Pathway Roles

Teaching specialist roles are wholly or mainly focused on delivering and enhancing the organisation and quality of teaching and consequently improving the student experience and employability.

These webpages seek to clarify how titles can best be used and what the expectations/responsibilities should be of those within a teaching pathway at its various levels.

These webpages intend to:

  • Provide individual members of staff with guidance on the potential scope to develop their career
  • Assist departments in the development of common expectations across the department
  • Support the fair and transparent allocation of workloads

All associated information and guidance can be found in the index below.
