The Birmingham Institute of Fashion & Creative Art (BIFCA) is looking for an English Fellow to help lead its joint western/Chinese team from September 2017.


The department is a collaborative venture - administered by both Birmingham City University (BCU) and Wuhan Textile University (WTU). However, you will be directly employed by BCU in the UK.

BIFCA is undergoing a large expansion, so is looking for a qualified English teacher, with managerial, teacher training and course creation experience to help lead our team into 2017 and beyond.

- Flexibility, a can do attitude and the ability to adapt to other cultures and working styles in a multi-cultural environment.
- Be from a country with English as the native L1 language.
*Applications that do not meet every requirement will still be considered.

Duties include:

- Teaching university English language courses and support classes to BIFCA undergraduate students, across a number of awards / programmes.
- Designing appropriate course materials.
- Undertaking relevant administrative tasks (updating registers and records of work).
- Preparing, conducting and reporting the results of assessment.
- Assisting in curriculum development and project work.
- Internal Teacher training and support.

Salary & Benefits:

Campus Life - Within a 300m radius of your apartment: Three university canteens (meals average 3-12RMB/$0.5-2), a gym (1,800RMB per year/$265), a small supermarket, the BIFCA offices and classrooms, a small mall, a Watsons, sports facilities and a street food market.

Nearby: Wall Mart/Carrefour (1km), Bars and Nightclubs (2km), Cinema (30RMB/$4.5), Western-style shopping area (2-3km).

Opportunities to Save & Cost of Living:

Despite Wuhan being a city of 10.6m people, the cost of living is still reasonably low. e.g. Taxi (10-50RMB/$1.5-7). Expect to save the majority of your wage packet after tax.
