This is a key role in the Design School/College and this post is seen as a key driver for the development of the course.
The Diploma in Professional Studies (DPS) course is an optional year out in industry between the second and fourth year of an undergraduate course. The DPS offers students the opportunity to undertake up to three placements, secondments or freelance projects, within the year, from an extensive and worldwide list of internationally renowned design studios, advertising agencies, architectural practices, film production houses, publishing houses, media centres etc. Not only do students gain professional industry experience within the international design community but they also involve themselves with international charitable organisations working on and initiating a variety of activities.
You will coordinate and deliver on the Professional Practices unit for the students across the courses and develop new and relevant professional relationships with industry which will benefit student learning.
Supporting the course leader in delivering the content of the course as required, you will develop and deliver disciplined, innovative and engaging, lectures and seminars, contributing significantly to course development and assessment, and providing academic and pastoral support as necessary, monitoring student progress and maintaining appropriate records.
Significant understanding of industrial contexts and placement experience is essential to this role.
