Financial management and Financial Forecasting, delivered on Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship (CMDA)

We have an opening for a Distance Learning Tutor to deliver the module Financial Management and Financial Forecasting, via blended learning on our Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship (CMDA) course.

Tutors, will deliver face to face teaching over 3 days on campus, as well as host a minimum of 3 live, recorded, webinars per Trimester (12 week duration). Tutors will also provide support to students via the Learning Management Systems (LMS) discussion posts, activities and via email communication. Tutors will complete marking of 1st attempt and resubmissions scripts.

The suitable candidate will have experience of teaching, ideally including via online delivery, however this is not essential.

The module sits within our Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship (CMDA) course, and the tutor will need to understand how the CMDA Standard integrates to the module (supported by the course team). As such experience of delivering on apprenticeship courses is desirable. Knowledge / experience of the teaching of finance to non-finance students and online course design is desirable.

The role will be home based, but travel to campus in Chelmsford will be required for the campus delivery – travel expenses will be covered. Hours for campus teaching will be paid based on actual hours on campus, hours for the online delivery will be flexible determined by allocated module cohort numbers and credit weighting of the module.

For example, for a 30 credit module based on a cohort of 15 to 18 students, this would be a total of 72 hours, plus 24 hours for 3 days delivery on campus.

Contracted hours are determined in advance of the Trimester and are dependent on student cohort numbers and availability of work. Please note that hours are not guaranteed for a full academic year.
