It is essential that you submit a covering letter and your preference for either a full or part time position.
Conditions of employment are excellent with generous pension contributions, holiday entitlements, and training opportunities.
CILEx Law School (CLS) often has opportunities for freelance tutors for our CILEx subjects as well as out customised training courses. The role involves marking and providing feedback on students’ assignments electronically. Senior tutors can also become involved in writing and updating the materials we use to deliver courses to our students. Those with lecturing experience may be interested in our series of face-to-face revision days and online webinar tutoring.
As a tutor, it is essential that you have the following:
- A law qualification to degree level, which includes Graduate Membership of CILEx
- Experience of marking
- Up-to-date legal knowledge of the law subjects that you mark
- Excellent written communication skills
- Computer literacy
A teaching qualification in further or higher education is desirable, although applicants without such a qualification but with teaching and/or training experience will still be considered. We would particularly welcome applications from current legal practitioners with some teaching or training experience.
We agree a workload to suit the circumstances of individual tutors so that this role can be performed around other work and/or domestic commitments.
You will be provided with all relevant course materials and tutor mark schemes. You will also receive a copy of the CILEx Journal. Our Academic Team will also provide you with ongoing support.
These programmes are similar to the Intermediate Apprenticeship in Legal Administration but do not require workplace visits.
