London Metropolitan University is committed to making education available to people from all walks of life and plays an important role in society and our local community. We offer a diverse range of courses across a range of disciplines in three locations across London.

BA Photography is a key course at the Sir John Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design, London Metropolitan University. We offer photography students a new and exciting atelier-style model of study in mixed-level themed studio groups with a famous hands-on approach from tutors and lots of teaching contact. There is a strong focus on professional practice and work-related learning. Each year all Photography tutors get the chance to bid to lead their own studio or project workshops for an academic year. Photography tutors work in a close-knit team on a mission to provide a course of first choice, transforming lives for a diverse range of students from London, the UK and around the world. Our achievement is already remarkable. Our overall student satisfaction is 91% and our NSS teaching scores are all in the 90-95% bracket. That is what you sign up to when you join the Cass photography staff.

With spacious new ateliers and gallery and excellent resources in its digital media, shoot studios, equipment, dark room, scanning and print facilities, BA Photography at the Cass teaches to standards which see its graduates move straight into the photography profession or on to postgraduate study. Those are the objectives you would teach to here.

We seek to employ a highly-motivated, energised and connected learning and teaching innovator in Photography. The ideal candidate for this 0.5 Lecturer post would have a range of prior teaching experience in Photography in Higher Education and be able to demonstrate a strong track record in teaching fashion, advertising, or commercial photography at undergraduate level. You will also have the organisational, communication and computer skills to implement University requirements over course and module administration, assessment and feedback. Jobshare proposals are also welcomed.
