Working individually and as a member of a team you will be expected to deliver teaching within a variety of settings including workshops, individual tutorials, seminars, and lectures with a large audience.

The successful candidate will have a degree in a relevant subject, be able to demonstrate extensive specialist fine art skills and support critical thinking, writing and reflective practice.
